Hi new to this forum but been diving for over 25 years and shooting as an amatuer for many years.  Have done a bit of professional video work.  Work professionally as a diver in Japan running tours and operating a dive service in Okinawa.  Hope to learn much here.

Hey all,

I’m Ricky from the South side of Atlanta, Georgia, USA. I’ve been diving for 3 years now and am close to my 100th dive. I wasn’t into photography before learning to dive, but look forward to learning to use my G7x Mkiii to capture some of the cool things we encounter below!

Hi I use Subal for my digital photography and while not cheap it’s a great system. I suggest you buy the best camera you can to avoid changing housings too often. I use a Nikon D700 which is a professional standard camera and have had the associated Subal housing for over 12 years. Like you I also use Nikonos with film which I still think beats digital as you must think more.

cheers

Hi,

I'm a diver based in Costa Brava (Catalonia, Spain) and really interested in underwater photography. Now I'm very excited because I'm changing all my gear from a compact camera to a DSRL camera.

Joining Wetpixel to learn as much as possible from better uwphotographers!

My name is Anthony Fuccella and I live in San Jose, CA. I have learned underwater photography from trial and error as well as from youtube.com. I am always happy to teach what I know and learn from others. My underwater photography is done in pools and ranges anywhere from athletes swimming to senior portraits. I do a variety of photography above water as well but enjoy underwater the most. I currently use an Ikelite housing with a Canon 5d Mark iii. I look forward to spending more time in this forum learning from others.

Hi, 

Just joined wetpixel. Looking to get more involved with UW (underwater) photography.   Live in South Florida and looking for more shallow water shots but we'll see how it goes.  Currently have a Sony NEX-6 camera which I like.  This has a F1.8,  50 mm fixed lens.  I never liked the stock E-mount F3.5 - 5.6 18-55mm lens it was shipped with.  That couldn't outperform the average cell phone as it was always too dark.

Probably looking more for action shots in pools and shallow water rather than close up macro shots of sea cucumbers and plankton.

Just bought an Olympus Tough TG-5 camera but will return it as it looks too cheaply made to be viable underwater.  The battery hatch for one thing is thin plastic with two very thin little plastic hinges.  When they get tired I see no way of keeping water out of it.

On diving, have been diving off and on for many years but still only Padi OW.  Maybe I should get better certifications once the corona vaccine's out?  The pix is of me reef diving in Florida: taken by someone in the group I was in with just a simple point & shoot.

I’ve been doing freshwater and some salt water snorkeling in the Pacific Northwest for quite a while with a point and click. I am looking to upgrade to a much higher quality camera

I'm a diver from Southern California. I am just getting into photography after being a GoPro fan boy for the past 5 years. While it is a great way to get decent video footage, I am ready to take it to the next level. I'm currently shooting with a Sony RX100-VA with a Nauticam pro housing and working on building my camera system. I am mostly interested in wide angle shooting as I have a passion for wreck diving. But I am open to learning macro shooting as well.

Greetings from Lockdown in London.  I'm pretty sure I joined this community way back but have never had the time, until now, to actually participate in any discussions. That thing called work, you know, keeps getting in the way :) 

Well my name is Joss Woolf and I have been taking pictures since 2004.  I joined the British Society of Underwater Photographers  (of whose members' work I was utterly in awe) in the days when we were still shooting with film, and now I take quite an active part in its operation. I help to organize the speakers for our monthly meetings which used to take place at University College in South Kensington, London but, of course, are now online, having been unable to meet up in person since March. But this has proved to be quite successful, attracting far more people than were ever able to physically meet up in London.

I also help to produce a glossy magazine called "in focus" which is crammed with our members' images and articles which they contribute, free of charge. Until this year, it was actually printed but for the time being it is produced digitally.

I have a Nikon D500 in a Sea & Sea housing and am about to take a leap and buy a pair of Retra Pro strobes. They are so nice and shiny!  I thought I might be able to read about them on this forum.   have been using a YS250PRO which I absolutely love and have used it as a single strobe for a long time. I also have a pair of Inon Z240s which I have always taken with me as a back up.

The only diving I've been able to do this year, due to the travel restrictions, was four days with the seals at Lundy Island in August. Let's hope it won't be too long before things get back to normal.

I organize a two week liveaboard trip to the Red Sea every year and also love to go to Bali or Manado.  You can't beat Indonesia.

Well, I shall enjoy meeting you all and look forward to chatting soon.  And who knows, maybe I can even recruit one or two of you to come and give us a talk at BSoUP!

 

Joss
