Wow! These photos are great! You must not be using those cheap throw-away underwater cameras that I use! Mine never look this good!
You're right. I've always felt that disposable camera produce disposable photos. Most of us are using housed digital cameras. I'm using an Olympus C5050 in an Olympus housing.

Bruce,

Technique wise, how do you get such photos of a shrimp like that??? Unreal. I can't find those type of critters.... They escape me....... lol......

Here's some of mine

Swim really slowly and look closely at all the anemones you find. Lots of stuff likes to live in/by anemones.

 

Sometimes you can find small stuff by looking for larger stuff they like to use for habitat.

 

Take lots of photos when you find that special something so you'll be more likely to get a "keeper". Also, I use Photoshop Elements to "help out" some less than perfect images.

Excellent advice.... I just love that photo....My problem is I get so excited at all the things I see that I randomly take photos.. I'm really trying to work at being more specific or focusing in on certain things.. But taking my time.... I guess it's still "new diver" syndrome..... lol......

Here's a couple more I just took on my cruise....
