In Topic: Advice on strobes - newcomer to underwater photography

16 November 2016 - 07:39 AM

Suggestions:

Buy The Underwater Photographer by Martin Edge, 4th ed.  Then read it.  As you practice/learn more, read more or read again.

Get in 20-30 dives with no photo gear before considering taking it.  Then start using it on dives with easy dive conditions and reasonable visibility.

Consider practicing diving with photo taking in a pool. You can learn quite a bit about your system this way and it usually costs little.  You can learn about your lights and how much light they offer you in perfect conditions in the pool.

 

I like fiber optic triggered strobes and those work with your housing.

People in the UK can likely provide better insight for lighting local diving.

 

Hope this gives you ideas for getting started.

I am thinking of staying at Heron Island for perhaps a week or so.  The water is warmer than Byron Bay and better viz, I think.

Anyone done diving near there?

 

Yep, a huge place.

We are open to travel to one diving area.


In Topic: Dome port reflection?

The Nexus mini-dome 1017 for the Tokina 10-17 has an internal baffle fitting that avoids this problem.

with other domes, I use soft foam cut to fit around the lens and inside the dome/port, same as mentioned above.

I think I found the foam at a hobby store.
