First attempt at underwater photography

14 July 2012 - 03:05 AM

Hello all,

I've just returned from St Lucia where I took my first steps into the world of underwater photography as a diver. Obviously I have little idea about what I am doing at this stage but I've created a simple blog where I have posted some of the photos and videos I took and I would appreciate some feedback and suggestions on what to work on but keep in mind that I am very much a beginner and am finding it difficult do to the most basic things Posted Image
The address is http://www.divingiguana.com/

I am using a Sea&Sea DX-GE5 with the flash Sea&Sea YS-Q2 and I got a suggestion about the "Underwater" action for Photoshop Elements so I've used that on the images.

Hello all,

I've just bought my first underwater camera (Sea & Sea DX-GE5) and used it a bit during a trip to Curacao. Naturally the images are so so (I am no doubt making all the rookie mistakes) but at least some are salvageable and I would like to work a bit with the colors on them. I am using Mac and have the Pixelmator software, are any easy functions available in that software for underwater photos or some tips on how to make the basic improvements on colors etc? My knowledge on working with images are limited to the bare minimum such as cropping, changing size and such things so I need some help to get started :-)

Thanks in advance for any help on this.
