Photographer: Todd Bretl

Gear: Nikon D7000Tokina 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5, Nauticam housing, and Sea&Sea strobes

Settings: 1/160 @ F9, ISO 200, 14mm, Nikon D7000

Backstory: I captured this image in the Bahamas. A few of us were shooting tiger sharks down at about 100ft on a sandy clearing. We had lured them in with egg crates full of dead fish — keeping the fish in the egg crates attracted the sharks, but kept them from actually being able to get and eat the fish, and then get bored and leave. Unfortunately one rather large tiger shark was able to crack an egg crate open, spill the fish, and cause a complete frenzy. That frenzy stirred up a whole lot of sand and we needed to get out of there because the poor visibility created a dangerous situation. I took this image as I was back peddling out of that mess. You can see one of the tiger sharks in the background.

Lenstag Releases “Text to Check” Feature to Combat Gear Theft

Lenstag Releases “Text to Check” Feature to Combat Gear Theft

Lenstag is a new service that collects serial numbers from your lenses and cameras and keeps them in a registry to be flagged in the unfortunate event that they get stolen. It’s easy, it’s free, and is a great supplement to your existing insurance plan or personal security methods. By locking down a serial as belonging to its owner, the reselling and pawning of stolen gear becomes increasingly discouraged and it is now even easier to flag hot items. read more…

6a0105371bb32c970b019aff8ef803970c Photographer: David Rankin Gear: Canon 6D SLR Body, Canon 50mm f/1.8, NeoTrigger Settings: 6 seconds @ f/3.2, ISO 100 Backstory: After a long and very active monsoon season, the last summer storms blew by heading off to the east and zapping the ground as they wound down with the day’s heat dissipating. I was able to capture this shot under the light of a bright moon which nicely lit up the top part of the storm as a very powerful bolt lit up the rest. This was shot in Southern Utah close to Lake Powell. The plant in the background is the Navajo Generating Station – a coal fired eye sore that looks rather neat at night. Stars are also visible in the shot. A great composition that I was happy to have featured as an EPOD on October 14ht, 2013. I shot this picture using the new NeroTrigger from NeroTrigger.com. I am very satisfied with this trigger and how well it performs. It has 6 built in functions including sound, lightning, time lapse, HDR, laser, and DIY.
