Some of our guides and I took advantage of a free afternoon to go on a photographic mission on our house reef and wreck. Although all of our guides are pretty good in handling cameras and taking pictures already, there is always room for improvement.
Dive guides on a mission
Rockles and Marnes took our two rental Olympus TG4 for a spin. Both of them used only ambient light, internal flash or a torch to bring some light in their pictures. The results however are pretty impressive!
For the more advanced photographers Deddy and Marnes, the Panasonic GH4 with either one or two strobes gave them a perfect opportunity to practice. Since they have been shooting macro most of the time, they wanted to take their skills to the next level: wide angle photography can be challenging, especially when the visbility is not the greatest.
After a fun hour in the water, some mentoring, photo review and tips on editing, we are now looking forward to more pictures in the next few weeks. Stay tuned for the results of our ongoing underwater photo competition – guides can win a dive computer or iPhone amongst many other cool prices!
