Pics from TCI (Sony a7rIV, WWL-1, CMC-1)

Recommended Posts

I am home from a week on a liveaboard in Turks & Caicos Islands. I feel like these are the best of what I shot down there. 

I was shooting a Sony a7rIV in a Nauticam housing, with the Sony 28-60 lens. Using a WWL-1 for wide angle and a CMC-1 for macro, 2 x Inon Z240 Type III strobes with f/o cables and a UWT trigger in Manual mode, and a Archon 1000 lumen wide angle (video) light as a focus light. I've had the camera and housing for about 18 months now and this was my first trip with photos where all of it seemed to actually work correctly the whole time. 2 bad/failed triggers and a magnet switch on a strobe that needed to be replaced have foiled me for far too long. It was SO nice to dive and not have camera hiccups!

I had a 2 lens holder with bayonet mounts on one of my strobe arms. Being able to switch between WWL-1 and CMC-1 while in the water proved very handy several times. I liked being able to shoot sharks and sea slugs in the same dive!

Any comments or constructive criticism on these would be truly welcome.

I would love to see your pictures, Stuart, but I cannot see any. Am I the only one who cannot open any images from the post?

Hi Stuart,

Great pictures and beautiful colors! It's always nice to see tropical water photos as a European!

I particularly like the nurse shark, the hermit crab and the octopus eyes.

For the barrel sponge one, is it a cropped one at 60mm (+WWL-1) ?

Thank you for sharing

Alex

Hi Wolfgang,

Thanks for posting this info. I was starting to wonder if anyone could see them. I used links to where they are hosted on Facebook. Since @waterpixel can see them, I'm guessing it is something to do with that. Perhaps Alex has a FB account and is signed into in his browser and you don't. The pics are set to Public, so I was hopeful that anyone would be able to see them here, whether they were signed into a FB account or not. Bummer.

I need to make some time and make a choice of a real photo hosting site. I am just loathe to make a hasty decision - like throwing them up on Flickr - without suitable due diligence. That is why I now I have a bunch of "orphaned" photos still on Photobucket....

I will attempt to do that soon. But, I'm about to head out for a weekend of diving 2 states away, so it won't be this weekend...

Thank you, Alex! Those 3 are at the top of my list as well. :)

The barrel sponges are indeed cropped a bit and shot at 60mm. I cannot say for SURE, but I am PRETTY sure that I had the WWL-1 on at the time. The photo was shot during a night dive and I don't recall doing any shooting during a night dive with the bare flat port. Actually, I don't *think* I did any shooting with just the bare flat port at all. Always the WWL-1 or the CMC-1. I think. I do have CRS... (Can't Remember Shit)....
