Bonjour,

 

At the moment, I'm making this account to ask a very specific question that I cannot find an answer to, but I hope to continue to use the forums to ask questions to improve my work and camera practices.

 

I guess I can say that I've only been diving for seven years (since I could only get certified six years ago), and that I've been pulled into the world of underwater photography by my dad (who is far better than me).

 

Thanks for reading,

Alex

Hi!

My name is Scott Smith. I do freelance and work for Body Glove as their in house videographer and photographer. I love to surf, dive, and do pretty much anything in the ocean. I'm also an LACo Lifeguard, PADI MSDT, and lover of animals and a good time.

Excited to be a part of the community.

Hi everyone,

I'm a marine scientist working on coral reefs, and just starting to get really into underwater photography - joined this forum after being recommended by a friend. Hoping to find some good deals on underwater camera/housing combos (SLRs, preferably with Nauticam or Aquatica housing) , so feel free to message me if you think what you're selling might interest me!

Cheers,

Nick

Hello. I am from Toronto, Canada. I have some experience in UW macro videography through attending an UW Macro Videography Workshop in Lembeh, Indonesia, but I would like to do more wide angle videography.

I was trying to find some unbiased information about video lighting and had very difficult time until I came across this forum. I hope to get a lot of useful information and share my experience through this site.

Hi,

 

I'm new to UW photography. I have a broad experience in diving up to Trimix Rebreather level and a lot of experience with normal photography. Now the challenge is to combine both and get good results (I already noticed how steep the challenge is :-) )

 

Regards,

Daniel

Hi

 

I'm James Laver from Swindon, UK. I've been diving for 40 years - rebreathers for the last 17 - still alive and loving it. I began shooting UW 35mm stills in Oman with a Uwe Kiehl housing and ringflash. More recently I've moved towards video now that the technology provides the ease of use and quality. Having LED TVs makes it worthwhile too!! I dive an AP Inspiration Evo rebreather and am qualified to BSAC AI (1719) and TDI Mod II trimix on the RB. One of my photos is on the cover of BSAC's Manual for the Inspiration rebreather. My most memorable dives have been the Dahab blue hole with 7 other RBs on trimix as well as Thomas Canyon. My most recent diving was in Gozo in March/April 2017. I film using a GH5 in a Nauticam housing with the Olympus 7-12mm Zuiko. I do a lot of solo shore diving and use a Bonex Reference RS to pull me around safely.

 

In case anyones in any doubt - diving a rebreather is a great advantage when filming underwater. I've had Dolphins sonar beam me knowing that something was different. I'm forever getting closer to sea life than is possible with open circuit. Its why Howard Hall dives a BioMarine MK15.5 (one of the classics).

 

Upfront thanks to all the esteemed forum members who have contributed to it and who are the foundation of an ever burgeoning community that I hope will help to preserve our Oceans.

 

Cheers to all,

 

James

Hey everyone,

Ben from Tampa, FL here. I am a long time diver, started with SCUBA but now mostly freedive. Got into what I would consider "serious" photography about a year ago. I dive the gulf and springs in north florida quite a bit, but now that I'm looking to shoot images I'd like to get over the East Coast, Keys, and travel a lot more often. Looking forward to meeting some U/W shooters and learning a thing or two.

Cheers

Hell, I'm Charles from Tokyo. I've started diving within the last year and have done a little over 30 dives now. Done some video with my GoPro, but looking for some advice to up my game a little bit. Some lights for the GoPro and maybe a compact camera some point in the future. Looking to get some advice on products.

Hi, I'm from England, currently studying engineering at university, but have been taking photos underwater for about 8 years. I'm sure I have an account here, but can't for the life of me remember my username or email.. so here's a new one! I use a nikon D7100, and prefer my Tokina 10-17 lens. Sometimes do a bit of macro, but where i usually dive in the red sea, isnt the best for macro subjects.
