Keri Wilk was in town and we went diving monday and tuesday.

Monday was at Catalina Island.

Here's a few shots I got, hope you enjoy them. Taken with my D300/Tokina 10-17mm, 2 Inon Z240's at F10-F13, 1/125th, ISO 200

Very good photos.
Love the armony of the #1... very warm...
Like the #7 also.

Did you use a dome? I´m not very used to dSLR, but with the 10-17mm couldn´t you got enought DOF to focus both foreground and background? Specially on #4 and #5.

But they look very fine too that way.

Man, #2 creeps me out. Looks to much like my mother in law.

thanks alot Miguel

yes, I used a dome. (you have to with a fisheye lens). When you focus very close to the dome and get a larger magnification ratio, the depth of field becomes relatively small. I shot at F10, I'll try it again next time at a much smaller aperture like F18 (which will give me a larger DOF) to see how it looks.

Scott,

Great photos! I particularly like #5, as it almost looks like the "hermi" is flying! And who, by the way, is diving without gloves!? I'm sure there's a good reason! My hands are numb just looking at that picture.

thanks Zig

No gloves? That's Keri Wilk - who also was the speaker at LAUPS last night. He doesn't like how gloves restricts his use of the camera.
