I took my new Tokina fish eye lens for a test dive. It was quite murky and the swell was strong. Yet I am quite pleased with the results. The lens allows to get closer to the subjects than a normal rectilinear lens … which is so important underwater. Because of my dome setting I […]
As the ocean is getting cooler people are disappearing from the water. That means it’s quieter underwater, fish are more relaxed and inquisitive.
