I thought I would put these up for some criticism to see what I can learn.

Here are some 60mm macro lens pics and a WA French Angel.


A Question

04 April 2007 - 07:25 PM

I was wondering if any of you more experienced uw photographers can explain the following photo. I have several similar photos shot under similar circumstances, i.e. 200 ISO, 1/500, f16. Nikon D80, Sea and Sea DXD80 housing, twin YS-110 strobes. There seems to be a varying degree of "shading" when I shoot Manual with high shutter speed and f16 or higher aperture. I have no clue what is causing this and I hope it is something simple that I have overlooked.
Thanks for the help.

Macro Lenses

Attached File  DSC_0016_Gallery.jpg   49.67KB   165 downloadsI began an informal poll of UW Photographers at Our World Underwater, Dive and Travel show, in Chicago 2 weeks ago. Here is the question:
If you were only going to buy 1 Macro lens and port etc. would it be the 60 mm or the 105mm?
I know in a way that it is a dumb question since neither divers or photographers can keep their mits off of the latest, newest or niftiest piece of gear and I haven't been able to walk out of a dive shop/camera shop without spending some money either, but consider it an exercise. I've asked both pros and amateurs and though i am not surprised by the poll results so much as how adamant the defence of their choice. Its about 50-50 right now.
