I am from Belgium
Member since: Sunday, February 3, 2013
I live in Merchtem of Belgium and work for more than 38 years as an independent physiotherapist. During my interimship as kin├ęstudent in 1978 in Israel, I came in contact with diving during a weekend trip to Eilad to the Red Sea. This experience has never gone out of my head and in 1992 I begun the training for diving.
In 2005 started also with underwater photography. First with a small compact camera. With the years I have developed this into a high quality digital camera with a special underwater housing and provided with the necessary lights for illumination and different lenses. (Olympus E-3 + PL Olympus PEN PT EPO5L + green lights Force-5000 lumens).
For the finishing touch I use the software program "light room". Sometimes I change almost nothing to the picture but it could also be that everything changes depens on the subject.
This hobby has already brought me to all corners of the world but my faforite place until now: Galapagos, Asia
