My Photography Masterclass Review

Highly Recommended

The writer has done a thorough research even about the obscure and minor details related to the subject area. And also facts weren’t just dumped, but presented in an interesting manner.

Purchasing this book was one of the best decisions I have made, since it is worth every penny I invested on it. I highly recommend this to everyone out there.

Digital SLR Housings

Underwater Housing Olympus 8080

Digital SLR Housing To extend the capabilities of the digital SLR cameras Ikelite has designed a new underwater housing. This housing is injection molded of clear polycarbonate for strength, visual access to the camera, lcd screens and camera controls. The ergonomic design places camera functionality at your fingertips for the ultimate in creative control. The interchangeable port system accommodates a wide variety of lenses from super-wide angle to supermacro. The rubber handles offer excellent grip and a quick release system for Ikelite's new SA-100 Arm system. An external Ikelite connector is provided to connect single or dual Ikelite Substrobes. Ikelite supports their underwater digital housings with a full line of accessories. Choose from trays with single or dual handle and quick release of strobes. The DS50 Substrobe is ideal for cameras with zoom lenses or choose the DS125 for use with wide-angle lenses. Many Nikon and Olympus models offer true TTL lighting exposure, or use...

Housing arrivals

The reason for this is because Nikon had used the identical camera chassis from a previous digital SLR for which Subal had already made a housing. The result was a manufacturers and underwater photographers dream - a housing being available as soon as the camera hits the market. It makes great financial sense for Nikon to use an existing chassis while upgrading the sensor chip and electronics. This saves R& D time and expense and Canon have also done this with some of their high end DSLRs. This new development helps both the camera and housing manufacturers as well as underwater photographers.

Sigma 1020mm lens

The 10 - 20 mm F4.0 - F5.6 is an interesting super wide-angle lens which would provide 15 - 30 mm equiv. on a 1.5 FOV crop camera (such as the Nikon D70). Following the success of the 10D, the 20D is the latest offering from Canon, thought by many to be the market leaders in digital photography. The 20D is an 8 megapixel DSLR, offering the handling and build quailty many would expect from a pro level camera. Veteran underwater photographers often favoured twin hose regulators because they could make shy subjects much more approachable. This is because exhaled air leaves from behind the divers head. The bubbles are also better dissipated by the valve casing . Basically, the fish doesen't get buffetted as much as when you exhale through a normal regulator mouthpiece.

Mustdo dives

The Dive - This is one of the world's best boat dives., A true corner jutting out into the sea, this place is very nice when the tide is slack and spectacular when the current is moving. Consistently active, see whitetip, nurse and gray reef sharks on the move. There are tame Napoleon wrasses, big schools of fish and turtles. While the big stuff is the major attraction, there are many cleaning stations here and everything from barracuda to pyramid butterflyfish come in for a stop. Great for fish photographers to capture behaviour images. Lenses - There lots of marine life here but most people go for the big stuff which means sea fans on the walls, schools of fish and sharks. Use the 10mm Nikkor for the walls and barracuda & jack schools. Use a 35mm or zoom for the gray reef sharks which can come portrait close at times. There are even some orangutan crabs in the bubble coral near the Blue Holes for macro freaks so a 55mm macro lens Lenses - Adorned with black coral and fans, a 10mm...

Right in the eye

I had just finished a muck dive with Kungkungan Bay Resort in the Lembeh Strait and when I got back onto the boat all the photographers were asking me why my strobes were so far away from the camera and subject Was I mad Did I have no idea (maybe they were right ) When I explained that I was using a fisheye lens they were still not impressed and were just even more convinced that I was mad and had no idea what I was doing. At least, however, they now understood my strobe positioning. photographers talk endlessly about the fact that digital is fine for macro but it cannot handle wide-angle or contrast. For me it is not a debate worth having. I think the complete opposite is true and, if I have learnt anything about the arena of digi underwater, it is that everyone has their own ideas and ways of doing things. All are just as valid as each other. Nikon D70 and 10.5mm in an Ikelite housing, 2 Ikelite DS125 strobes with eV controllers. One slaved, ISO 200, White balance auto, Contrast...

By Alexander Mustard

We live in a hurly-burley disposable digital age. When it comes to technology we all want the latest and greatest, and we want it now. Or preferably yesterday To meet this demand, digital products can be rushed to the market without due care and attention and everything from computer software to digital cameras regularly receive user installable updates to fix bugs and improve performance. Nikon have taken a different approach with their new flagship digital SLR, the 12.4 megapixel D2x, and have only released it when they were ready. The D2x is late, and my early impressions suggest that it has been well worth the wait. The question on many camera-fans' (but maybe not photographers') lips is can the new Nikon beat the current global benchmark, the mighty Canon 1DS Mk2. Well, I am afraid I am not going to answer that question for two reasons. First I have not had experience with both systems underwater. And second I believe it has little real relevance, except for bragging rights. I...

By Jerome Hingrat

I also mounted diffusers on my strobes to soften the light. This reduced the flash output. After a roll of shots with average exposure and some backscatter, I decided to get closer using a 60 mm Nikkor macro lens. I also pre-set the lens to stop it from the travelling the length of the barrel, this is possible with the help of a switch on Nikkor macro lenses.

Underwater Photography

95 to 100 degrees is what most professional underwater photographers consider to be the benchmark or standard wide angle focal length. Narrower angles often just don't cut it. The Inon UWL100 provides up to 100 degrees. That's twice the coverage of most cameras' built in lenses. And substantially wider than the Olympus C5060's own 70 degree wide angle lens and port combination. Conveniently the UWL100 is also a wetlens. You can remove and replace it underwater, changing lenses to suit your subject.

Ikelite Slrdc Housings offer eTTL Compatibility

To extend the capabilities of the digital SLR cameras Ikelite designed the SLR-DC underwater housing. This housing is injection molded of clear polycarbonate for strength, visual access to the camera, LCD screens and camera controls. The ergonomic design places camera functionality at your fingertips for the ultimate in creative control. The interchangeable port system accommodates a wide variety of lenses from macro to wide-angle to zoom. The rubber handles offer excellent grip and a quick release system for Ikelite's new SA-100 Arm system. An external Ikelite connector is provided to connect single or dual Ikelite Substrobes.

Hyperlink help needed

I'm sure there's a lot of underwater photographers contemplating a leap into the digital age and they will learn a lot from Alex Mustard's excellent review of the Nikon D100 and the Subal D10 housing in this issue. Comparing 35mm film performance to digital is not yet on an equal footing but it is getting very close. When a full frame 35mm chip is available at a reasonable price we will have a similar depth of field but with a much improved white balance performance and that has to be worth the wait. In the meantime the imminent arrival of the Nikkor 12-24mm lens will give the equivalent of an 18-36mm zoom with the Nikon D100 which has a smaller chip then the 35mm format. This will be a very attractive lens to underwater photographers who tend to use much wider lenses than land photographers and will help to justify the D100 format as sufficient for the majority of underwater photographers needs. To this end we reckon that you might be able to persuade photographers or whoever to...

Vertical Shots In Seconds

Photography under ice is not particularly difficult, right up to the point you lose feeling in your hands. Like your dive gear, it's best if you can keep camera equipment in the car until immediately before it will be used, and keep it dry before going into the water to prevent water from entering controls and freezing. Afterwards get your gear somewhere warm if possible for the same reason. shoot larger than life. Add it to your 1 1 macro lens and get a 30 increase in magnification for just 79.95. The Nexus Wet Lens slips on and off underwater and does not affect your autofocus. The Nexus Wet Lens is available in three sizes - 110, 100 and 90mm diameter so they may fit other systems but they can be fitted directly onto Subal and Nexus macro ports. In addition, as is shown above, they also fit the UK Coolpix 5000 housing.

Has the future arrived

In 2002, Nikon released the D100 digital SLR and it has been greeted by a furore of activity from housing manufacturers. In contrast, housings for Nikon's higher specified D1 series were conspicuous by their (almost total) absence. But the cheaper, lighter, smaller D100 has already been promised homes from the likes of Aquatica, Hugyphot, Ikelite, Light and Motion, Sea and Sea, and the subject of this review, Subal. Has the future arrived My aim in this article is to assess the D100 from the point of view of someone who is already shooting a 35mm Nikon SLR underwater and is thinking about digital, because I see them as the most likely client for the D100 (for one thing they will already have the lenses). This article represents my first impressions. I have not yet used a digital TTL flashgun with the housing underwater, nor have I taken it on a typical diving trip. But at a time when SLR photographers are taking digital increasingly seriously, I hope you find my initial experiences...

Fine Pix F700 WPFX700 housing

About 12 months ago Fujifilm announced it's 4th generation CCD (charge coupled device) known as the Super CCD SR. Why is this significant for underwater photographers Fuji claim that this new array of image sensors has four times the dynamic range (the camera's ability to distinguish between light and dark) than conventional CCDs. Underwater this dynamic range is frequently particularly large, especially in sunlight, due to the high absorption of light in water compared with that of air. Thus any technology that can help the camera capture highlights, shadows and the low light of the depths simultaneously is welcome. Using the system underwater was quite intuitive. The two knobs on the top turn the camera on or off and select the camera mode. There is a choice of manual, shutter priority, aperture priority, automatic, or programmed. The programmed mode is a little confusing. You have to select Other controls include, 3 x zoom, ISO, white balance, flash mode, close-up option,...

Find A Dealer Near You Or

I have been playing with camera's underwater for about ten years and a couple of years ago I went digital and purchased the Nikon Coolpix 5000. After two years of playing with the CP 5000 underwater and being fortunate enough to obtain some decent shots I made a decision to upgrade to a new system. The primary reasons for wanting to upgrade the CP5000 was because of the shutter lag delay, slow write times for raw files and I wanted more pixels so I could enlarge images to A3 size with minimal resolution loss. Plus all my photography buddies were upgrading to bigger and better cameras so I had to keep up

Breakthrough Technology At A Budget Price

Cheap combos save money by utilising entry level cameras. These are cameras priced similarly to a high spec compact and designed to sway less committed photographers into using SLRs. Camera manufacturers hope they'll upgrade to more expensive SLRs over time. Housing prices are usually similar whether you house a budget SLR or a semi pro camera. So savings often amount to no more than a couple of hundred pounds -negligible when compared to the overall costs of buying a system and travelling abroad to use it. Now a new budget priced SLR looks poised to rock the staus quo. The Nikon F80 has replaced the underated but highly efficient F70. The F80 is simple to use for getting started but offers many outstanding features that will appeal to the serious user. The lightweight camera draws heavily on technology first seen on the flagship Nikon F5 and pro level F100. This includes a five point autofocus selector allowing the photographer to choose off centre autofocusing to aid composition....

No Cost Options for Improvement

Back in the 80's, long before digital cameras, and many of today's UW photographers, were born, IBM came up with a brilliant idea. They distributed coffee mugs to employees of computer centers. On each of these mugs was printed the one word THINK in many different languages. at all. They apply universally to digital or film cameras, cold or warm water diving, point and shoot or expensive SLR cameras, beginner (and often) experienced photographers. And, they aren't technical. So many fish and so little time You are new to underwater photography and want a photo of every amazing critter you see You swim from fish SNAP to nudibranch SNAP to lobster SNAP to eel SNAP On every dive, see a subject center it in the viewfinder SNAP move on to the next shot.

Categories of unmanned underwater vehicles and their basic device components

For the observation of marine organisms, seafloor geology and underwater object recognition, the selection and arrangement of lights and cameras are important. The popularity of high definition television (HDTV) cameras and LED lights are causing an increase in availability of underwater video. In addition to high quality camera imaging, there are holographic cameras, laser scanning systems, acoustic imaging systems and so on. Further information on these imaging systems has been reviewed by Kocak et al. (2008). The underwater vehicle PICASSO, developed by JAMSTEC (Yoshida 2007), is equipped with a broadcast quality HDTV camera. This high resolution, high sensitivity camera enables precise observation of plankton beyond that which was possible with traditional NTSC cameras. The increase in resolution means animals can be identified to species rather than genus or simply family in some cases. JAMSTEC has developed an original wideband optical communication system with five interfaces...

Underwater Welding Shark

Shark Whale Derawan

Subject and whether or not you are trying to include some habitat as well. Even the larger fish can be captured effectively in tight face portrait with a 50 60mm macro lens, so this is as always a good all round work horse. If you know the dive site well and the subject you are targeting then that will make lens choice a little simpler, but once under the water as always almost anything can turn up unexpectedly The Manta's had been with us for about fifteen minutes with me shooting the same old stuff when suddenly I had a flash of inspiration I decided to use the illumination from the torch- lights of the dive crew, the non-photographers and the deck lights from our live-aboard, which were clearly visible through the under-surface above us. I used my one flashgun as fill light on the manta. I selected 400 ISO and opened my shutter speed to l 8th 15th and 30th of a second and used panning techniques (fingers crossed that this would work) I used wide apertures of F2.8 and F4. I...

Combining Shutter Speed And Aperture

As a rough guide to the slowest speed you can use when hand holding a camera, the speed will be the reciprocal of the focal length of the lens. For example with a 35mm lens the slowest sensible speed would be 1 35th sec i.e. 1 30th and for a 135mm telephoto it would be 1 135th sec i.e. 1 125th.

Photo courses will start you visualising good composition by talking about the 'rule of thirds' and subject positioning within the frame. If you sort your shots out into two piles where the first pile follows the rule of thirds, diagonals and has the subject positioned well in the frame facing in the general direction of your lens and in the second pile the rest.Your best shots will be in the first pile. Look in the books, find the charismatic creatures and learn how to find them. Show the picture in the book to your dive guide and ask him to find you one. If he looks blank get him to ask his pals and you might get a better guide (Top photographers hunt out the top guides.)Once you know where they Demelza & Will Postlethwaite are professional underwater photographers and travel writers Their images and articles are widely published in scuba diving magazines.

Our subjects, the seals, were in less than three metres of water and, although clear for most of the year, our visit coincided with an unseasonable plankton bloom. In our favour the Cornish sun was shining and the sea was flat so our enemy was to be backscatter. There were several options to overcome this. The use of ambient light and avoiding strobes altogether, twin strobes swept well back on long arms, shooting up or down and aperture priority with fill-in TTL flash.

Fuji Provia 100 F aperture priority meant that even as the seal moved in the water column with more or less sunshine in the shot the exposure remained good.

Environmental Perception for Navigation

In Topological Navigation, the large-distance low-precision navigation modality, omnidirectional images are used in their raw format to characterise the environment by its appearance. Omnidirectional images are advantageous as they are more robust to occlusions created e.g. by humans. Visual servoing is included in topological navigation as the means of providing local control.

Underwater photographers are often accused of being too conservative in their picture taking. But we do have some good excuses first we are already adventurers in an alien environment, where recording clear, sharp and well exposed images is fraught with technical difficulties. In addition, many of our subjects are unfamiliar to our audience, so it makes sense to capture this other world as clearly as possible. Consequently, underwater photographers tend to stick to tried and tested...

DX Zoom Nikkor 1224mm

TOKYO-Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the development of the first DX Nikkor lens - the AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 12-24mm f 4G IF-ED. (18-36mm in 35mm (135) format equivalent with Nikon D1-series and D100 digital SLRs. This will be the first truly compact, lightweight AF-S ultra-wideangle zoom lens designed exclusively for use with Nikon digital SLR cameras, and is scheduled to be released in the spring of 2003. Since the D1, Nikon has employed a 23.7 x 15.6mm size image sensor in its digital SLRs. It was designed specifically for Nikon digital SLR cameras, and provides a wide dynamic range which makes it easier for the camera to process captured images. At present, this sized image sensor features extremely well-balanced performance that is not possible with sensors of other sizes. Needless to say, it also offers high cost-performance. However, when a 35mm (135) format lens is used with a Nikon digital SLR, the picture angle is approximately 1.5 times the focal length of the lens...

I also set the white balance to auto. You have a wide range and a custom mode but these are mirrored in the Nikon Editor software and I feel it is far easier adjust it here where you can accurately see the image on a computer screen rather than on the LCD While on the subject of the LCD I removed the cover. There is also one feature I liked but might not be to everyone's taste and that is a viewfinder grid. For me, I felt it really helped composition. use aperture priority more often with my 35mm setup but one of the failures so far in the digital arena is to get the new range of DSLRs to acknowledge they have a flashgun attached to them. They fire the gun but you cannot get the camera to default to l 60th and no slower as would have been the case before. This is not a real hardship as you do get to see your image instantly on the LCD anyway but it is a shame that the nice AE lock setup on the camera and the housing are thus somewhat redundant. Another small problem arises due to this...

1 have always been a big fan of Panasonic compact cameras. They have a bewildering range but I am particularly drawn to the LX series which is their top end, controllable camera offering aperture shutter priority automation as well as full manual control including manual white balance, not to mention 16 9 aspect capability and the ability to shoot RAW as well as jpg images. Finally I also think the cameras just look good and my latest LX3 in black livery has a great retro, almost 35mm Leica look. My first LX was the LX2 and I bought it mainly for land use but, rather naively, I expected an underwater housing to become available to use it as a useful back up (or even an alternative) to a DSLR system. Such a housing never really appeared so I learned a useful lesson - if you are buying a camera to use it underwater, make sure there is a good housing available first For me, the most important control is Manual White Balance because I do a lot of available light work with filters.

The answer is to dive with other underwater photographers. But how - especially if there are none in your club or among your usual dive buddies. One way is book onto an underwater photo workshop. But 'workshop' sounds worryingly serious and raises a number of questions Does it mean a 'photography course' with lots of teaching and learning Or is it just a dive trip with a group of photographers Are workshops only for accomplished photographers with housed dSLR systems Or are they for photographers with all levels of experience and ability including those In 2008 I went on three photo workshops. I found that the range of experience went from beginner to those who had started in the days of film and the equipment ranged from compact camera to housed dSLR. And as for not getting on with the others at last I was among a group of divers as obsessed as me about underwater photography and wanting to talk f-stops, lenses, Lightroom and critters all day long Nikon D200 in SubalND20.

The surface because I am a poor land photographer. The only time that the camera has been back to Nikon is when I had an issue with the autofocus in South Australia. I jokingly called this Stephen Frink Syndrome as the autofocus stopped working with macro lenses (the gag being that Steve shoots pictures that sell, so doesn't do macro). The camera continued to work with wide angle lenses and I went on to shoot the sealion image in this article, before returning home to get it fixed. Nikon UK identified the Image 78281. This image was taken while my autofocus refused to work with macro lenses. It continued to work perfectly with wide angle lenses even when the subject was strongly backlit.

Iso 25600

The only disappointment I could find is the area of the matrix focussing display. Due to the larger frame size it is considerably smaller when compared to the area of the D2x and D300. If you generally keep the main point of interest in the centre third of the frame then this shouldn't be a problem, but you can't ask it to focus near the edges. For me, shooting mainly with wide-angle lenses, I only use the viewfinder for general aiming, although if you can get close enough the D3 actually gives 100 viewing of the image. If I require more accurate framing then I switch to 'Live View' mode. Similar to compact digital cameras the D3's rear screen can be used to view the frame before exposure. There is a drawback though to using Live View. The camera needs the mirror to be down in order to use its super fast phase-detection auto-focus. That is, it can't focus on-the-fly with the mirror up. Thus you have to slightly depress the shutter, wait until it focuses (the mirror drops) and then...

New Products

Aquatica is proud to introduce its new housing for the Nikon D90 camera. This exciting product is part of a new line of Aquatica underwater camera housings that are designed and built from a solid piece of aluminum to take advantage of the new, smaller and less expensive D90 DSLR camera, making high quality underwater photography and High Definition video more affordable for the recreational diver. Boasting a 12 megapixel High Definition CCD, 3 TFT LCD monitor, 35-102mm 3x optical zoom lens plus High Definition movie capture, Sea& Sea underwater mode and SDHC compatibility the new DX-1200HD is small, light and easy to use making it ideal for those new to underwater photography as well as more experienced shooters. coverage.

Imagine you are cruising the reef with your trusty housing and 105mm macro lens looking for small critters to fill the frame. Your patience is rewarded when you spot the most gorgeous triple fin blenny sitting in the perfect position in a small crack in the reef. You approach slowly thinking about lighting angles and avoiding shadows and begin to adjust your flash arms, loosening fittings or creaking your bendy arms into position. Adjust the aperture as you raise the camera to focus on the blenny and approach slowly - at that moment the blenny high tails it leaving only a puff of dust suspended in the water Before making a leap in the dark I decided to utilise some existing equipment and satisfy myself that this 'flat lighting' technique would work. My assumption was that backscatter may not be such a problem due to the extremely narrow angle of view of the 105mm or 180 200mm macro lenses and the proximity of the light source to the lens itself. With the aid of a small, sculpted port...

One approach to get fresh images, that is popular with a number of photographers, is to take portraits actually showing some of the behaviour of these creatures. This is a good approach, but I told you about it in the last issue of UWP, so I need some new ideas for this article One approach I favour when trying to come up with ideas is to follow the clear logic of Sherlock Holmes of macro are simple use a small aperture to get the maximum depth of field, use the fastest flash synchronisation shutter speed to remove ambient light, and illuminate the picture with TTL flash.

Ocean Optics

With this in mind I thought I might try to encourage more photographers to sample our temperate waters by singing the praises of British fish. After all, if you can learn to produce good images under difficult conditions then it can only make the task so much easier on your next tropical trip and who knows you may even learn to enjoy it enough, then try to get even closer still Unless you have exceptional conditions, which do occur occasionally, you must forget about stand off photography and stick with macro and close up techniques. If we are concentrating on fish photography then you are unlikely to need to use a wide angle lens, but occasions do arise when you have a co-operative subject which allows you close enough to include the habitat or the subject is so large that only a wide angle lens is suitable. as much time as you need to capture them on film.

Mathematical models

Mathematical models of noise in the ocean can be segregated into two categories ambient-noise models and beam-noise statistics models. Ambient-noise models predict the mean levels sensed by an acoustical receiver when the noise sources include surface weather, biologics and such commercial activities as shipping and oil drilling. Beam-noise statistics models are more specialized in that they predict the properties of low-frequency shipping noise for application to large-aperture, narrow-beam passive sonar systems. The latter models use either analytic (deductive) or simulation (inductive) techniques to generate statistical descriptions of the beam noise. In this context, beam noise is defined as the convolution of the receiver beam pattern with the sum of the intensities from the various noise sources. The analytic models calculate statistical properties directly from the components (e.g. source level, propagation loss) while the simulation models use Monte Carlo techniques.

Slow shutter speeds

Wide aperture macro also works on shots that are only lit with flash. Try to select backgrounds of strong, solid colour as details will be out of focus. Nikon D100 + 105mm lens. Subal housing. 1 180th sec f5. 2 Subtronic Alphas on l 32nd power. small aperture.

Sony go back a long time in producing video cameras. The last series of models have been equipped with the possibility to capture in High Definition (HD), and for storage possibilities there is a choice between the internal drive and tape. This is also the case with the Sony HDR-SR8 it is capable of capturing in High Definition as well as in Standard Definition. The camera has an internal hard drive with an impressive 100GB of memory. This allows for capturing 13 hours of HD full-motion movie in the highest quality. Besides that the camera features a card slot for a memory card (Memory Stick (PRO) Duo). In addition to capturing full-motion videos, and even during the capturing of these videos, the also camera allows for capturing still pictures, and storing these on the memory card. The pictures taken while capturing a video at the same time have a resolution of 4.3 Megapixels and taking still pictures only they will have a resolution of 6.1 Megapixels.

In this article we'll be looking at basic entry level digital cameras rather than the more expensive digital SLR (single lens reflex) cameras. A lot of the terminology applies to both types of cameras and we'll look at D-SLR's in the next issue of UwP. underwater photographers choose the more expensive D-SLR cameras which have virtually no delay. Most digital cameras have built in zoom lenses which are very versatile and some offer additional 'digital' zoom performance for increased focal length but the image quality drops off considerably using a digital zoom.

Wavelengths, the wavelengths we would usually supply with our flashgun. It is important to remember that filters, either in the form of seawater or the one on your lens, work by subtraction, they can only take away unwanted wavelengths. So in filter photography we are always reducing the light that is available.

B. getting the camera close to the subject (to cut down absorption on the way back) by using wide angle or macro lenses to get close to the subject In reality, most underwater photographers use a strobe (flash) to restore colour and contrast, but there will be occasions when you want to capture an image of an object, such as a wreck, which is too large to light in this artificial way, and you must make the best of what light there is. Films come also in two different types, either colour print films giving a negative image that can be printed, or colour transparency (or reversal) films which are suitable for projection. Slides have generally been favoured by underwater photographers, as they can be shown to a large audience, and professional publishers have in the past preferred transparencies. What actual film to use is generally a personal preference, as each individual film stock returns slightly different results. I have noticed that underwater photographers choose to use a medium...

This picture finished first in the black and white pictures. It is my least favourite of the photographs I entered into the Antibes Festival - which I guess shows how subjective picture judging is I took this picture at the wreck of the Oro Verde in Grand Cayman. I used my Nikon F100 + 28-70mm in a Subal housing and two Subtronic Alpha flashes. The film was Kodak Elitechrome extracolor (colour slide ) I drained the colour from the image on the computer before printing. Exposure was on aperture priority (f22), with slow, rear flash synch at (1 2 sec). This picture was second in the same category. This picture was taken at dawn at the Sandbar on Grand Cayman. I used a Nikonos V with 15mm lens, shooting on aperture priority at f5.6 with no flash (shutter approx 1 30-1 60th). This picture was also taken on colour slide and as such, is rather flat and unremarkable. But I liked the composition so decided to have a look at it in black and white on the computer. The resulting image is one of...

An SLR allows more creativity and control over the results since in most cases you see what you are shooting in the viewfinder (in certain cases, however, less than 100 of the image is in the viewfinder),but it also requires more skill than simply placing a framer over a subject and pressing the trigger. While this will certainly remove many of the limitations imposed by not using an SLR camera, it also will whet your appetite for shooting reef scenics and large marine animals rather than small marine animals that move slowly. These larger reef scenes are normally taken with a wider angle lens, which can vary from 14mm to 35mm. I personally favor the Nikonos 15mm lens for the Nikonos V camera, and a housed 18mm lens for a housed 100 viewfinder camera such as the Nikon F5. Don't take my personal preferences as more than recommendations of what I personally like. What I do is determine the background exposure by spot metering on the blue water I wish to be exposed properly. This is...

The model in this image is about 20 feet away. I used the technique has above, by drumming my fingers on the dome in order to get the torch dead centre. I would have preferred the beam to be slightly offset as in 'PNG Barrel Sponge' but I pressed the shutter when the Kowalski was aiming directly into the lens. In several other shots of this set the light beam was better but the position of the diver was awkward and unbalanced. Using apertures of F4 or F5.6 (as was the case in this shot) can often make the dive light too bright. Nikon 17mm - 35mm zoom lens set to 17mm end.

Apart from the turtle laying eggs, which was taken on my wife Sally's Motormarine II with built in flash, the photos were all taken with a Sigma 50mm macro lens on a Nikon 801S in a Subal housing. They were lit with twin Ikelite strobes, an Ai and an MV on a combination of Ikelite and ultralight arms. Film was Fujichrome 100 iso Sensia II. Overall the diving was very good and at times excellent. El Nino had taken it's toll on the corals but there aren't many places that can offer such a wide variety of marine life, from the tiny pygmy seahorse and mandarin fish through to turtles, barracuda, sharks and manta rays. If you're interested in wrecks then you'll be sadly disappointed but for photographers the main problem is deciding whether to use a wide angle for the mantas or a macro for the smaller stuff

North Carolina's resident sand tiger sharks hold a special place in my heart. I find photographing them enjoyable and rewarding. Best of all, it is pretty easy to do. Even amateur photographers can capture stunning images. It seems as if sandtiger sharks were custom built for underwater photographers. Their visible teeth and large size make them high impact subjects that are sure to evoke a response from your viewers. They are extremely tolerant of divers and can be approached with relative ease. And, most appreciated by underwater photographers, they typically hover motionless in the water column On most days the sharks allow photographers to approach within inches before they swing their massive tails and bolt off into the distance with a loud THUMP. At other times one can only swim within ten feet of a shark before it fires off like a living missile. The term shark missile was coined by an ex-dive buddy of mine whose favorite hobby was to scare the sharks off at precisely The dives...

With the wide open aperture come the resultant soft edges on the final image, while this can be sorted with a judicious crop or two it is far from ideal. The fix Well we obviously need to close the aperture somewhat, which will mean longer exposures, tripods come to mind, (oh no, I did try it once before and am sure the fish laughed at me). In 1906 Wratten in association with Kenneth Mees developed coloured filters using dyed gelatin - these filters later became known as Wratten filters. Each filter was given a number to identify it. Some of these filter numbers will still be familiar to photographers today such as Skylight 1A.

I am addicted to underwater photography. I admit it. Primary symptoms of my addiction include always complaining that dives aren't long enough and my buddy ascending on their own and then never speaking to me again. It's a pity that being enthusiastic about photography and actually taking good pictures are two different things. For a long time, my pictures were fairly mediocre.
