yes go ahead, i did my advanced padi a couple of years ago in the maldives. and it was good fun as there are some diiferent kinds of dives you have to do. i think it was one by night, one wreck and one with navigation.
i havent been diving for years now , but hopefully i will start again this year

didnt take any pictures underwater. did u ?

Hi mim, it's one of the ones I am planning to do to get my advanced.... have never done this before though. I think the isa's do quite a bit of underwater photography though!

Hey Sam, yeah I know PADI seem to do a lot of courses I would love! another is the wreck diver its a shame I dont get to do it more often England isn't fantastic cos of the cold waters and its pretty expensive! although I might do a dry suit course here just for the experience!

as for the Isa's I'll wait and see if they notice my thread...

Hey mim!

As we progress with our training, we are looking at the Naturalist and the UW Photography as specialties. BUT, we haven't done the UW Photo training as of yet.
We just love playing with out camera at the moment. We're not good at it, and have realized we need to invest in the external flash attachment. We're in the "experimental" stage - learning what works and doesn't on our own.

This shot was taken with one of the $5.00 disposable UW cameras - go fig!

Since you will probably take the course before we do - let us know how it goes!!!

I'm still struggling with where to go!
