Brian... getting back into underwater photography. Started with a point and shoot, then to DSLR with Canon 20D, then back to point and shoot with Nikon AW130. All mostly on auto, shitty photos for most part. Decided to get more serious. Been reading a lot and getting better with shooting on land. Decided to go back to DSLR underwater and went deep with Canon 80D, Ikelite housing, 8" dome port, port extension, 2 DS160 strobes, 2 Orcatorch D910v lights, Kraken focus light, Sigma 17-70, Tokina 10-17, Kenko 1.4 TC, Keldan Spectrum filter for Sigma and magic filter for tokina, arms, floats, etc.....

Hi all, I’m a Padi Rescue diver with 250 dives and been doing scuba photog since  2004 but had a long break and only recently updated my rig. I now use a compact LX10 based system and  upgrading my wide angle. Wondering if anyone has any views on preference between Inon UWL-H100+Dome or AOI UWL-09? In particular on sharpness, flexibility of zoom thru while maintaining that focus and dome scratch resistance? Many thanks. Alex

Hello all.  I've been diving for over 10 years, mostly in the Caribbean. I had one dive trip Pucket before the Tsunami where the soft corals were amazing. My favorite was a week-long dive aboard in the Red Sea, where the colors and sea live were stunning.

Hi all. I've been a diver for going on 10 years now, and an instructor/technical diver for the last 3. Tons of dives and water time off of the California coast, which is where I plan to do most of my shooting. Just caught the photo bug this last couple months. Currently shooting an A7RIII, with all the fixings. Kinda jumped in the deep end but loving every second of it. Look forwad to diving/shooting with you all.

Hi.  My name is David and I have been diving for ~10 years.  I started with a sealife camera and just moved up from that a couple of times.  Everytime I dive, I have a camera so on those rare occasions when I dont have it with me, I dont know what to do with my hands!  Interested in learning more on the topic and reading other's stories.

Hey there,

I have started underwater photography this year with a 1 month trip in Mozambique. First dives made me realize how different it is from surface photography!

I d be happy to share my progress and also read about equipment and techniques reviews.
