AS E REMINDER
While diving I don't drag expensive cameras, balancing beams and large video lights.
Underwater I enjoy not being chased by the smartphone. I cherish the peace and tranquility.
That is why I only use a small action camera.
For me, green/blue/copper colored water may also reflected in the images.
I do not compensate for the underwater color reduction through filters.
The abstraction or discoloration of the images can even help to dramatize the statues or wrecks.
I am not looking for the perfectly colored photo without grain; just give me a raw artist impression. I want to feel the roughness of a drift dive.
NICE TO HAVE
Photos and videos can be a good support for diving analysis.
My students, buddies and even my mentors are happy with the memories.
Quite a few already used one of my photos as their new profile picture.
My official family name is COBBAERT; my nickname COBBE.
In our West-Flemish dialect a 'cobbe' is a spider.
I probably have more snaps of these lovely boat dwellers than selfies.
