Solo Rebreather Dive & Macro Photography

September 18th, 2008

Today I did my first solo CCR dive, and brought along the new Nikon D300/Subal ND30 rig. It was also my first time using the 105mm macro lens (and accompanying port). I didn’t get fantastic shots, but it was one of the most challenging, complex dives I’ve ever done, simply because there was so much to think about (both camera and CCR) and no buddy to depend on or ask for help. Without a dive buddy, even simple things like getting in and out of the water with bailout and deco bottles while holding the camera and fins, or getting new drygloves to seat properly, are all much harder. After the dive though, I was very satisfied that I was self-sufficient enough to do everything on my own.

The dive was pretty enjoyable one. 85 minutes of bottom time on the COPIS Megalodon CCR. Maximum depth was about 110fsw, near the I-beams at Seacrest Cove 2.

Here are the shots!
