message It's not the camera. The worlds best camera won't make you a better photographer anymore then the worlds best stove will make you a better cook. Start by reading. There are hundreds (if not thousands) of books and websites dedicated to photography and improving skills. Study art. Painters use a brush, photographers use a camera and both mediums attract the eye. Find your underwater photographic passion (wrecks, divers, macro, etc.) and start shooting using your new found knowledge. Look at photos you like of comparable subjects. Study them. Understand what you like about them (lighting, composition, etc.) and develop your own techniques and style. Know the rules that create great photos, make them your own and then break those rules. They're only guidelines anyways. Keep shooting. Show us your stuff. There's lots of people here who can help. Above all else, enjoy what you do.

Trust this helps!
