More and more people want to bring their cameras into the water. Some just want snapshots in the family pool while others want to document the underwater world for magazines, books and the internet. Join underwater photographer Larry Cohen as he talks about the use of cameras when used underwater.
Jacques-Yves Cousteau would have been 100 years old today. He was born on June 11, 1910, in southern France, and died on June 25, 1997, at age 87. He was a pioneer of underwater diving and filming. If he were still around today, I’m sure he would love to have a look around B&H’s SuperStore, which carries a full line of underwater photographic and video gear.
Most of my photographic interest involves working underwater. However, some places in the world are as interesting above water as below. A trip to Egypt would not be complete without visiting the Pyramids and other sites of the ancient world. Planning such a trip is a logistical nightmare, though, involving domestic flights and ground transportation. It is best to use a travel agent who specializes in your destination.
As I prepare for another dive off the Island of Roca Partida, everything is perfect, as it has been the past five days. It is a beautiful day, sea conditions are ideal, and I am thinking about the wonders I will photograph as this amazing trip is coming to an end. I check all my life support equipment and camera gear before boarding the Zodiac (rubber raft type boat).
