Hey Coops, is she on the dgrin.com forum already? They do friendly competitions there which are like an assignment, which are great fun plus it makes you try pictures you would normally not do. Each time a different challenge, from macro to rusty things to night etc. The winner decides on what the next challenge is. They have several levels of these competitions. Also, lots of photography info there.

Not that one, but she is on others and some do that challenge as well. A couple more from the last two days then.

No idea why, but a pumpkin. Not a butter pumpkin.


A dredge in the marina yesterday.

Hi Tammy44
Yeah, we love taking photos of our journeys around the world.
We have been approached by the odd magazine to post photos and write stories but never found it to be something that would sustain our sailing ventures so rather write and post as a form of sharing with others.
We purchased a decent camera half way into our trip and friends who follow our blog say they can see the difference in our photos although I have never proclaimed myself to be much of a photographer.
I would not advise an expensive spend with the thought to earn money taking photos of your trip but it is a worthwhile investment for ones own memories. Our cat is currently hauled in Raiatea for hurricane season and I so miss taking photos and being on the islands ... Oh well ... Only 2 weeks to go and then we are back there again ... YAY!! My photos have been what has kept me going whilst on land ... It is worth taking as many as is possible.
We shoot with a canon D300 and have a smaller canon which has been replaced due to moisture ingress. Choose your camera well ... The small canons HATE water environments and Canon won't come to the party come time for replacing it.
Friends of ours had their new camera grow 'fungus' on the sensors due to the moisture inside their boat, so if you have a boat which is not 'DRY' inside, best put your camera in a sealed container with moisture absorbing buds.
I must say our 300 has worked in harsh environments ... Just had it serviced and there are no problems ... But one has to be careful!

Also ... Take along a decent but cheap enough underwater camera like the 'go pro' . I use a 'Sealife' which was reasonably priced and takes fair photos without the risk of the canon underwater in a faulty waterproof housing.
Hope this helps ... Enjoy your preparations toward your upcoming cruise ... It is truly a MAGNIFICENT way to spend life!
