Watching this school of neon fusiliers being hunted by bluefin jack and dogtooth tunas was like watching NatGeo on TV  just better. To catch the movement I used a long shutter speed of 1/10th sec

message this message is importantHello all,

I've just returned from St Lucia where I took my first steps into the world of underwater photography. Obviously I have little idea about what I am doing at this stage but I've created a simple blog where I have posted some of the photos and videos I took and I would appreciate some feedback and suggestions on what to work on but keep in mind that I am very much a beginner and am finding it difficult do to the most basic things smile
The address is website

I am using a Sea&Sea DX-GE5 with the flash Sea&Sea YS-Q2 and so far I have done no editing of the photos other than changing the size.

message Based on suggestions I received I have tried to correct the white balance and even with the auto setting in Photoshop Elements it is a big improvement over the originals.

message Hi, If that was me and my first time i would be very happy with the photos you have taken, yes it is a very confusing world using your camera underwater, but has i have found practice and practice more, yes you will get dives where you don't get the shots you want, but just get back in and try again smile
