  5. Greetings All, The time has come to part with my Seacam housing upgraded for use with the 1D Mark IV. The claw for the 1D/Ds Mark III is included if you need to change it out. This has not been in the water since it was upgraded by Stephen Frink. Asking price is $5,000 and includes the housing only. Price includes insured ground shipping anywhere in the US. Buyers outside the US will need pay for shipping. A few pictures are attached. IM me if you've got any questions.
  6. I was watching Eric Johansson's TED talk tonight, and he hits on an intersting concept at about 1 min, 40 sec: ...it's about capturing an idea, not a moment... For me, a great photo captures an idea IN the moment. Sometimes, an idea needs help reaching full expression. http://www.ted.com/talks/erik_johansson_im...hotography.html
  7. Fun article: http://www.aphotoeditor.com/2012/03/06/mic...hark-portraits/
  8. Interesting images: http://www.wired.com/rawfile/2012/03/under...-into-traction/ Some are kind of scary looking. Disregard. I see I'm late to this party already.
  9. I have a friend who runs a very successful Graphic Design firm and he always tells me, "Good art evokes emotion." For me, the images I consider "best" are the ones that trigger an emotional response, good or bad. Immediate images that come to mind are Alex's Bohar Snapper, Eric Cheng's "Screaming Turtle" and Jeff's recent winning image "Fire in the Water". Personally, I don't care how you get to where you get as long as you are honest about how you got there. One of the reasons I enjoy taking a class from Alex or attending a class with Jeff is because they are always pushing the boundaries in search of THE image. I think I have probably taken three or four truly great images and each of these came after an iterative process where there was more error than success. However, when you finally GET the image, whether in camera or after several rounds of post, and you cannot stop but say, "Wow", then you know you are onto something. These would be my guidelines: 1. Strive to get the best possible image in camera. Sometimes lipstick on a pig is just lipstick on a pig. 2. Work the image in post. 3. Be honest in telling how the result was achieved. Though I'm not quite the ninja some of the wetpixelers are, the reward for me is in the journey. As always, Alex, thanks for stretching the boundaries of the craft. Basim
  10. You really are a Ninja, Jeff!
  11. Michael Reichmann and Jeff Schewe have an excellent tutorial at the Luminous Landscape for Lightroom 3. I also recommend the Digital Asset Managment Guide at Luminous Landscape with Michael Reichmann and Seth Resnick. Jeff Schewe is a alpha/beta tester for both Photoshop and Lightroom. He's forgotten more PS/LR stuff than I will ever remember. http://www.luminous-landscape.com/videos/lr3.shtml Oh, and everything everyone has said about CS4 for UW Photographers.
