Good morning friends, we had another great “Blue-Light” night dive last evening which started at around 7:00 and lasted a good solid hour. Getting the camera and housing ready for this dive took a few hours during the day but like always the work is worth the trouble. I am currently using a Nikon D-800, 105 2.8 macro and a full Ikelite setup which includes a custom three strobe setup. Because of the amount of light that is needed for this kind of wild photography Ikelite made me a special cord to run three of their DS-160′s and it works great! All my blue-light gear was purchased through Night Sea (link below) which includes the yellow lens we wear over our masks, the blue, hand-held search lights, the blue covers for the strobes and the yellow covers for the lens although last night I just used a 52mm yellow screw-on glass filter instead of the plastic strap-on type. For those of you wanting something new and exciting from your dives, get yourself a blue-light search light and the lens, it will change the way you look at the reef forever MORE: MORE
