In Topic: My New Book: Underwater Photography Masterclass

12 May 2016 - 09:26 AM

Well I haven't suddenly started winning photo competitions but I did spend several happy hours practicing macro lighting on a mushroom on the dinning table.

A well written book, clear and to the point.

In Topic: Sigma 15 fisheye, least parallax point anyone?

20 March 2016 - 12:19 PM

Put the /lens on a big sheet of graph paper. set up a vertical screen (white cardboard box) behind it and them used a laser level to project a vertical line into the lens and onto a line drawn on the screen, drew lines on the paper to match the laser line then looked for where they converged. it was all a bit rough.

Rough measurement  made a while ago, about 38mm from the mount surface with the lens focused at 300mm

In Topic: Camera tether suggestions??

05 January 2016 - 10:31 AM

I made one by splicing loops into a bit of rope (good excuse to learn to splice). Just don't do what I did and get complacent, let go of the camera swimming for the shot in 70m of water - it wasn't clipped on! the worlds fastest decent followed, caught the camera and found the wreck.

In Topic: how to DIY strobe floats from styrofoam ?

21 August 2015 - 08:16 AM

Couldn't be bothered with painting / coating the floats just used this stuff:  http://www.easycompo...Foam-Core.aspx

The layers glued together with evostick and then the whole lot held on with electrical tape.
