New York Times, Digital Underwater
A year ago, Douglas David Seifert took a photo with his Canon D60 that became the first digital cover for Dive Magazine. In tomorrow’s New York Times, the Science section will feature a story on the annual snapper spawning ritual in Belize, which will contain two digital underwater images of whale sharks, also taken by Douglas. One was snapped with a Canon EOS D60, and the other with a Canon EOS 1Ds.
Also be on the lookout for the current issue of Nature’s Best, which – surprise! – features both film-based and digital whale shark photos by Mr. Seifert.
