In Topic: Overexposure problem using TTL (Olympus E-M1)

I can't see any photos here but from the text descriptions it sounds like your strobes were set incorrectly.  If the strobes are set to TTL and the camera flash setting on fill, you should get the same foreground exposure with large or small apertures, with the larger apertures giving you more ambient light in and smaller apertures giving a darker background.  You might try all the combinations at home to see how they work with your setup.

After a second look in full screen mode I think you're right about that being a squat lobster.  I confused a bit of debris for an appendage!

More great stuff - thanks once again for sharing these episodes!

 

Did you also get some close up footage of what looks like a skeleton shrimp that appears in the background at about 2:40?

Great advice, if you travel only occasionally.  Coming from a family of tropical medical experts, I am fairly sure that their advice also includes a caution against profilaxis more or less continuously for years or even decades.  That's why I use one and not the other.  It isn't advice for everyone, it all depends on specific circumstances. 

 

 

The advice from colleagues in Infectious Diseases Medicine is protection and prophylaxis.

. . .  it might also work with larger predators like sharks . . .

 

Seriously, you would put that in a BC pocket in open water?  Is it somehow April 1st already?
