Hi everyone and greetings from Finland!

 

My name is Juuso and I have dived few years, but just last year I started to do underwater photography too. I'm very excited and have been reading a lot of forums. I hope I can now start take part in some discussions too.

Hi all,

 

I'm primarily a cold water diver in Seattle but enjoy forays to warmer climes and bluer water.

 

I've just taken the plunge and bought my first DSLR after years of happily shooting the Canon G10. I bought a 7D and just ordered the Aquatica housing.

 

I'm gearing up for an 11-day trip to Curacao and Bonaire (I've been to the latter before, once) - it'll be my first time in the water with the new rig!

 

Glad to have this forum to answer some of my numerous questions... I'd be surprised if I don't have to log in often during my vacation.

 

-Ann

Hello Everyone,I am a scuba instructor with some basic UW photo experience in the last ten years. I just upgraded to a Canon 5D MK III, and I anticipate doing more and more imaging now both topside and under water. Looking forward to learning from everyone here. Best wishes for safe diving and great pics.Ed

Hi

 

I am Paul, based in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Been doing underwater photography for a couple of years with compacts.

 

Just got a Hugyfot housing for my D7000, along with all the toys, courtesy of Andy Fenn, at Blue Orb/Hugyfot UK.

 

Just need some time over the next few weeks to get out diving and try my new kit out. Will provide an update as I progress.

 

Paul.

Hello from Vancouver,

 

I started diving when I was 14, I am now "older" and my body says "no more." Huge bummer. So here I am trying to sell my beloved camera equipment and I am finding out that perhaps it has become a bit of a boat anchor as it is all film based.

 

Does anybody out there purchase Nikonos's and film based housings? I have Ikelite strobes and strobe arms coming out my ying yang (can you say that on here?). Any how as I reconnect with the diving community, after a lengthy break I am reminded of why I liked diving so much. Divers are just good people, enthusiastic and fun.

 

Cheers

Hey all,

 

Bought a point n' shoot, took it onto a few UK dive trips and fell in love with underwater photography! So here I am, looking to upgrade my current system.

Hello to all. Just joined Wetpixel on the recommendation of someone we met on a recent trip to Utila. I've been diving for several years, and have been an avid amateur photographer since high school - many many moons ago. Got into UW photography 2 years ago, using a Sealife DC1000. I've done enough with it now that I've decided it's time to move up. I'll be converting my D700 to my UW camera, and will be getting the Nauticam housing. Principal lens will be the Nikkor 14-24 F2.8. Looking forward to many more years of taking only pictures and leaving only bubbles.

Aloha from Oahu, Hawaii! My name is Jeremy and I have been shooting UW video off and on for about a year as a freediver. I am now looking to move in a different direction with my gear and will probably shoot stills only. This forum was recommended to me by the folks at Backscatter and I'm looking forward to learning much more from what I can already see is a wealth of information here.

Hi, I'm relatively new to underwater photography, starting taking photos in November 2011 and adding in dual strobes in January 2012.

 

I have a Canon Powershot S95 with an Ikelite housing and two Sea&Sea YS-01 strobes, with a set of arms and platform bought from Optical Ocean Sales.

Hey all !

 

Finally posting on the forums after having used them so many times and digging so much useful tips and help over time.

 

I'm a marine biologist / instructor and have been lucky enough to see & work in some of the nicest coral reef environments in the world.

 

I am currently between jobs and just bumming around SE Asia. A couple of weeks in Raja Ampat, another couple of weeks in Sipadan, and already considering a trip back to RA, which blew my mind for ever !

 

I also just finished setting up my 1st photo website which i'm posting in the 'photo galleries' forum, have a look !

 

Thanks for the support & best fishes !!

 

H.

Kitchens Sale Leeds

 

 

 

We have Tons of kitchen shops and kitchen manufactures in Leeds. www.ex-display-kitchens.co.uk is by far the cheapest hence the name I suppose. Not quite Leeds but just on the border near Halifax I think. Looked on the internet for a kitchen for sale in Leeds and got three local companies round to give me a price and two from down south. The local companies were half the price of the guys down south. So if you're looking for a kitchen for sale in Leeds then my advice is shop local.
