Hello from Kona Hawaii...I'm an unemployed divemaster do to covid. Luckily we are still able to access the ocean so we are still diving a few times a week but sadly commercial work is not allowed at least until June 1.

In the meantime I'm trying to put together an lighting system for my Olympus t6 that will get the job done and is more focused on macro and reflects my current employment status...I'm trying to get the most bang for my buck that I can and source all my parts and pieces at the best price that I can.

 

Thanks for having me. I'm new to undwerwater photography and hope to learn a lot here.

 

This is my flickr link. You can see what diving in Kona looks like if you haven't been here before.

Well hello there!

My name is Emil, and i am a diver, aspiring marine biologist and all around underwater nerd from the cold reaches of Sweden, more exactly the Swedish west coast. I have held a passion for the sea for as long as i can remember and the creatures in it. I love dealing with species identification from photographs, though i only deal with nordic species so far.

I usually do macro photography, though i am still new to underwater photography, with a compact camera (TG-5). And want to show that, even if coral reefs and warm waters are nice and all, there is many pretty animals in the less popular, colder waters further north worth seeing and maybe protecting.

When not diving, i enjoy video games, reading fantasy (sometimes other genres as well) and cooking.

 

So that is all for now

 

Emil :)

Hi Everyone,

I am a photography enthusiast based in the Philippines. I love taking nature pictures and animal behavior both above and below the water. The kick I get out of it is the thrill of the hunt to get that perfect shot -- the more challenging the shot the better. I would typically spend 2-3 days out in the field finding, observing and photographing a specific animal or location.

I am looking to seek advice with photography underwater.

Cheers,

Aaron

Hi my name is Brett Walker and I live in Sacramento, California,  I originally joined WetPixel back in 2012, but my profile says 2018 probably because that's when I updated to a new email address.  I have enjoyed shooting underwater images since my 10th dive and getting lessons from a photo pro on an Kona Aggressor Liveaboard trip in Hawaii. That was 1995 when Backscatter Photo was still located at the Monterey Breakwater parking lot. I have purchased many different camera systems over the years from them and other UW Photo stores.I became a PADI instructor in 2000, have won both national and international photo competitions and was even an underwater shooter for a Independant  Dive Travel show that aired on PBS.  More of a recreational diver and shooter now and belong to several dive clubs and organizations.  WetPixel has been a great source of information since I first joined and a great classifieds section that I have both purchased and sold equipment on as I upgraded my systems from my first Nikonos IV back in 1995. 

Looking forward to more dive trips even in these challenging times!

Hi all!

Greetings from The Netherlands. I've been diving (and taking pictures) for several years now.

Camera usually stays home when diving domestically; visibility is often too poor for pictures. Looking for more info/tips & tricks, especially on strobes as I feel a bigger strobe (currently use a single S2000 with my Oly pen-3) could be the next significant upgrade.

Hi there.  Another Australian, however living in Singapore.  I was referred to this group by a friend and am looking forward to learning and sharing.  I started diving a little over 2 years ago.  I've been an avid hobbyist landscape and travel photographer, and love the marine world - so it's only logical for me - bring the two together.

 

Looking forward to meeting you
