Nikon D90 with an Ikelite housing. Towards the end of 2011, I started selling off all of my camera equipment. Topside as well as underwater. I wanted to start fresh, and the only things I couldn’t part with were my Canon Powershot D10, and a few parts – odds and ends. After putting it off for years, I finally made the switch to Nikon. My current rig is set to two configurations, one for Macro, and one for wide angle:
I don’t usually do a lot of work in black and white, but I decided to give it a shot. I always tend to think of black and white and monotone photography as a last resort for photos that don’t work in color, but the truth is that they can really make a composition sing.

I arrive right on time, and lo and behold… The boat’s not there, and everyone is gone. Now anyone who knows me knows that 9:00 am is not my best hour of the day for higher level cognitive function.

Thought I’d post an update on some additional tips that were submitted to me from jcnavarrog through Flickr. He offered some useful tips as to how to best use dual stacked Inon UCL 165 M67 macro lenses that I thought were worth sharing. Camera Settings: 1.

My Inon UCL 165′s changed the way I shoot underwater photography, and I am so glad I got them to compliment my G9. I almost didn’t buy them, but after hours and hours of research, I finally decided to roll the dice. It really was a roll of the dice too, since I could hardly find any information on how to use dual-stacked Inon lenses, and what they actually did. I only knew that other photographers were using them with much success. I couldn’t find a good guide on exactly what they did, how to use them, or how to attach them. I just had to put it all together for myself. Hopefully this guide will help those of you who are looking into it get the information you need with much less effort.
