Photos of the Week – Black and White

June 29, 2010 · Posted in art, photography, photos, photos of the week, projects · Comment 

With the advances in digital photography and the cost of high quality cameras so low, everyone has become a photographer. However, few realize what it’s like to shoot  with film and fewer still, to shoot with actual black and white film.

The development process was the best part because you didn’t get to see your photos until you hung up your role of film on the drying line. Often times, you’d forget you even took some of your shots and be pleasantly surprised. There was no looking at your LCD screen after every shot, there was no deleting bad pics so that you could shoot more on your already full memory card. Different films yielded different colors, grain and style, which can now be duplicated in a computer, but it’ll never be the same. This week’s photo challenge was an attempt to force everyone to think about shooting for a purpose rather than for an edit in Photoshop later.

Photos of the Week – After Hours

June 1, 2010 · Posted in art, photography, photos, photos of the week, projects · Comment 

Sam and I started a photo project. It’s pretty simple: a theme and a set of photos (3-5) taken that week. This week’s theme was “After Hours.”

I always take photos, but rarely do I have time to post them. Since I have peer pressure now, it pushes me to go out, take some more photos with some thought behind it and finally post them.

Here’s Sam’s After Hours post.

Isla Fuerte – Bushnell Scuba Dive

February 22, 2010 · Posted in photos, scuba, travel · Comment 

Time in: 13:18
Time out: 13:58

Max Depth: 54 feet
Avg Depth: 39 feet

The water temperature was a warm 84 degrees (according to the dive computer) while the air was only around 80. At those temperatures it’s so nice to jump in the water. Even so, Ana gets cold while diving and wore a 3mm wetsuit.

The dive site  was a 50 minute boat ride away towards the north west part of the island where the sea floor raised up to a depth of about 60 feet. It’s basically an underwater mountain (see map below) with a gorgeous reef that sits on top of it (see the sketch by our divemaster in the photos below).

The dive yielded gorgeous reef formations with spots of white sandy sea floor. The sandy floor allowed us to set down in a place that wouldn’t harm the reef so we could get better look at some of the sea creatures such as a Caribbean lobster and various plant life.
