Nikonos equipment and photographic goals

This short guide will help you to determine the best photographic goals for the Nikonos camera set you have or are planning to get. Light and transparency of the environment are two major factors which should be taken into consideration. Poor lightning conditions require strobes and a bracket system to support them. When the water transparency is low, diver should be as close to the subject of photography as possible. If the subject is big enough, a wider angle lens would help him to fit it into the picture frame. If you are not planning to dive, traditional recommendations for surface photography can be used.

However, it is also important to remember that photography is an art that rewards people for breaking the rules.
