In Topic: Setup for ambient light shooting of deep wrecks

17 September 2016 - 06:36 AM

I know a coule of people who shoot quite happily with video lights, but that's mainly on deep UK weeks without a lot of ambient light. You do loose a lot of flexibility when trying to balance natural and artificial light.

The problem with compact cameras (and full size dslr) is that the cost of the camera is a minor part, once you have added housings, extra glass and strobes the costs rapidly spiral! If you already have an S95 eBay or ads on here may be a good option pull together a decent system.

These were taken with a Olympus XZ-1 in a nauticam housing and a UWL-H100 wide angle adapter + dome.

Not going to win any prizes but gives you an Idea of whats possible.

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.

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.
