Lawrence THE HANDLE, which varies in length according to the height of its user, and in some cases is made by that user to his or her specifications, is like most of the other parts of the tool in that it has a name and thus a character of its own. I call it the snath, as do most of us in the UK, though variations include the snathe, the snaithe, the snead, and the sned.
You can review color temperature now if you need to. When creating a jpeg file, your camera always has to set a white balance. Either you can set it, or in "auto white balance" mode your camera will try to pick it for you, the best it can. Your strobe or flash emits light at a certain color temp, usually K, similar to sunlight, but it depends on the strobe.
Most strobes are between K and K. The color temp of the light will change as it passes through water, and reds are filtered out. If you are lighting up a close subject with your strobe or internal flash, your color temp should be set to Auto.
If you are not happy with the color you are getting, which may happen in low-end compact cameras, you can try setting it to sunny or flash, which are both around K. Setting the white balance to cloudy K when using strobes will usually result in photos that are a little too orange, unless the subject is a few feet away.
If you are not using your flash, you are shooting ambient light, and you want to set your white balance manually, like I explain in the following section.
If you are reading this guide, you will most likely want a camera that has manual white balance. Manual white balancing custom white balance When shooting ambient light in JPEG mode, with or without filters, you should manually white balance your camera every five or ten feet. When you do a manual white balance, you are basically letting your camera figure out what a neutral color is.
Your camera will let you take a shot of a neutral object, a white dive slate is perfect, but a white or silver scuba tank will do.
This will result in much more accurate colors than trying to correct the color later on, because JPEG format looses a lot of the color information.
Unless you are very shallow, reds will not be recoverable, but most other colors will be. Manual white balance works fairly well shallower than 30 or 40ft, deeper than that it has a smaller noticeable effect.
It can not bring back colors that have completely been absorbed by the water.
When shooting in RAW, you do not need to custom white balance underwater, but it is helpful to shoot a white or neutral object at different depths to aid in the white balancing in your raw post-processing program. Setting a custom white balance underwater To set a custom white balance underwater, follow the directions in your camera manual.
Usually, you will put your camera in manual white balance mode, and press a button. Then, the camera will wait until you point at a white, gray, or neutrally colored object. Press the shutter, and the camera will record the white balance at this depth.
Redo this process every ft for best results. Some people suggest using the sand or a neutral part of the reef, but will give less accurate results.
For best results, bring a small white dive slate with you. Remember to switch your white-balance back to auto when using the flash, otherwise your photo will look very red.
Some people will tell you to use the cloudy or underwater setting when taking ambient light shots underwater, but doing a manual white balance gives much better results.
The underwater mode will give better results, especially when shallow, and cloudy can be used as a last resort if there is no underwater mode, or if you are very deep.In Orwell's essay "Shooting an Elephant," an elephant in "must" escapes from its owner and terrorizes the streets of the town in Lower Burma.
