Re: photo 101 help

What camera do you have? To achieve a black background while using a strobe you need to adjust the aperture so that it will not allow in much light. If you where using a dslr then the camera would meter very low in the exposure bracket. However since you're using a point and shoot that has very limi...

FS. olympus 6020 and housing

Won a small photo competition and received a dedicated point and shoot package. I shoot dslr and will not need a small portable camera system like this. I have taken it into the water once; that was to test the new panoramic feature, which is pretty cool. You can get a panoramic shot just by sweepin...

Re: line shape and form of the human body ( NUDE)

LOL, you guys (dphershman) have an odd way of talking behind a persons back. Even though the question was not directed at me, I feel I must defend my morality of posting a shot taken under Oahu waters on a PNW forum. So here is what I thought others would like to comment on (or you could read the ab...

line shape and form of the human body ( NUDE)

For photo design class we needed to create a black and white nude of the human body. The instructor wanted us to create the lines and beauty of the human body using light. I believe he wanted similar to "bodyscapes" created in the studio. My idea was the light ripples carving the lines of ...

Ducks from below.

Re: Deaf divers

My Best friend and dive buddy is deaf, He is an amazing Freediver.
ASL is also an amazing tool while underwater. especially as a photographer. IMO the aquatic world is one where the tables are turned, the deaf surely have the advantage.

In hawaii, There are so many people in the water, surfers, divers, spearos, tourist, and turtles, that if a boater sees any kind of Float they stay away from it. In the few months that I have lived here I have repeatedly seen boaters inspect anything floating in the water like they are a f22 pilot o...

No, It's not the cold! No, Its not the crappy vis! No, its not the crazy currents! Its the fact that no one on a boat gives a Fu*!% about dive flags. As I came up from a dive I turned around to see a boat heading around the corner.. It buzzed by me about 25' away, The driver didnt look in my directi...

Your going to experience shutter lag with any point and shoot. I have the cannon g10 and before that I owned the g9 Housed with cannons housing. Its an amazing system and gives ample room for growth. If your going to go with housing outside of the cannon brand I would recommend NOT going with the ik...
