PS CS2 Versus PS Elements 4

08 May 2006 - 07:42 PM

Any thoughts on PS CS2 versus Elements 4? I am new to post processing and wonder if E4 will do or should I just jump in and get PS and learn how to use it.
I'm not trying to be a pro by any means, just an enthusiastic hobbyist trying to get a few pics to possibly make friends and family say Wow, (need to justify to my wife the $ I've spent on this expensive hobby, diving and UW photography) LOL :P
Any thoughts would be appreciated!
Thanks,
Doug

White balancing problems

04 May 2006 - 07:07 PM

Hi all,
Just got back from my first dive trip with my new rig. The problem was that I couldn't get the camera to white balance underwater. I had programed a 1 touch button to do it but it would come back saying that the white balance was unsuccessful every time I tried it.
Does anyone have any thoughts on this subject?
Thanks,
Doug

U/W Photography courses

20 March 2006 - 09:16 PM

Hi all,

I just got my new dSLR gear :D and want to become a better photographer. Has anyone used the [U]Underwater Photographer.com lessons. They have some basic courses that would probably help my pics and some workflow courses which I definately need! ;)

Are there other sources of instruction ie; books, DVDs etc. that you would recommend?

Thanks for any advice,

Doug

ps- Coz in April, can't wait to get the new stuff wet!! :)

New gear

12 March 2006 - 06:30 PM

Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this, but I just had to share my excitement.

Yesterday I ordered an Ikelite housing and DS-125 strobe kit for my Oly E-300 :D I am definately a novice, so this will be an expensive 2-3 times a year hobby but I love it.

I look forward to trying to figure this rig out next month in Cozumel. :(

It is a steep learning curve for me going from a compact P&S to this dSLR, but I have found a lot of good advice here on Wetpixel and hope to be able to get a few decent shots in the future.

I'm sure this will be a long week waiting for delivery..... :blink:

Thanks for indulging my excitement,

Doug

Rig Bouyancy

Hi all,
I have an Olympus E-300 and will soon have an Ikelite housing and possibly an ikelite DS-125 Strobe.
Can anyone tell me anything about the bouyancy characteristics of this set up?

Also, any suggestions for a safety cable (to connect to the BC) set up?

Thanks for any help,
Doug :angry:
