Hi,

I live in the Central Coast of California (near San Luis Obispo). If anyone knows of an underwater photographic society in this area, please let me know! The ones in Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego, and Northern California are just too far away for me to attend their meetings and events.

Thanks,

Laurie

Hi,

 

 I'm Salvador from Spain.

 

 Altough I'm not an expertise UW photographer I've decided to join the forum (by a forum member advice) since I urgently need to resell two spaces for a liveaboard in Isla del Coco (Costa Rica) in August'18. I've had a personnal problem and unfortunately I can not go. I'm going to publish it in the right subforum in the next minutes.

 

 Thanks to all.

New to the site, and just stopping in to say hello.. looks like I've got a lot of reading to do.

First off, I'm not new to photography or scuba diving.. but the two of them combined - yes - other than a gopro and no strobes or lights. Mind you, I'm doing a scuba re-cert as it was early 2000's when I last did any significant amount of diving (and for some reason, telling people I have an IDEA AOW C-Card confuses them.  Is IDEA not very recognized any more?  Plus a re-cert with the g/f is the only way to get her diving...  win-win at bit of a cost, but that's ok.

Anyway, for cameras, I have a Nikon D750 and Sony a6500 - but am thinking the Sealife DC2000 package would be a good u/w starter rig - that way I've got 'less gear' to fumble with while diving for the first bit - looks like it is a fairly capable system.  I had having another camera, but at the same time, then I don't have to worry about flooding a housing for either of my 'good' cameras while learning to juggle the gear.  Happy to hear your thoughts, but off to dig through the forums for some research!

Hello, Margaret Soraya from the highlands of Scotland here. I've been a pro photographer for 14 years and I live for anything to do with water. Underwater photography is new to me so just learning and needing to buy kit. I have a long term project planned involving photographing landscapes on the Outer Hebrides through and from their very clear waters.

Hi, 

 
I’m Neil from Brisbane Australia and I thought I would finally introduce myself as I have been lurking here for many months.
 
I have been diving since 2002. I started underwater photography soon after starting with a disposable underwater film camera (all photos were complete rubbish) before progressing to my first compact digital camera, the Olympus C-5050Z. 
 
Nowadays, I dive on rebreather with a Canon 7Dmark ii in an Nauticam housing with Retra strobes as equipment of choice.
 
I’m still making terrible lighting errors with strobes but I’m hoping to improve and perhaps make some more creative shots over the coming months.
 
Neil

New here and from Florida. Upgrading from Sea Life 1400 Pro Duo to Sony a6500 with Fantasea Housing. Big learning curve.

Good Morning!

 

I'm an amateur underwater photographer based in Bristol, UK, been diving and taking pics for a few years. Currently enjoying a lot of taking pics while snorkelling around the UK at the moment, love the freedom.  Looking forward to picking up tips and techniques from the excellent forums here!

 

All the best,

Hi everyone,

 

Dave here, from Darwin, the Top End of Australia.

Looking forward to joining the discussion, learning, and sharing.

 

I'm a fairly experienced photographer/diver who loves to learn new skills, techniques, styles, and I enjoy helping others to do the same.

 

I now shoot with a GH5 (stills and video), but still enjoy the virtues of my compact setups from time to time.

 

Check out my website to see some of my work, including my other interest/business - aerial photography.
