In Topic: Martin Edge Tuition Days

14 April 2014 - 09:29 AM

I first attended one of Martin's courses back in 2001 with a digital camera, everyone else had film cameras but it improved my photography enormously.

 

I then spent a day with Martin in April 2011 on a one to one which again was invaluable. The basis of that day was a review of my portfolio and questioning as to why I had taken specific photographs with particular settings as well as a full review of all those camera settings deep within the Nikon menus that we just skip over. In the afternoon Martin accompanied me into the pool to work on the weaknesses that had been identified in the portfolio review. 

 

I can highly recommend a day with Martin, he has helped to develop my skills.

 

All the best

In Topic: competitions whats your motivation.

I hate competitions, because I hate losing!

 

I've done "Splash-in", on-the-day, competitions 

 

Tim,

 

But then you win the  overall prize at a Splash-In with someone else's crab and jet off to the Maldives!

 

By the way, Iike the Maldives photos.

 

With regard to Goose's original question, I like competitions because in a very general sense they give me the opportunity of assessing my images against my peers. The problem is finding the time to enter them! 

 

All the best

He/she has taken down Alex Mustard's shark photo but there are certainly more that I recognise, sadly none of mine!

 

 

I think you are right I recognise this shot http://igviewer.com/...1778964_9432083 as a photo that Alex Mustard took in the Bahamas in 2008

 

Regards

 

 

 

All the best

In Topic: Moyo Island Diving

31 July 2013 - 01:08 AM

I dived two dives each morning so that I could enjoy my lunch!

 

Because the resort was quiet and I was the only one diving I had a guide to myself for the vast majority of dives. Hopefully you will get similar

 

I would make sure that you do some wide angle photography as the coral colours are stunning but you are right there not many pelagics or larger fish.

 

Have fun.
