Topics I've Started

Chuuk and Typhoon

30 March 2015 - 12:50 PM

Just saw on my FB that the island of Chuuk has been hit by a typhoon. If anyone here has been there to dive the wrecks, you know that the island very ill equipped to handle such a thing. I hope that all live on the island are okay and survive this storm. It is very unusual for a storm to hit this island. I hope that outside aid will be provided to the people of Chuuk. These are some of the nicest people I have ever met.

Would this cameras be ideal for UW? Say if you specialize in macro? Would love to hear others thoughts about these two cameras.

Santa Barbara Island

This last Saturday, went out on the Dive Boat "Magician" to Santa Barbara Island. We were orginally slated to goto SCI but it was closed by the military. We were only able to dive the front side of SBI due to the incoming swell. Overall, had three great dives. Here are some pictures from the day of diving at SBI:

Santa Barbara Island 10/25/14


Photographing Sea Lions

27 October 2014 - 01:18 PM

I was out diving Santa Barbara Island this last weekend. I was diving with the Sea Lions. My 5DM3 and my Ikelite strobes only will sync up to 1/200th or 1/250th I think. How do I shoot these guys when they are moving as 1/250th is to slow. I still get a lot of motion blur. Look forward to suggestions.

Great White Cage Diving @ Guadalupe Island

05 September 2014 - 07:49 AM

Over this last Labor Day weekend, I ventured to Guadalupe Island with Great White Shark Diving to visit and hopefully have some wonderful interactions with the Great White Sharks that live at this island. This island is a major breeding ground for the GWS'. We had up to 11 different sharks and several surface breaches. Unfortunately, for me all the surface breaches it seemed to happen when I was in the cage. Here are some pics from the trip:
