Greetings folks !!

 

I'm Gary Miyakawa (with Cary Bennett) from Roswell Ga. She is very much into itty bitty things (Nudis) and we spend time running around BHB when possible.

 

I'm a bit of a creative person and have built two sets of lights for her (and mounts). Not willing to spend the $$$ for a "standard" light set, I've built based on LED waterproof panels. We've had good luck with them and are now going after flexible arms for new lights. (some of the White/Red/Blue).

 

I built buoyant arms and ever custom built flexible arms using the LocLine material (and figured out how to modify them).

 

I used to own a Hobby Shop, does it show? :) :)

 

Anyway, look forward to reading the DIY stuff out here and learning and trying to help Cary get her Kritters.

 

Cheers,

Gary Miyakawa

Hi,

I am Hannes, diver from South Africa living in the Middle East. Learning the trade more with every dive, a little at a time and love photography of the small and unseen, they make the best subjects those shy little critters.

Hi I am somewhat frequent diver, less than I would like, but more opportunities than a lot of folks who live in the North East like I do. I am a somewhat accomplished photographer, but have never photographed underwater and am looking for a place to learn/get advice/ask questions.

Hello Everyone

 

I just joined this morning but have been following Wetpixel since it's beginnings. Began my underwater photography journey with a Nikonos and extension tubes. Worked my way up to a Nikon F4 in Subal housings. I entered the digital age for my underwater photography when Canon released the original 5D full frame SLR which I housed in Sea&Sea housings.

 

And now... I'm currently in the process of switching over to the Sony full frame mirrorless system in Nauticam housings. I have a big learning curve in front of me before next big trip which will be to Socorro in April.

 

Mike

I have been a lurker for some time.

I have upgraded my camera gear and I am here to see if there is any interest in my old gear. It is dated, but maybe someone has invested

in a housing and would like a back up camera that fits it.

 

I am in Seattle, but I dive warm water.

I have dived in

Bali

Andaman Sea

Red Sea

Gulf of California

Bonaire (multiple times)

Bay Island, Honduras

Belize

I am probably forgetting somewhere else...

 

Cheers

I've been a scuba diver since 91. Used a variety of underwater cameras, including the Nikonos V. Currently using the Sony A6000 in a Nauticam housing. Looking to sell the ports necessary to use the Sony 90 macro. I never dove with it. Aloha!

Hi Everyone -

 

New to the forum - long time diver. Used to shoot a D100 in a Sea & Sea housing...but last several years was using a gopro. Was looking into some used equipment, and saw classifieds...but read about all the scammers and decided maybe not.

 

Here is a short video I just did a month or so ago about turtle poaching in the sea of cortez.
