In Topic: Moray Eel, maybe too busy?

15 May 2017 - 03:44 PM

It's a good shot, well exposed, but I also think it is a little "busy".  In addition to Tim's great advice, try to get lower if possible.  I tend to like eye level shots and morays often cooperate if they are stationary and not on the move hunting.

In Topic: Tubbataha - Will i regret not bringing macro?

In my experience, no, you won't miss your macro lens.  Tubbataha is all drift diving.   If there are night dives on top of the reef then you can use macro, but to be honest, I did not find those dives very interesting and skipped after the first one.

Nope, out of the bag and into the bins individually.

I was behind a guy recently who was carrying A lot of classic Hasselblad gear - two bodies, multiple film backs, and 6 lenses, all carefully packed in bubble wrap. They made him unwrap each item!

Beijing airport is now asking to remove all photo equipment from cases and x-ray bodies and lenses separately. Also things like laptop power adapters and cables. So it's not just about batteries. The trend seems to be spreading.
