Photography - Welcome

by Peter Schulz

Abstract: The purpose of this section of the site is to convey what I've learned while venturing into the world of digital underwater photography. My conclusions are that to get the most out of any underwater digital camera setup, one has to learn more than point and shoot. And learning to use a digital darkroom to touch up photos is both necessary and rewarding.

About the Author

For those of you who don't know me I offer the following. Peter Schulz by Ed Tichenor

  • I know a lot about diving. I have been diving since 1987 and have logged over 3500 dives. During this time period I certified over 500 PADI open water divers. I also taught tech diving including cave diving and mixed gas diving through Trimix.
  • I know a lot about computing. In a prior life, I worked for IBM for 30 years. And I stay current by developing web sites including this one.
  • I knew next to nothing about photography. I started taking underwater pictures in April of 2002. Prior to this experience, I hadn't owned a camera since I was 8 years old.

    However, I have taken a lot of pictures. During 2002-2004  I took over 30,000 pictures on over 900 different dives. In the process I learned a lot.

That said, the following outline details what I know that might be of use to someone starting out in underwater photography or making the switch from a film camera to a digital camera.


I cant stress enough how much your settings page has helped me.

All newbies with this camera and strobe setup should READ YOU FIRST!!!

Thanks so much!
