  17. I have been a photographer for quite a while and absolutely love the water. I want to get into diving. I would be starting from the bottom and would need to start working on my diving certifications. Where do I start? What do you recommend? I know I have a long way to go before I can actually start shooting underwater, but I would like to start heading in that direction and get comfortable in the water before making underwater equipment purchases.

The boy finds work in another boat a result of his affection of the sea. The boy learns diving from the cripple Omer, a famous diver working on that boat whom was healthy without a bend then. Time passes the cripple and the boy ends up working on the captain’s boat. There is sponge shortage, dives passes no sponge! Crew is upset and there is frustration among the crew. The tension between the trilogy (captain, the boy & the cripple), drives the viewer into a desolation in the middle of the sea and its bottom.

  20. I know I can't be the only one with the following challenge Been diving with a camera & housing (one form or another) for the last 15+ years, and outside of diving at places like Wakatobi, Lembeh, etc. (with a camera room close to dock) or on a live-aboard I'm still looking for the best way to carry a fully put together housing (currently for a D7100) & arms from hotel room to boat, many times with a significant walk/transit in between. Example: On the plane to the Big Island (HI) right now (WiFi at 30k feet & WetPixel to help pass the time) for a week of diving with the family. As we usually do, staying in a resort, diving 25+ min away down near Kona or up near Puako. I'll put together my camera gear the night before, and then end up carrying it from the room to the car, then from the car to the boat (along w/the rest of our dive gear). I've been on an unending search for a backpack wide & tall enough to comfortably carry the housing (preferably w/the arms collapsed (but attached). The best I ever found was actually a free backpack from the old Microsoft PDC developer conferences (got one at one at the conference, then started buying them on eBay as they wore out, which was fairly quickly given the environment). After I couldn't find any more of these, I switched to an Akona backpack that was slightly narrower (very tight fit, but was a little more ruggedized (material was resistant to salt water, heavy duty zipper, small waterproof compartment). On my 2nd one of these backpacks now, so thinking about what's next when this one wears out (it's a very tight squeeze [side to side] for the housing). This may only be an issue for those of us who still occasionally tolerate multi-dive day boats (most have limited capacity to carry on larger camera bags), but I've found myself even wanting this during longer excursions off of liveaboards (last year in Raja Ampat we did a 3 dive long range trip with 1 being a shore dive - wanted to carry some gear & my camera in a way that kept it out of the sand). Both hands end up being for dive gear, so really like the option of carrying the rig on my back (also have a wife and 13 year old daughter diving so I seem to be carrying more gear than before - even though they do claim they carry their own gear). So I'm looking for ideas, or better yet, a recommendation for some mythical backpack-like, rugged, salt-tolerating bag big enough to comfortably carry a full housing (and a few odds n ends). Does such a beast exist? - Matt
  21. Hello My name is Jimmy and I am a complete beginner in the field of ("more serious") underwater photography. Underwater photography is something I have felt passionate about to get into for years and years since I'm a freelancing and devoted filmmaker as well as still photographer. I love shooting wildlife and highest on my list has always been to evolve into underwater photography mixing my love for the ocean and its species with my love for photography. I've finally made investments in Ikelite housing and strobes for a Nikon D7100. Currently not living in a very diving friendly part of the world and I only have approx 15 dives under my belt since I took my PADI open water certificate in 2009. My goal from the beginning when started diving is to mix it with photography but understood the necessity of becoming a comfortable diver before moving attempting to shoot underwater. After having now dived in Fiji, Thailand, Tanzania and Cuba I can no longer resist the urge to have a camera with me beneath the waves on my next trip now to the eastern caribbean (where I'm partially from). I am curious to ask advice from the more experienced divers and underwater photographers if more dives are strongly recommended before adding the complexity of photographing as well or if it should be fine as long as I feel up to the challenge? As a person and freelancer I am very active in safety measures for productions and generally have a great respect and understanding for the ocean as I have grown up partially in the tropics. Dive instructors have commented that I'm relaxed underwater and do well. Among my 15 dives I have had dives with Bullsharks and dived through short rock/cave formations which have all been fine. Hopefully this weighs in my favour but it's still difficult to guess how technically tricky the diving will become when adding the photography aspect...

  24. Hi, I'm excited to share with you a feature story we've been working on with CBS for a while. Some positive press in the cave diving community. Weeki Wachee Springs is Florida's oldest roadside attraction and home of the mermaids. Its also one of the deepest cave systems in the United States at over 407 feet deep! A highly experienced team of Explorers are pushing the limits of technology in order to go deeper, stay longer, and explore this never before seen cave. The entrance and exit is extremely challenging making it difficult to bring in safety equipment. The window of opportunity to dive only opens for a few months every decade. This highly experienced team must collect all of the scientific data, gather samples and map the system before mother nature decides to render the cave undivable again for a year or the next 10. To view the story on CBS follow the link! It will air again at 5:30 today February 14th and Feb 15th at noon.
