pirate Show us some underwater photos

Are any of you cruisers taking photos while scuba diving?

Why not show us some of your snapshots and tell us a story on this thread?

pirate I give you some of mine for a start ...

I was on a liveaboard in Thailand and Burma in January/February. These are a few of the 1200 photos I took:


Typical scenery at Richelieu Rock, Thailand


Orange gorgonian seafan, Thailand


Cuttlefish, Burma


Grey reef shark, Burma


Manta ray, Burma


Moray eal, Burma


A scorpionfish resting on a gorgonian sea fan, Burma


This beautiful nudibranch was approximately 6 cm long, Burma


Another cuttlefish - seconds before it was attacked by a large grouper


The cuttlefish blowing out ink while beeing attacked. I think it got away.

Ever wondered why people go scuba diving? I love it, and bringing camera gear down gives it another dimention - for me.

Going sailing AND scuba diving is close to extacy ...

I picked up a Sony HandyCam that records direct to DVD and bought a Sony underwater housing for it. It is awesome. Very easy to use and works fantastic even in the hands of an inept amateur (that would be me). These are stills from the DVD video snagged with Sony Vegas. Not the best resolution but you can tick through the fames until you have just the instant you want to get a still from.

Am I right to think that these (awesome) photos look better than in real life? From my experience, the loss of red light as you dive makes everything look rather dull to the eye. The (auto) whitebalance on the camera, or additional artificial light, compensates for the spectrum imbalance and the pictures look somewhat more vibrant and colourfull.

depends how you define real life. The flash does add additional depth to the colour.

The color you see is the reflected light. The deeper you dive the more of the "vibrant" color light is filtered out, and the less color you see. If you took the object to the surface you would see the color, and simularly if you use flash you can see the color in the photo. If you use your dive light at depth you can also see the color (you have to put the light right up to the object, the light does not travel far).

Here are a couple photo's to add.

Hey Fred,

What's that big metal grate the diver is next to in one of your images? I'm not quite making that out.

Oh Cool Thread! I just joined this forum this weekend, and found these photos today. When I get back to my own computer (different island) I will post some u/w photos as well. Not as good as some of theses, but I think interesting. I have found three old ballast piles from the 1700's, as well as an admiralty anchor from early 1800's.
