Would be an interesting lens...15mm f4 Macro Lens.

Yesterday, 05:41 AM

Would be an interesting lens underwater, if it could be housed, if I was still shooting a DSLR underwater....

Going from DX - 4/3s - FX - Compact, My Digital De-Evolution

20 May 2015 - 01:24 PM

Something I put together about how I have come to the conclusion a Compact camera is all the camera I need for my underwater shooting.  Covers costs of the different systems, issues with traveling, how many megapixels do you really need. All based on what am I really doing with my photos???  Plus my experience over 200hrs underwater shooting a compact system.

 

Sorry to lazy to figure out how to post it with photos here, so here is the link: http://www.aquablued...al-de-evolution

 

A couple of photos from said system and our last trip to Ambon, Indonesia on the Dewi Nusantara

Solomons Trip diving from the Bilikiki live aboard

16 May 2015 - 09:50 AM

So a little lazy putting these together, one is the long version I do for us the short is for the general public.  

 

After the 3min mark (in the long version) Julie has some excellent macro/super macro video.  She does all this without a tripod, which we avoid after seeing people just plop them on live corals.

FS The perfect travel case and 2 Sea&Sea Duel Sync Cords

18 March 2015 - 08:18 AM

Have found the Storm Case 935 to be about the perfect carry on for travel. Will fit a complete 4/3, Mirrorless or compact system.  Including strobes*, arms, chargers, 2 ports*, etc...  This was the case I carried if all the other bags did not make the trip.  Will fit in all but the most minuscule overheads and if you have to Gate Check its super durable.  

 

Shows some minor wear and spots where Security, and Customs stickers have been peeled off.  But in perfect working order and has all the padded inserts.

 

New: $185 Sell: $95 or best offer

How to charge a "major" sports equip manufacturer?? Not dive related.

14 March 2015 - 09:34 AM

So a company exec of a fairly major sporting line (not Nike big but products are used in Pro Leagues) happened across my website and asked if I would be interested in a "location shoot of their products in action?"  Ha! He assumes I actually know what I am doing and shooting underwater has anything to do with shooting on dryland.  They are sending me a story board of what they are thinking of, so I think I can hash out the shots needed.  Probably 2-3 days of work. No major travel.

 

Images will be used in their online/print promotions and on the physical packaging.  

 

Looked around the web and found the following:

 

Time $100 per hour

Processing Photos: $7-40 per hour

Wear and Tear on Equipment per Shoot: $30

Travel Costs: $1per mile

Other Costs, cds, postage, etc...: cost plus 25%

 

Anything else I should ask or take into account??  All and any input is welcome.
