Does this look like ordnance to you?

12 March 2007 - 02:41 PM

I found what looks like an old artillery shell yesterday. The area I found it in was used for target practice up until the 70's but was supposed to be cleaned since then.

What does this look like to you guys? The whole thing is about a 1 1/2 feet long and shaped like a giant bullet.

If this was an old shell could it possibly still pose a hazard? It is located in about 35ft of water in a very popular/busy snorkel and dive spot.

Canon fullframe wideangle choices?

31 January 2007 - 04:47 PM

I'm upgrading to a 5D soon and I'm hoping to get some better corners and maybe go a little wider then the 27mm equivalent that I got out of the 20D and 17-40l.

Does anyone have any experience with the 20mm 2.8, 24mm 2.8, 28mm 2.8 or even the 15mm fisheye with a fullframe camera and ike's 8' dome? I hear that the 15mm fisheye with a TC is another option?

Thx

I need some licensing tips

10 December 2006 - 08:41 PM

I've been approached by a company that wants to use my photos. Unfortunately the way they approached it was: "Please show us all your stuff" and "We pay $50 for every shot utilized, whether it be for the website or for our promotional materials."

Now I can't claim that my work is anywhere near as good as some of you here, but fifty bucks doesn't get me very excited. And I don't go into a store and tell them what I pay for their merchandise. Maybe I'm just having trouble letting go, I don't know. I considered just telling them no, but it's probably better if I just show them a license contract with a reasonable fee.

Can anyone give me some tips on what such a contract should look like and what I should charge for both web
and promo materials?

My first UW photos

09 April 2006 - 04:40 PM

I finally bought a housing for my 20d and I wanted to share my experience.

I'm impressed with Ike's housing and the 8" dome it all looks and feels very nice.

The large dome is beautiful and performs great but it does seem a little easy to scratch. After 3 dives I'm already getting tiny scratches and I can't figure out why. Can sand particles in the water scratch an acrylic dome? I'll just have to get good at polishing that thing i guess.

I'm overall very pleased with the equipment and the results that I'm getting. I'm new to underwater photography and the only experience I have came from reading this board so I'd like to thank wetpixel for that. (I love my new softsided cooler turned gear bag)

Anyway these are my first shots, taken during some spare dive time over the last two days. I don't have any strobes yet so it's all available light.
