Underwater Pics.

The pictures taken and prints presented here are of very poor quality . I rented an underwater camera and was talked into using a wide angle lens. The strobe would not give enough light at the angle of the lens width to give good results.
E.G. at say 5 ft distance away from the subject, the lens had a width of 10 ft. The strobe would only light up 5 ft of width. The picture centers were over exposed, the next outer ring was Ok, the outside was underexposed.

Also, I had the local drug store scan the negatives to get the jpg digital images presented here. This turned out to be of a lower quality than if I had scanned the prints myself. Unfortunately, there was not enough time for me to scan the prints. I may try to re-scan some as time permits.

Many of the prints are of ranges farther than 10 ft. At the depths we were at [ 50 - 70 ft], you get the typical color loss and everything is BLUE! So, it was very difficult to try to shoot a picture of the wall going down 50 ft to a ledge and then another 100 ft or more to some sand. There just was not enough light.
