I ended up creating my own list (with lots of input from yours!). These are from the keynote presentation... :-)

In Topic: Threatening to violate copyright. At least they're upfront about it!

I like Bart's suggestion the best, but no fool would pay that for them would they? (Mind you, I had a show at a National Park Centre this summer and sold several 8 x 12s in Walmart frames for $195 a piece. No accounting for some people's tastes...)


Just a follow up to this, she has decided to do some of the prints now, and some later, at the price I asked for.  I'm meeting her on Friday... Hopefully she has her wallet!


Thanks for the advice guys!

In Topic: Ikelite 161 or something else?

 ...for me that is not a terribly important issue since nudibranchs rarely move terribly fast.

They probably move faster than shipwrecks, but I find if I shoot one image at a time, that pesky exhaust bubble will ALWAYS obliterate the diver's face.  :(

In Topic: F'n Stop - big rookie mistake

On the back of my 7d housing is a label that says "flash up?"

 If I put a label on my housing big enough to remind me of the stuff I need to remember, I wouldn't be able to see the housing.


There is a lesson to be learned from the rebreather crowd. My old friend Jill Heinerth insists on using details checklists before diving a RB. They are complex machines  the repercussions of a failure are more severe. 


I use a checklist for camera gear and dive gear when travelling, so a simple "Assemble and Test" list wouldn't be a stretch.


Maybe I'll get to work on that.... ;-)

In Topic: Losing the blues in CMYK...

Thanks Bill... The images are flattened so I'll try the other!


I find I have similar problems getting photo prints made... it took me about 4 labs before I could find one that would render the blue-green of our northern lakes... Persistence paid off finally, so hopefully it will here as well!
