After five months of not getting my much needed #VitaminSEA, I was able to tag along with two friends on a day trip to Sombrero Island. We did a total of three dives on Saturday and although I’ve had the RX100 for more than two years, this was the first time I actually went all-out with wide angle photography. The previous dives always had some technical malfunction with the strobes and I wasn’t sure whether it had more to do with wrong prepping or actual hardware failure — my left strobe always had issues. As it turns out, the strobe wasn’t set to shoot as slave.
So as a written reminder:
M1 (not ETTL)
Slave Function: On
The drive to Anilao was non-eventful, but the once familiar feeling of being able to drive alone to Batangas from Paranaque on a weekend was very liberating. Rather than just play mobile bingo for fun, I was able to listen to my current audiobook (Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell).
Here are some photos from the trip. I shoot using a Sony RX100 Mark II with two old YS110 alpha strobes. I’ve attached a wide angle wet lens on a Nauticam housing.
