Hey guys, how are you this fine Wednesday? Did you realize that this September, this little ol’ blog will have been here for 4 years? Holy cow! We’ve covered a lot of topics too. In fact, to date (including this one) we’re at 358 blog posts. Holy cow!
I bring this up because there was one series of blog posts we did that I think we all had a lot of fun reading, or at least I did. I sure hope you did! That was the “getting to know the diver” posts. The year we did this, the goal was set at 52 blog posts that year featuring 52 divers. There were some weeks I wasn’t sure we were going to make it.
Again, I bring all this up because we’re bringing this line of posts back. Now, there won’t be a huge push to get 52 in a year or anything, they’ll be sporadic. We’re all a family here and it’s always fun, in my opinion anyway, to learn about our family. So I hope you enjoy this, and now I’m looking for new people to interview. And new in a sense that I didn’t include them in the 52 weeks. I would like new divers as well as seasoned divers to interview! I have my first one lined up, who wants to be number 2?
Now that we have our house keeping taken care of… Let’s look at today’s Product feature:
Sea Dragon Strobe.
In our Open Water Classes we learned that you lose color the further down underwater you go away from the sun and you lose those colors in the form of ROY G BIV (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet). So if you aren’t careful, you can be down 100 feet easily in the ocean, see something gorgeous, take a photo, and be disappointed with that photo because it comes out a grayish blue color. Bummer.
How do you avoid that? With the help of artificial light. Not only do they make underwater cameras, but there are also underwater flashes that attach to the camera body housing and you’re in luck, today we’re going to learn about one of those.
