Very impressive!


In Topic: Expose to the right?

22 May 2015 - 04:02 AM

I am currently reviewing several underwater photography textbooks that have been released in the past year or so, and it is interesting to note that they advocate shooting at base ISO whenever possible. In fact one suggests stopping down is preferable to moving off 100 ISO!

 

They are written by folks that did a lot of film shooting.

That's an interesting observation - and probably a very important one.  My main background is in film photography, and I am still learning how different the digital world is.  A lot of the skills that I had learned just aren't needed or are wrong, so digital can be a challenge still.  But, that's also what makes it interesting, and why I appreciate all the great advice here on Wetpixel. 


In Topic: Why do you shoot underwater?

I'm nowhere to close to being at the level that you folks are discussing, and really appreciate that you give help and advice to those of us who are less talented. I simply shoot to be able to document what I see, and to share it with the folks that I have been traveling with (as well as anyone else who would like to see my work).  It is just about the pleasure of seeing a different world.

Nice stuff, you've got some nice clips there.  I also enjoyed the music.  Its a bit different from what we normally hear, and quite enjoyable.


In Topic: Locline. Does it always creak?

Mine creak.   I try to pre-adjust them before I get into final position, but I realize that's not always possible.

 

For what its worth, I am always seriously impressed with your work, and am looking forward to more.  Thanks for sharing so freely.
