Seldom Seen Sand Harbor - Lake Tahoe, Nevada

Portfolio & Services


--The Shot--

I am off to my last art show of the season here in Santa Cruz out at Long Marine Lab, but I wanted to throw a quick shot up from my recent "fun" at Lake Tahoe. On the last day, Kendra and I went snorkeling in our drysuits and snapped a bunch of over / under shots. This proved much more difficult than expected, and I am much more prepared for next time. This was definitely a learning experience and more of a trial. But I have a lot of ideas for future trips here using my underwater gear!


Hope everyone is having a great weekend!


--The Gear--

Nikon D300

Tokina 10-17mm @ 10mm

1/160 sec, f14, ISO 200

Aquatica Housing and Megadome Port

Single Ikelite DS160 strobe


--Software & Processing--

Not much here. Imported to CS5 with ACR. Slight clarity, vibrance and saturation boost. Clicked the "auto" button and liked it enough for all the other things. Once in CS5, some light cloning of spots in the sky from my dome port. Selective noise reduction via Noise Ninja and sharpening via Nik Sharpener Pro. Custom action for the web downsizing.
