  1. If you can shoot in raw, then I recommend that you do so. Then you can white balance later in Lightroom.


    Here is forbidden knowledge. You can shoot using a strobe and a filter. (I wouldn't do this for macro, but I would for close focus-wide angle shots) Just desaturate orange in Lightroom. Remember, I didn't tell you this :)

  2. 4200 NIMH tenergy batteries from batteryjunction have too too large of a diameter to work. They are .92 inches in diameter.


    You need .87 inch diameter batteries.


    .87 inch diameter NIMH batteries are hard to find. Anybody have a source?




    3800 NIMH batteries from batteryjucntion are listed as same diameter as the 4200 NIMH batteries.

  3. Thanks James, this image is completely underwater right side up as you see it, I use an acrylic platform that I can raise and lower.

    Gets me to wondering, does the mystery go out of the images if one explains how they are done? :lol:


    Your images are incredible, and having you explain them does not detract from the awe.

    Oops, duplicate post.

  6. Thanks for the replies. I guess the Nikon D90 makes more sense. The D300s is way too expensive for me.


    But, now I am am tempted by the Canon 550/T2i. I have some basic Nikon gear, but not so much that I can't be tempted by Canon.
