    i'm into underwater photography and was inspired by HydreigonStar's thread, found here: http://infiniteheightsmc.com/t/pictures-i-have-taken.4287/ to share some of my pictures. there's only a few so far since i don't get to go scuba diving as often as i'd like, but here they are. also, these are completely raw pictures, they haven't been edited in any way, so some may be a little off center, the colors may seem a little dull on some (due to colors fading at depth, a strobe can only do so much), etc.

    You should add some back ground music to the videos, add some flare, boom a new youtube career

    thanks! ^__^
    of course you're jealous! :p glad you like them! ^__^
    good idea, but for now i'd like to keep the videos raw, unedited, since that's how my pics are. i may consider it in the future however



    also everyone, i'm workin on my strobe and hopefully it'll be up and runnin on my next dive! the pics will look TONS better with it since they'll be brighter and the colors will be more vibrant! also i'm lookin into underwater video lights to see if i can find an inexpensive one to improve the quality of my videos in the future

    for some reason i guess i can only embed up to 5 vids in a single post, so here's the last one from the latest dive



    by the way i'm still dialing in my new light, which is why some of the videos don't seem lit up all that much. it has to do with range, angle of the light, etc and there's a bit of a learning curve to it, but i hope to get better at it over time

    just one video this time and no pictures, unfortunately my picture settings were messed up and i didn't want to mess around with them during the dive and eat up dive time. however, this one video is a compilation of 5 videos of the same thing.



    this manta ray hung out with my father and i for well over half the dive and was pretty much right under the boat the whole time. by far one of the best dives i've ever been on! also, i took duck's suggestion about adding music since this was just so epic.
