    Certification Agencies:
    NAUI, YMCA, UC Davis Research Dive Program in 1971
    Dive History:
    Began diving in 1968. Most diving was in Monterey and at Point Lobos as well as the Sonoma and Mendocino coast. I shot with a Nikon F2A with an optical sportsfinder and a 24 and 55 macro lens. I began with flashbulbs and later moved to a Subsea Mk 100 strobe, and later a dual Ikelite 3oo and slave combination.
    In the mid 80's I dove Cozumel yearly for three years and then other pursuits pulled me away from diving.
    I moved to San Carlos, Mexico, on the Sea of Cortez, in March of 2016 and am getting back into underwater photography as I want to document what little remains of the marine life here.
    Certification History:
    Basic Certification through NAUI in 1968, followed by two semesters in the UC Davis Research Diving Program, which included Search and Recovery in zero visibility conditions.

    I want to approach this from a different angle than most. The hope is to master the reverse lens super macro technique as I love abstraction as opposed to the straight shot with lots of depth of field. I plan to do my testing on land, in controlled lighting situations, before attempting this underwater. Will be experimenting with constant lighting to see if this wan work with super macro. If not, I'll do strobe... but constant lighting would simplify things given the difficulty of photographing subjects with micro thin depth of field.
