In Topic: Near-surface shooting

Unfortunately I had no control over the position of the cage (and subequently the position of the sun). But it's something to bear in mind should I do something similar in the future.

 

Also, the flash was indeed turned off, so that wasn't the issue.

 

Thanks for all the tips :)

Sounds like a good starting point. Thanks for the advice :)


In Topic: South Africa white shark cage diving?

16 January 2014 - 11:45 PM

Damn. Wish I'd seen this thread before I booked my trip.

 

I've booked with a dive company called Into The Blue to go out next weekend while I'm in Cape Town for work. They're picking me up from there and taking me down to the boat for the cage diving. I only have one day off, so was really chasing a company who could run the transfers from Cape Town for me. Are they ok? They appear to be a PADI 5* Dive School, so took that as at least some evidence that they're safe.

 

Also, do you have any advice on photography in the cage while shark diving? I've never done this kind of "near surface" dive before and have been told "no strobes or lights" in the cage. So I'm admittedly a little bit unsure on how to shoot. I've got a G12, so can manipulate the settings a little bit. I'm also debating on whether to pack my w/a lens for the housing or whether to just stick with the flat port.

 

Any info would be very much appreciated!
