Hello,

I'm back from a long absence! I'm from Denver, CO, USA and started learning on this site in 2003'ish when I initially started diving.  Stopped diving shortly thereafter due to life, which included having a daughter and narrowing my focus to mtn adrenaline sports.  She saw a grainy diving video of me in Bonaire from 2003 and I promised her we'd go diving when she was ready (she is now 13 yo and says she is ready). 

Excited to return and thank you up front for teaching an old dog some new tricks soon.  I just bought a TG-6 due to some recommendations on this site for our trip to Bora Bora in 2 weeks!

Hi everyone.

I went snorkeling for the first time, a few times last year.  I borrowed someone's underwater camera (and used a disposable film camera the other times).  I am going again soon.  This time with my own underwater camera.

Hi

I've been diving for a few years and love the underwater world and trying to photograph it. A recent "event" has meant that I am starting from scratch with a Nikon D500 and a secondhand Subal housing, a big change from my previous camera, an Olympus mirrorless .....so I'll be asking a lot of questions that are Nikon related I'm sure ;)

There are a few of us using this (brilliant!) combination, so ask away......

Hi everyone,

My name is Craine, and l I'm in the Clearwater, FL area. I've been working on my photography above and below the water for the last 10 years or so. I shoot a Sony a6400 in a Seafrogs housing with Inon strobes, and I'm finally getting results I'm proud of.

Bonjour,

Je suis un photographe sous marin de LYON (France), plusieurs fois champion de France de photographie sous marine. J'ai participé à 6 championnats du monde de la CMAS.

J'aime toujours autant la compétition et la recherche de l'image parfaite.

Introductory post... Been scuba diving and taking underwater photos since 1968. Started with Nikonos I, then Nik III, then various Nikons in various housings inc. Ikelite, Aquatica and Subal... all the way to D800. Got fed up with the weight and size of that in a Nauticam housing and downsized to Sony A6500, then A6400 with its improved AF. Heavily invested in Nauticam, but not endorsing that brand (actually, hoping my next housing isn't a Nauticam)!

New to the forum, beginner quality UW shooter, suck at PS beyond belief.  Beyond photography, diving, shooting, hunting, motorcycling, and Mountain Biking. Been creeping for a while, love the content and the expertise of the people here, way better than other places.

Hi there,

Iʻm Michael from Hawaii. I didnʻt have much time to take photos under water in the last years,  itʻs time for a change. Canʻt wait to get back out there with my AquaTech housing. 

You can see some of my photography here: https://www.leecaptureshawaii.com/Prints/Island-Collection There are just a few under water photos at the moment. More to come.

Hi all,

I live in Greece, enjoy snorkeling (usually up to 5m) and underwater photography. I currently use an Olympus TG6 with an Olympus wide extender (FCON-T01) and usually photograph wide photography with my other half as the main subject. Here are some of my best so far:

Hello,

I live in South Florida and do a lot of muck diving at Blue Heron Bridge in Riviera Beach. Started on a GoPro and moved to a TG6 and now on a Olympus PEN E-PL 10. I shoot mainly macro with the M.Zuiko 60mm and Inon diopters.

Been reading forum topics for a while which has been really useful as I learn and progress with underwater photography.

New to the forums and UW photography. Just picked up a TG-6 with enclosure so I’ll be doing quite a bit of reading. Will be used for snorkeling in north Florida so pretty clear green water.

Glad to be finally be an active member of the forums.
