  1. @ChrisRoss Thanks a ton for that link it really helped. The single thing that makes the most sense for this technique is "point the strobes at your ears". Thanks to everyone else for their input as well.
  2. Hmmm, not in my edition. That's the start of Chapter 2. maybe he ment page 122. Yeah I have looked at that photo a bunch but I cant seem to grasp where the light cone is pointing. Im guessing the subject side of the light cone is just kissing the subject and the rest of the light cone is pointed backwards at the photographer? eehh oh well it doesnt make sense to me.
  3. Hey all, I am reading through "Underwater Photography Masterclass" some of you might have heard of it. I am reading through the wide angle chapter and it mentions inward lighting, I am kind of confused by this technique. Is there a simple sketch that depicts the beam angle for strobes in this configuration. I think a simple diagram would be really valuable for the reader for the various lighting configurations and should be included in the next edition of the book.
  4. Why are you selling? Do you have focus ring for this as well?
  5. Oh yeah, I am really looking forward to getting my new kit underwater and learning with it. My Wife took the credit cards away from me during the black friday sales last week, I bought a whole new camera system.
  6. Amazing photo. Thank you for sharing. I just got two of the Backscatter Mini Flash 1 (each with a snoot). I was wondering if I had made a mistake by getting two snoots. It seems my only limitation is going to be my imagination. I'm going to pair the the Mini Flashes with my Olympus PEN E-PL10 and 60mm macro, I also have a 8mm fisheye. If you are interested in taking a newer UW photographer under your wing let me know, im always looking for a mentor and diving buddies.
  7. I'm trying to think of a scenario where I would want to use two strobes each with snoots. Thanks for the taking the time to read and respond.
  8. I might be interested in the YSD2 strobes. I just bought a new Olympus camera kit.
  9. Ive read about the 70's in history books ;-), jk. I think I'm in the major minority during the pandemic I got a new job with a 25% pay increase. This has enabled me to support my local diving community: Freediving level 1, EFR, AED & CPR, deep diver, dry suit diver (and drysuit), I've also built up a new UW camera rig. Im hoping the local Southern California USA industry stays strong and local beach diving doesn't get too trashed. I really need to get out to a few more local beach dive sites, Orange County or LA County anyone?
  10. Hey all, I just ordered the AOI UH-EPL10 (AOI's housing for the Olympus E-PL10 from Backscatter) I am wondering how to tell what ports are compatible with the housing? I've been quotes a 4" (DPL-06) dome port but for split shots I'm told bigger is better, but AOI doesn't seem to sell a 8in port that will fit my housing. Any ideas on how to find a different port to fit my housing?
  11. I have been using a Watson Duo Charger for the last few years. it has the changable plates available for $2.00 (USD) each. I can charge all 3 of my camera batteries on it with the changeable plates, it can even charge two different types of batteries at the same time. The USB port lets me also charge my dive light at the same time.
  12. Hey all I will be placing an order or a fisheye and domeport in the near future. I am wondering if anyone has tips for practicing spilt shots locally (local as in not at the beach/ocean).
  13. Do you have a link to these neoprene bags? I have been looking for something similar for my UCL
  14. @TimG and @ChrisRoss I am very aware of the cost of the housing for the Sony A7III, unfortunately the housing is eating almost all of my budget. I mean I guess I could get the strobes now and then re-save up for the housing for my A7III. I'm just not a big fan of my RX100va any more. @bvanant, what was your dive site for this photo? I'm also a local SoCal diver, I've seen the Spanish Shawl at Shaw's Cove in Laguna Beach.
  15. Do you mind elaborating on what you mean by its restrictions. I've been keeping an eye on the classifieds section for the last week or so, fingers crossed to find something. I am currently working my way thorough Alex Mustard's book. Its really a great read. I'm hoping Backscatter will have a black Friday type sale and Ill be able to pick up something on a good sale.
