  1. What does a dry suit have to do with photography? It's like asking, How can you drive and wear Cashmere at the same time?
  2. I watched the Nat Geo channel yesterday, saw a show called "Capturing the Deep." Couldn't believe what I saw, over and over: -dive photographers constantly lying on coral (not sand) to get their shots -dive photographers standing on coral (not sand) to get their shots -dive photographers holding onto coral (not rock) to steady themselves for their shots One diver was trying to get photos of a circling shark. He was lying in coral and rolling all around to get his shots. Unbelievable. National Geographic gives dive photographers a very bad name.
  3. I am going to be dead soon. I don't need to rationalize, I just do it. By "dead soon" I mean "soon" in geologic time... Some people say, "He who dies with the most toys wins." I say, "He who dies with the most toys, and in the most debt, wins."
  4. So why am I having to shoot at such a high ISO and low speed/wide-open aperature? If I shot at f/6.3, ISO 320 and 1/125, the histogram would be shifted far, far left.
  5. What exposure settings are you using for cave diving photographs? I found that I was having to shoot at ISO 600, 1/60 sec, f/3.5 and strobes on manual/full power. Nikon d300s Inon-Z240 strobes (two) at full power No remote slave - yet Tokina 10-17mm I was unhappy with shooting at 1/60 and f/3.5, either too much blur or not enough depth of field. What exposure settings are you using? Do I need to shoot at a faster ISO, or do I need to drop more cash on some slave strobes?
  6. A genius and visionary, Plato once wrote in 345 B.C.: Αποτελέσματα αναζήτησης για δεν βρέθηκαν αποτελέσματα Παρακαλώ δοκιμάστε πάλι ("A man cannot have too much underwater photography equipment.")
  7. I love the scene that you described at the Manila transfer desk. I'm always amazed that no one ever seems to know how to do something that they've probably had to do hundreds of times before I showed up.
  8. I don't consider the Fisheye LED500 to be that great. Seems that they are selling a lot of lemons. Many of them don't seem to work properly right out of the box. I am one of the many who had to send the light back for warranty repair right after I bought it.
  9. I received my new toys today... Unpacked the box and assembled everything... New Nikon... Nauticam housing... Inon strobes... Focus light... viewfinder... My goodness, what have I gotten myself into? Be careful what you wish for, you may actually get it!
  10. Okay, thanks for all of the valuable input. I've got a Nikon D300s, a Nauticam housing (with a viewfinder) and a 60mm lens heading my way. I've already got two Inon Z240 strobes and Ultralight arms. Intriguing possibility, combining photography and hookers... Maybe I'll start a website... (:
