Hello !

 

My name is Greg, I am new in underwater photography. I am curently shooting in artificial waters and with a waterproof compact (nikon AW100) but I am looking forward to buy an underwater housing for my canon EOS 5DmkII and go to the wild wild blue.

 

I am more interested in underwater people than underwater fauna and flora, but I really like to shot underwater.

 

I am from Belgium.

Newly registered member here. I've been lurking for a while, but finally decided to register (thanks for the push Focker). I'm getting ready to leave for Coco View Resort on Roatan - fourth trip there - in nine days. I'll be shooting my new Canon Vixia HF-S30 in a Light and Motion Bluefin with two Sola 500 lights. I'd rather have gotten some larger lights, and may upgrade in the future depending on what I see from this trip, but I got a great deal on the lights from Backscatter as a trade-in on my old system. Anyway, that's enough about me for now, but I'd really like to thank everyone for the great posts that I've been reading here while I've been lurking. This is a great community, and its nice to be a part of it.

Hi, Les Sharp from Bondi in Sydney, Australia. I am at the older end of the scale at 72, and a dedicated photographer out of the water. I have done some diving, got to blue corner in Palau with a minder, but did not take any photos there. I do have an aquatech housing for a canon 1D which I have used as a pole camera to photograph the great white shark inspecting divers inside the cage in False bay Capetown. Haven't quite got the composition right yet, but will try again. So I thought I'll join this forum and get some advice.

Hello everyone. Fairly new diver from Orlando here. I've been doing photography above sea for about a decade now and I'm looking to get into it underwater as well. I have a Nikonos V currently, but had a problem with it and it flooded and I'm contemplating the jump to digital now.

Greetings from the Caribbean! I have looked into this forum in the past but have finally started taking my own underwater pictures, the thumbnail below was taken the day before yesterday at Ile Fourchue off St. Barths in the Caribbean; if you click on the link it will take you to my blog calendar and any day with an underwater themed thumbnail will contain dive photos. Bear with me, I'm still learning the appropriate dive technique and will use this forum and its members to learn how to use the equipment at my disposal (Ikelite housing for D7000 and DS160 strobe with a 35mm and 10-24 zoom lens with diopters for macro) to its fullest extent.

Hi Everyone!!

 

I'm brand new to WetPixel.com, and pretty much brand new as a photographer. I'm a dive instructor who's looking for a little 'more' out of my personal dives, so photography seems like a pretty rewarding challenge.

 

I just picked up a D7000, which I'm excited to splash with it soon!!

 

I really hope to learn a lot from everyone here!

 

Thanks!!

 

Annette Papa

Hello. New to wetpixel. Been shooting UW photo and video since my first dives just over three years ago. Recently stepped up to the big leagues though as I took the plunge and bought a housing (Aquatica) and strobes (Sea & Sea YS 110A) for my 5D MKII. Just back from my first trip with the new rig to Roatan and loving it. Saturday I'll be taking it under the ice so I will see if I can work all the controls with dry gloves. I'm loving it!

Hi, just joined today.

 

Been a photographer for a very long time, back when a professional camera was a medium or large format one. Been a scuba instructor almost as long. My first camera was an argus C3, My first Medium format camera was a C-330 (interchangeable dual lens), first large format was a speed graphic and my first digital was a Fuji.

 

Originally learned under Minor White and Ansel Adams and the zone system and over the years have done pretty much every type of photography.

 

Currently, I do most of my diving between Panama City and Pensacola Florida where diving tends to be a lot of the 3 "d's"... Deep, Dark and Dirty.

 

As such, most of my photography is portrait images of fish, which have been used by a variety of Universities, The smithsonian and just recently the next addition of Reef books.

 

I teach underwater photography, mostly with advanced point and shoot cameras, and take pictures with everything from a simple point and shoot to a panasonic GH-1.

Hi All,

 

Just joined up and very happy to do so. I've been diving for 39 of my 48 years and am a professional photographer topside, doing a lot of aerial work, but love to visually play underwater. Shooting a Canon T2i with a Nauticam housing after years with the point and shoots and it's a new blue planet. Love the Quarterly and level of expertise and involvement here.

 

More Soon

 

Mike Light/San Francisco
