    Special underwater camera? Really great shots. The cuttlefish is very weird looking. Lol. Post more if you can.

    Yes & no. I dive with two different cameras. One is a Nikon D7000 DSLR with a housing, two strobe lights, & sometimes other lights attached. I use two different lenses with it, a fish-eye wide angle & a macro lens. The other camera is an Olympus TG-4 with a housing & two underwater video lights. Generally try to use the Nikon, but sometimes conditions require me to use the Olympus.

    All excellent shots. Nice teeth on the Moray eel! Were you very close to it?

    Thanks! And I was maybe 2-3 feet away. The three main rules of underwater photography: get low, get close, shoot up. :)

    I thought these were dangerous. Your next mission. Get a shot of a giant octopus.

    Only dangerous if you aggravate them. Will only attack if they feel threatened. I always move in for the shot slowly so I can get as close as possible without the fish feeling threatened.

    The fifth picture is an octopus I found on a night dive.
