I'm getting there...

Recommended Posts

Hi there,


I've been lurking and reading on here for a while, and I finally have the nerve to post some of my shots to share. I upgraded from a 5060 Oly P&S to a Canon 450d in an Ikelite housing with 8" dome late last year and I must say there is a little more to this DSLR thing than I thought. Lots to think about but I have learnt one thing. Do not take a brand new camera and housing away on holiday and try to learn how to use it there.


I was using the 18-55mm lens I got with the camera for a couple of weeks in Fiji and then got myself a 17-70mm back here in Oz. Check out a few of my shots. I'm really new at all this SLR stuff so any comments would be appreciated.



This was under Mornington pier without a working strobe (it's been back to Ikelite for some repairs, I get it back soon).


This was a tiny tiny mollusc my wife Helen found on our 1st 17-70mm dive. I think she was out to test me and the new lens' capability to get small things in focus.


A very cool Fiji phyllidia nudi. I'm really happy with this one because after like 12 dives I finally got the hang of how to use the autofocus properly not just guessing.


My 2nd favourite shot from our shark dives in Beqa.


My favourite shot from our shark dives. He swam right up to us.


And finally what's a Fiji trip without a blue ribbon eel.


I have a bunch of other stuff at http://www.flickr.com/photos/seahorse_photography/ if you are interested.

Hope you liked them. I'll try and post some more local stuff real soon.

Hi Brad,

Good start. My main comment is get closer, mostly much closer to your subject. That alone will make a huge difference.
