    prskate2 :

    Thanks for the helpful hints! I will try to impliment them the best I can. It was harder to do since everyone was trying to stay up with the dive guide. I was just taking photos at random hoping they would turn out well, but I agree getting eye level with them makes a better photo. I have a few here in Panama City Beach, Fl that turned out better when I took my time and set the shot up. I do have an external strobe and I am learning which shots take more or less light.

    First dives with new RMM.

    My first dive trip with my RMM. Really had a ball. Just came back from Curacao. I'll have more soon, as soon as I can get caught up.

    One problem I had, and not with the camera. Being a CA Kelp diver I'm used to being able to get down on the bottom, grab ahold of anything. But on a beautiful coral reef one can't just grab. It was really hard getting into a position for many shots. So tips welcome.

    JD: Try to edit your posts so you don't have to keep double posting and triple posting. The Mods get pissed. I really like the first photo you put up. Very much. Much improvement. As for your friend with the bubbles there is no way he will get any color from that for away. Even with a strobe, from that distace he will still be blue. It's a pain but I got used to it.

    bmchugh: VERY, VERY NICE!!!

    Most of the distant shots of divers I'd turn off the flash. Generally only left it on if there was something in the foreground I'd want to add some light to for color.
