Hi! My name is Mark from the Central Coast of California. I am a life long surfer and have "discovered" photography about a year ago. I am still trying to find my niche whilst learning along the way. For the past year I have been shooting with an Olympus PEN EPL-1. I have collected a few lower end/inexpensive lenses to practice with. Namely, the Panasonic 20mm pancake lens (for travel/street/live concerts) and an Olympus 9-18mm wide angle (for landscape/water shots). I have just purchased the PTEP-01 water housing and am now saving for the Zen WA-100 domed port so that I can jump in the water and would like to start taking some surf shots. Anything from shorebreak to surfing action. I look forward to any insight anyone could give along the way. I'll keep practicing and I hope to see you out there!  :surfing:

Hi guys,

 

My name is Andy. im quite an established diver, been doing it for a while now, both in blue water and in the cold waters of home. Im very new to the underwater photography scene though. The set up i have at the moment is basic i guess, i have a canon G15, with housing and twin arms, and im using a sea and sea ys02 strobe and a big blue al focus light.

I have been trying to read up on settings, and the best options for macro pictures, as well as moving fast objects, would any one have some advice on which modes are best to use for a beginner? I here that P and M are the two that work best, although, ISO and Shutter speeds are confussing to say the least. Off to the maldives in a few weeks, be nice to be able to have an idea of what are the best settings to use.

Hope to get some good ideas, ill be reading up on the forums in the mean time!

I'm new to underwater photography and have been fishing deepwater species for years, i'm on this site mainly to figure out how to get video at depths of over 200 feet, using minimal to no lighting.

Hello! I have been taking shark pictures in Jupiter and really appreciate digital over the old film cameras.

Now it's just sorting through and choosing the best of the batch.

 

I would love some suggestions on editing software. Everything seems very complex?

 

Thanks, Doug

Hi all. Look forward to learning something about underwater photography....being a beginner. I live in North Wales, where the photographic conditions leave a lot to be desired this year (2 metres on a good day, due to storm lifted sediment). Am a keen Seasearcher, upgrading to Surveyor this summer (if we can get into the water and see anything).....Have used a Canon Ixus 95 very successfully up to now with inbuilt flash...just moved on to CanonS120 and single Inon S2000 strobe with 2x 5" inon ultralight arms - less than successfully!! Having problems with handling and buoyancy of set up. Will be posting somewhere about this. Using a Fantasea Nano LED focus light on cold shoe mount. Problems with this too...possibly faulty sensor. Oh well....it's a big learning curve....:)

Hello from Minneapolis.  I've been shooting underwater for a number of years, but due to my location, my opportunities are sporadic at best.  Currently have an Olympus EPL-1 setup with single Inon S2000 strobe.

Hello, All!

I'm Elliot and live in Marina del Rey, CA. I've been diving about 5 years and shooting UW from about 4 of those... I think that I've only done a half dozen, or so, dives w/out a camera since starting. I joined wetpixel to improve my technique and maybe find a few good deals on upgrading my kit. Currently, I'm using a Olympus E-PL2, in a Oly housing.... I look forwards to learning to become a better photographer!
