Greetings From Fort Myers Fl!

I made the jump from Film to Digital. I spent some time over the last couple months figuring out cameras, housings, strobes etc. Did the pool tests, a couple of shallow dives in the Keys, results OK. I found some good info on this site during that process. Thanks. So, while I am trying new things, why not make my first attempt at participating in (on?) a forum. Off to Bonaire in a couple of weeks so there is no time to waste. lots to learn about the new media.

Howdy, all! I'm a 57 year old ER doc from Washington State. I've been diving six years, but only recently picked up a camera. I'm using an Olympus 6020 Stylus Tough (mainly because I flooded my first camera, a Dimage, and it did serious psychological damage) and hoping for some help in improving my technique with the camera.

Greetings from St Andrews, Scotland. I'm currently studying for a masters in Marine Mammal Science and started diving age 12 (11 years and still comfortably obsessed!). I was lucky enough to get hold of an Ikelite housing and DS-125 strobe for my Nikon D70 when a diving colleague upgraded. Unfortunately i've since been unable to afford anything more than the 18-70mm kit lens but hopefully that'll change once I escape the poverty of studentship!

Hi I'm Jonny, A Television Director from London and new to the world of underwater photography. We will be filming an underwater photography session in California on Saturday 30th July.

 

I would like to ask if anyone has any advice on where I would be able to Hire/Borrow underwater Housing for a Sony Alpha A55 camera to be used in our shoot? This would have to be from the San Diego area if possible.

 

And secondly, we are looking for a great underwater Photographer to give our pupil a short lesson (on land) and then take them snorkelling to take some pictures. Does this sound like something any of you in the California area would be interested in?

 

Many thanks for taking the time to read this, any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Hi, I'm Wes Walker from New Orleans originally but I currently live in Newport Beach, CA. I'm new to underwater photography and diving. I thought since I live this close to the ocean I should start acting on my interests in diving and photography. If there are any beginner tips for diving and especially photography in Newport Beach I would greatly appreciate it.

Do you know anything about the Duke Marine Lab in Bermuda? My girlfriend is interested in studying marine biology there and I was wondering if you know how reputable it is internationally or anyone that has studied there.

I am new to wetpixel and would like to introduce myself.

 

I'm an avid snorkeler and certified diver who loves to travel. Exotic dive and snorkel destinations are my passion. I began photographing sea life about 3 years ago, and I have quickly become addicted.

 

I've joined wetpixel so I can learn from the best. The members here seem to be very helpful, and I look forward to becoming part of the community.

Hi from the Baltimore, MD, USA area!

 

I joined WetPixel a while back but haven't really gotten serious about diving and photography until recently.

 

I'm almost up to 100 dives and thousands of very mediocre uw photos. I think I've maxed out my powershot/canon housing/no strobe setup and I'm looking to go to the next level. So I'll be doing lots of reading and research.

 

Here is the gallery from my latest trip in June to Cozumel:

Hello all,

 

I'm an UK diver, been interested in photography for a while and finally bought my first UW camera system (S95 with Ikelite housing) less than a year ago. Unfortunately I just had an issue with it and lost a camera to flooding... :dance: Now I'm feeling a bit scared of it happening again, and a friend recommended I join this forum to get some help!

 

Cheers

Elena

Hi, I have been dabbling in underwater photography for a couple of years with a compact and after attending a photography course have decided to take it more seriously and move to an SLR. Which has opened up a whole new world of kit, accessories, techniques etc. A daunting prospect.

 

However, I was advised to join Webpixel as a way to help with the transition process and to hopefully learn some techniques and pick up some useful information.

 

Looking forward to being a part of Webpixel.

Hullo. Name is Courtney. Spent a year or so as an underwater photographer in Grand Cayman. Now I'm planning to move back to the Caribbean and am looking for new gear!
