#394564 Post Processing Software Advice

Posted by tubestance on 19 April 2018 - 07:43 AM

I'll chime in with the same preference as everyone above. Lightroom Classic CC as part of the photographer package (with Photoshop) is the way to go. Best practice is to store at least two copies of your raw files on external hard drives. Cloud storage is far too slow and not an option on most international dive trips.



There are also a few things to consider before jumping in, primarily file naming structure and organization of your library (folder structure). Many do this by year and location, but it's all personal preference. Erin Quigley is another great resource for Lightroom.


Good luck!

#393632 DIY Underwater Video Tripod

Hey all,


I just put together a little video on making a tripod for my camera housing that rotates around the port - horizontal for traditional video and vertical for social media.  Figured I would share the details.

#385981 Who shares on Instagram?

Posted by tubestance on 19 July 2017 - 07:18 AM

Jumping on the wagon here. I use Instagram simply to follow photographers, get inspired, learn about new destinations /conditions, unique marine life events, and generally just geek out on images.
