Al Bruton and I had our annual underwater photo class in his pool for the SAMP members. We brought in a lot of equipment for the students. We had the PhaseOne camera with the P65+ digital back and the 28mm lens in the Nauticam NA645DF housing. The 60 mega pixel digital images really show what high resolution and wide dynamic range can provide in an underwater image. We also had Nikon D300s, Canon 5D, 7D, 5DMK2 and a Hasselblad H38 Superwide cameras and housings with Ikelite strobes. For some of the students Al taught basic underwater scuba lessons and I helped with the Camera systems. Johnson Yang also pitched in with sweating up the housings and changing media cards for them. Several underwater models showed up and the students had a plaits taking photos underwater. Brent and William had their computers set up so the students could see their images on Apple laptops. Brent used Capture One software for the PhaseOne system. Here are some images of the event. It was great to see all the smiles and hear the impressive comments by the students. It is a lot of work to put this one but worth the results we see in the students.
