The spelaeophoto
Taking photo in caves is one of the numerous aspect of spelaeology, of course it can be very satisfactory. By the way its products, as photographs and slide, are important documents for publications, web sites, projections and so forth; although the spelaeophoto in not so loved inside the groups. It requires an hard and patient work and a lot of efforts due to the particular environment conditions. Darkness, high humidity, mud and water, represent negative factors to be won, so that a big self motivation, interest and above all a great concord between the team work, are strictly needed. Photo technique training, artistic inspiration and caving knowledge are some essential skills for a good  spelaeophotographer. I hope this site can help and motivate all who wish to get this interesting and satisfactory speleo adventure.
