#348104 The Value of Underwater Photo Workshops?

Posted by AndyBarker on 24 May 2014 - 11:26 AM


Workshops are the best way to go, you dive with people who have the same interests. 

When you go away on normal dive trips you don't normally have type of diving, so you end 

up with that will do shots, rather than composed shots.Also the learning curve is a lot easier

as you meet lots of different photographers, with different levels of experience.

You also meet many new friends, in my experience well worth the money.

#341556 Service on UV-housings

i would say follow the manufacturers requirements, as far as service intervals are required, personally I would send it back to the dealer.



#335599 diopter use with 105mm?

Posted by AndyBarker on 09 August 2013 - 10:31 PM

I use the both internal & external I find on both that depth of field is something you have to use to & it can take a little while to get the
Hang of it. I would say that the external are more user friendly as has been said you can remove them under water, I think I got mine from dryron which push into the front of my SeaCam port. When I use my 12/24 wide angle Nikon I use a Lens diopter with a small
Dome port which sharpens the edges a great deal.

Great shots Damien looks like you have remembered all the points Alex taught you in the red sea.
I love the lion fish great blue behind the subject very well done.

#314037 Logistics of camera protection between topside dives

Posted by AndyBarker on 04 August 2012 - 12:27 PM

I go to Malta quite regular I use a cool bag to transport my housing, I place it the bag during surface intervals, to keep the sun off it more than any thing else.
I only make sure the port is clean before the second dive, only rinsing it back at the dive centre. i have never had any problems, i think that all housings what ever
the make are more robust than we all think they are. I think build up of Sea salt on the port glass is more important between dives. Also Tim makes a great point,their is no point not take your camera.
Only my two cents worth.
