  1. A few more photos Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Thanks. I had a typo. I’m using WWL-1B. I’m using manual setting on Z330s. TTL never works well for me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Here is another stone fish where there are more angle to play with. I took as low as I could and try to avoid the little rock behind. I adjusted the light up pointing down but the fish is still not isolated enough. How would you have taken this shot? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Great feedbacks thank you. Idk a good way to isolate the stone fish. They camouflage so well into the bg and I did not have any good angle to get them into the blue or different color. I’ll play with Depth of Field next time. The eel is not a good shot but i found it is funny to share since it touched my lens and i quickly snapped it. I’m still learning to get the subject isolation and composition to make the photos pop after getting the basic of lighting. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Sharing some shots I took yesterday. Looking for feedbacks on how to improve. I shot with Sony A7C WWL-1C 2 inon z330. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. I dived with both of the shops. Highly recommend Maui Dream. You will actually dive with Maui Diamond the boat company. They are owned by husband and wife. Ask for Laurel as your DM, she can points out tiny little Nudis. They are the best shop in Maui hands down. Molokini is not bad for macro. I saw a bunch of nudis including blue dragons, some lobster, cleaner shimps. Occasionally you see large creatures like ray or shark or even Whale shark from what I heard. However, I’d recommend Lanai Cathedral site more. The lava cave was stunning with abundant marine life. For Oahu, lower your expectations. Water visibility is not as clear as maui. Wreck dives are better than drift dives which can be very murky. Dive Oahu offers nice boat, modern gears but they have mixed discovery and licensed group. They kinda rush the group back to the line so good luck with macro. I’d recommend Reef Pirate on the east side, they go to Corsair often and can take you to better 2nd site like Sea Cave. Their boat is smaller but they take 6 max, often more advanced divers. Hope that helps. Had fun. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I have a Sony A7C with kit lens and Nauticam CMC1. I can take some nice macro with this setup like this one However, the working range is very limited. I often found myself not able to get close enough to the subject because of the rocks or corals will block my camera going further. I also have a SEL90mm lens. I’d need to shell out a new port for it. Would it give me better working range and flexibility? How is the photo quality compared to the kit lens with Diopter? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Is it a cushion sea star? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Thank you! Yes it was with the A7C kit lens + CMC-1 Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. Definitely being closer to the subject is key too. Thanks to you guys I dont feel too frustrated looking at my photos after the dives lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. What do you guys think of the after edit photos? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. You guys are spot on. I changed to 1/125 or 1/160 the problem went away Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. So after multiple trial and errors, I found a good strobe position for me. That is to have both strobes behind the handles and pointing straight instead of slightly outward. Many photos from my last dive came out pretty good (compared to my previous photos) without any edits. Below are some samples with mostly just auto edit button in LR. I’d recommend to try out this strobes position if anyone is facing the same issue as I was. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. Thank you! I’m pretty happy with my first blackwater macro photo. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
