I’ve had some new regulators I’ve wanted to test out for a while so last Sunday I made my way down to Ocean Optics Underwater Photography stage to test them out. Of course I couldn’t just test out my regs, I brought along my camera to take photos of the plastic fantastic fake reef they set up occasionally in their movie tank! I thought it might be an issue that I hadn’t had time to gear up my strobes but they have a huge topside lamp on the side of the pool to make quite realistic sunshine when underwater. Here are some of my photo – all “available” light.
Here’s a few of me taken by Mike on his iphone – from the side of the pool
If you’re thinking of heading down there to check it out I would highly recommend it. Steve and Mark and really nice guys. My advice, to avoid disappointment, is to phone before you go as they only put the reef in when they are teaching underwater photography classes.
