Today a friend sent me gorgeous images from a scuba diving trip in the Carribean: coral, sponge, many colored fish, etc.
Makes me embarassed to post my point and shoot underwater image taken here in Montana.
Because of ear pressure problems I decided scuba diving is not my sport and I'll stick to snorkeling on my vacations. Hence, I bought just a point and shoot waterproof Pentax Optio W-10 and tested it in an indoor pool.
My lesson learned is that it is harder than it looks, with the model moving, the photographer moving, the mask fogging up and the LCD screen limiting .... but kind of a fun experiment and the model wants to come back for a second try.
As a real "garage glamour" member, most of my stuff is assembled in my garage from scrap lumber and ordinary lights.
