In Topic: How to shoot like Japanese UW photographer?

27 August 2014 - 08:57 AM

Japanese style? :o 

Shallow depth of field is just a technique used to highlight a certain part of an image (and sometimes an unavoidable result of great magnification in macro images...). Black or blurred backgrounds have nothing to do with where you take the pictures... just open your lenses, get close (powerful close up lenses will help getting SDF) and enjoy.


In Topic: acrylic vs. glass domes

I have never used a glass dome and I think I have many sunburst images without any problems... I recently acquired a SAGA 4" coated glass mini dome but I have not tried it yet... we´ll see...

The question is: Is anyone able to tell whether a photo has been taken with a plastic or a glass dome? The answer is no... It is much more important, specially with FF and rectilinear WA lenses, to use the right extension rings/configuration.

Drew, you are always a high caudal fountain of knowledge! :) 

 

I have seen that in some operators is a free dive/ no reg thing; is it like that with them all? I ask because it seems difficult to take pictures like that?
