I'm Mathieu Cornillon, living in the South of France, in Toulouse
I've been practicing UW photography almost since my very first beginnings in diving almost 15 years ago, but I really got more in the practice 3 years ago, when switching to an SLR configuration which was quite more demanding in terms of knowledge and practice
My configuration : a 2nd hand Nikon D90 in an Ikelite housing, with the 3 "classic" lenses : 10-17, 60 & 105mm, + 2 old school Nikonos SB-105
My hobbies related to diving : I like DIY, trying to find optimal configurations, and even designing accessories for my gear using 3D printing.
I'm coming to Wetpixel forum after having viewed countless hours of videos on Youtube on the subject, including those from the official Wetpixel channel (congrats Adam & Alex)
My favorite successful shot : a pair of "Spot-fin porcupinefish" that came right in front of my dome for a selfie during a snorkel session on my last "no fly" day in Red Sea before coming back home --> image
What I'm looking for in the short term on this forum : opportunities to make evolve my configuration with tips & tricks, or even affordable 2nd hand items (I really would like to upgrade my config by replacing my Ikelite D90 housing with an Ikelite D7000 housing to fit the D7000 I already have, keeping compatibility with all my other accessories)
Happy to be here, waiting to discuss with you !
