Hey all,

Bought a point n' shoot, took it onto a few UK dive trips and fell in love with underwater photography! So here I am, looking to upgrade my current system.

:P

Hello to all. Just joined Wetpixel on the recommendation of someone we met on a recent trip to Utila. I've been diving for several years, and have been an avid amateur photographer since high school - many many moons ago. Got into UW photography 2 years ago, using a Sealife DC1000. I've done enough with it now that I've decided it's time to move up. I'll be converting my D700 to my UW camera, and will be getting the Nauticam housing. Principal lens will be the Nikkor 14-24 F2.8. Looking forward to many more years of taking only pictures and leaving only bubbles.
I would rather be ashes than dust!
I would rather that my spark should burn out
in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot.
I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom
of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet.
The function of man is to live, not to exist.
I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them.
I shall use my time.

Aloha from Oahu, Hawaii! My name is Jeremy and I have been shooting UW video off and on for about a year as a freediver. I am now looking to move in a different direction with my gear and will probably shoot stills only. This forum was recommended to me by the folks at Backscatter and I'm looking forward to learning much more from what I can already see is a wealth of information here.

Hi, I'm relatively new to underwater photography, starting taking photos in November 2011 and adding in dual strobes in January 2012.

I have a Canon Powershot S95 with an Ikelite housing and two Sea&Sea YS-01 strobes, with a set of arms and platform bought from Optical Ocean Sales.

Hi
I'm from Santa Cruz, CA. My wife and I run a small dive travel and certification scuba business. I've been shooting video for a few years. Recently flooded my camera on our last trip so I'm in the market for a new one.

Hey all !

Finally posting on the forums after having used them so many times and digging so much useful tips and help over time.

I'm a marine biologist / instructor and have been lucky enough to see & work in some of the nicest coral reef environments in the world.

I am currently between jobs and just bumming around SE Asia. A couple of weeks in Raja Ampat, another couple of weeks in Sipadan, and already considering a trip back to RA, which blew my mind for ever !

I also just finished setting up my 1st photo website which i'm posting in the 'photo galleries' forum, have a look !

Thanks for the support & best fishes !!

H.

Kitchens Sale Leeds



We have Tons of kitchen shops and kitchen manufactures in Leeds. www.ex-display-kitchens.co.uk is by far the cheapest hence the name I suppose. Not quite Leeds but just on the border near Halifax I think. Looked on the internet for a kitchen for sale in Leeds and got three local companies round to give me a price and two from down south. The local companies were half the price of the guys down south. So if you're looking for a kitchen for sale in Leeds then my advice is shop local.

Howdie yall. Been lurking and reading on and off and as i just recently managed to do my very first underwater shoot decided to start be more active =)

Got a Ikelite housing with the smallest DS51 strobe and the large dome for the 17-40 F4L on my Canon EOS 5D Mk2. Worked suprisingly well considering the circumstances i was shooting in, c:a 1 m visibility, dark, murky waters, lot of particles in the water, no sunlight (raining on the surface ;). And it performed like a charm, very happy =)

Going to post the first pictures in the gallery section when im allowed to post there =)

And other than that, im Swedish, 40 years old, ex-scuba instructor (PADI OWSI) and technical diver (IANTD Adv. Nitrox) and an old apnea diver to boot. I work as a fashion photographer normally so you can guess what kind of animals im shooting in the water ;)

Hello from the cold waters of the Pacific NW. Photography is my passion. My main focus is wildlife photography and I have been slowly expanding into underwater photography. I've learned a great deal of things lurking through the forums and would like to contribute when possible.

Hi all,
My name is Dean & I've just discovered wetpixel, which seems to full of helpful advise and plenty of stunning photos.
I'm a novice in the underwater photography lark, but have been quite successful in the past using my Fuji finepix Z100fd (digi) although I now wish to step up a level & invest in my 1st DSLR. I rather fancy a Nikon, but am not sure which model will best suit my needs. I'm rather into my critters so will probably be shooting macro most of the time, although I would also like it to incorporate a video function. I have been considering the D3100 & the D3200 purely because they're aimed at newbies like me, although I'm always open to advise if you think there's a different model that will suit my needs better.
I look forward to your help & advise.
