Hi,

Not exactly new to underwater photography but still learning digital.

Used to use a F3 in a Tussey housing and F801 in an Aquatica housing with a combination of Nikon, Sea&Sea and Ikelite strobes.

Now using a D70 in a Sea&Sea housing and about to upgrade to a Sea&Sea housing for my D300.

Looking for like minded divers in UAE area who don't mind staying i nthe same spot for 60 mins :)

Not been doing too much diving in recent years due to work and having to fly a lot on business. Trying to change that now.

Richard,

We need to meet up as I think we have some common friends e.g. Carole Harris and possibly Steve who goes under the name of Yellow Box of Doom in our 4x4 club

Planning a slide show of Red Sea pics soon, hope you can join

Hi Sharky ;-)

Yes the YBOD mentioned you on Friday night.
I hope to get a splash this weekend but guess your giving out golden shovels !

I'll shout next time I get permission.

Cheers,

Unfortunately will be on a plane coming back from Belgium and only back a day before going to Kuwait.

Just been speaking to Stevie from Scuba Dubai about doing a re-breather course .... very tempting

Planning next dive on June 5 at Dibba Rock again, despite the poor viz I had some interesting shots of tube anemones and want to experiment with double strobes and variable lighting
