Having fun with a FE lens at night!

Recommended Posts

After work decided to go diving as the tyhpoon left us with very calm seas. The night was absolutely gorgeous! Faint but constant moonlight (didnt help with photos at 30+ meters though) to help us swim out from shore mixed with a wall that drops almost 100m makes for a great dive. I decided to try and see what the Tokina FE lens could do with my two little wimpy stobes and to generally just have fun. If anyone has some pointers on WA night photos, please tell me!!!

 

The basket stars love the current at the depths.

The Tokina FE takes closeup WA fairly well

Strobe lighting is difficult

The photos are JPEGs straight from the SD card and have not been processed in any way.

Thanks for sharing, I like the arch shots. I have no pointers, but you've got me interested - I like the effect of isolating a WA subject against a black background, similar to macro w/ small aperture.

I am not sure just yet how to best use this lens but it was alot of fun at night. I think what I like the most about it at night is that the images are probably the closest to what I actually see at night while carrying a light. Daytime photos are obviously better illuminated but a range of differences exist from the curvature that develops in the picture to the differences in actual illumination from what the eye truly sees.
