It started to sprinkle out, the bokeh makes me swoon. Heart

Cool, I like it. It's different.

RE: Photography
There is this small old wooden damn type of thing. I don't know how else to explain it.
This is an underwater shot of the water flowing over the wood.
And this is all blind shooting in water only inches deep. I just put my camera in the water,
aim towards something that looks cool, click and see what happens. It's a lot of fun and
a great excuse to cool off on a hot day in the woods.

The water in these pictures looks like quicksilver, especially in the third one. Consider

I know it does. It's so cool. It's opened my eyes to a whole new world of beauty.

Years ago, I used a Nikonos. I really wish Nikon would introduce a digital Nikonos.

Hmmm, I might have to take gander at ebay, kjijiji, craigslist etc. Maybe the gem still exists. Just developing may be harder, it seems film processing quality is going downhill as the years go by.

Very different ones for sure.

This is the camera I use. It's great for hiking. I don't have to worry about breaking it on the trail
And it takes good pictures. It's great for mountain streams, lakes and rivers. Or just swimming in
the pool. The line I hear most often is you took those pictures with that little thing.
It's the person behind the camera that makes the shot.

It is true that great things can happen with any type of instrument. Playing with coffee filters is fun and I've used tin foil taped to a bin lid as a reflector, ha ha.

Also, breaking the rules is sometimes the most necessary thing Thumbsup

I am a FREAK about needing to control the aperture, and I tend to hover around the 2.8 mark. It's great for portraiture, but I am going to have to work sooo hard to change that mental frame of mind to play more. This year I am branching out just for the fact that I am in a rut and need more play and discovery. If I discover my niche or style in landscape/urbanscape more perhaps I can fuse the two together (portraiture).

Anyway, I have had someone bug me about doing underwater mermaid shots (of them dressed up, apparently there is a whole world of these people out there, haha) and I have no experience with underwater photography.

I feel like I am just nestled in here, like I live here. Such a great perspective of this habitat.

I have a Canon EOS 5D Mark II and a Canon EOS 50D, they go inside Ikelite housings and then I use Ikelite substrobes to light up the underwater world![attachment=1152]

LJ, I created a course to teach SLR underwater photography. I'd be happy to give you some tips if you'd like.

Awesome! I'll take a look around, this isn't something I'd look at for a couple months but I'm sure I'll have questions.


How did you get into underwater photography?

Andean Condor

This bird will probably outlive me, they can live up to around 100 years old. They can have a wingspan of up to 10.2ft.
