In Topic: Why do you shoot underwater?

20 May 2015 - 10:21 PM

Hi Adam, Steve,

 

I'm in the same boat as Steve on this - although the photo contest I won wasn't for u/w images. In terms of u/w images, I've had a few published in newspapers and magazines, and others used in ads, banners, and educational graphics. As requested, I've also given a few to good friends to decorate their office space or homes.

 

I shoot to try to have other folks see the ocean and any other u/w environment the way I do - with a sense of wonder, amazement and with a great deal of respect. I also shoot because I really enjoy being u/w and being able to produce tangible memories makes it even better! 

 

That said, I have no issue at all with those that are able to make a living, or some part of it, from u/w photography. In my very humble opinion, shooting to win contests is the least noble of the reasons to go to such a place. 

 

Cheers,

 

Lee


In Topic: Ikelite battery capacity NiMH for DS 125/160/161

15 April 2015 - 12:12 PM

I'd second Aussiebyron's comment/suggestion. I very recently replaced the aged battery packs on my two DS-160s with Li-Ion and really like the benefits - much lighter in the water (topside as well, of course!), very quick recycling and only have to recharge them every couple/few dives (I tend to average 50-100 shots a dive)! In short, they were a very worthwhile replacement for my well-used NiMH battery packs.

Hi,

 

Are these still for sale? If so, would you be willing to ship to Canada?

 

Thanks,

Nice images of reef fishes - not the easiest, or co-operative, of subjects!
