Sometimes it is good just to turn off the phone and disconnect from WiFi. Mission accomplished. I just returned from St. John in the Virgin Islands, this trip was part vacation and part work. I shot a few stories while I was here, including a really fun surfer portrait that will be in an upcoming issue of Light It magazine, stay tuned!
The colors are hard to imagine in this area, a tapestry of aquas and greens. And the clouds are always interesting as well and help fill in the skies. I use a Singh-Ray LB Color Polarizer regularly, and it really helps the colors pop in scenes like this. This filter is both polarizer and enhancing filter, and my go-to polarizing filter.
I was also using my AquaTech housing for my D300s and 24-70mm lens. This housing lets me use longer lenses since they make ports for lens like the 24-70mm. Another thing I really like about this housing is it is much smaller than many dive housings, much easier to carry it on the plane. This sea turtle swam underneath as I was snorkeling, but my longer lens allowed me to get a close shot.
