Underwater Kona, HI
« on: August 22, 2016, 07:51:55 pm »

Here are some of my favorite images taken while beach diving off of areas around Kona, HI.  I found a very good deal on a brand new Olympus EM5 and placed it in an Olympus Underwater Housing.  All underwater images were made using the Olympus 8mm pro and an Olympus Dome Port.

I was raised by Triathletes so I've had a number of trips to Kona over the years. Love that place!
You photos are very nice and especially the last! Good idea to use that camera and housing if the price was right. I've had some sticker shock looking at custom housings for my existing cameras and I'm not sure I'd want to risk them anyway.

Aloha,

The manta rays on the big island are a treat as well, also the volcano is going off pretty good now!

I went on your site, there are some really nice pieces there.
Is there a way to tell which are done with film and which are done with digital?

Some of the pieces seem to have a lot more pop and be lots sharper than others, this is very noticeable in images from the meadow,are they mostly digital?

These are lovely, and like others, I particularly like the first and last.  The 8mm is absolutely working for these shots!

+ 1 ...apart from the lovely photographic quality, the dolphins combined with the hue of cyan/turquoise water exude a sense of ballet-like calmness.

Nice set.
