Photography in Paradise

peeking from behind the sensor

I have been sorting through a huge pile of old images in my file storage and came across this image. It was the first image I had published in Surfer magazine. I had an old Pentax 35mm camera and borrowed small telescope from Jerry Dean who was a fellow diver and photographer of mine. We were in the Aqua Lords diving club together. I was able to adapt the scope to the camera and took this image. There were no long telephoto lenses to be had in those days so I had  to make do with what was available. The same thing plagued me when I wanted to take a camera underwater. I had to make my own underwater housing.surfing photo
