£400 not cheap enough? With the weak pound that has got to be the best bargain around. Any cheaper and it is not worth selling. It may as well be a back up.

In Topic: SE England/Essex photography training pool?

The place that you are thinking of is the Underwater Studio is Basildon. Steve Warren used to hire it out with his own reef etc. A word of warning though, it is not cheap and without Steve you will probably need to bring reef.

You are far better finding a local private school that hires out their pool or joining a dive club that has a pool night.

The pool that I use in Surrey costs £23 ph which is probably less than 1/3 of the cost in Basildon.

There is also a technique where you reverse the strobes so that you are effectively firing them backwards. You then use the edge of the beam to light the subject, but not do not light the background.

I have just set up an instagram account that I am populating.



In Topic: What do do when cameras can't fly in the aircraft cabin

Nothing says expensive camera equipment quite like a peli case. A few years back they were quite popular but there were some parts of the world where they were almost guaranteed to go missing. Most travel insurance limits individual items to ridiculously low value, so unless you have specific camera insurance, a peli case is just not worth the risk IMHO.


What I have just done is to buy a normal looking hard shell suitcase and some meduim density foam. The plan is to have something akin to a peli case but lighter and indistinguishable from normal luggage.
