Do you love exploring beautiful natural places? I do! Do you love traveling light and capturing nature’s best with compact camera gear? Me too!
If you’re adventurous, curious, outdoorsy – and you appreciate a good laugh now and then – I’d love to stay in touch by sending along quick bits of beauty, tips for shooting on-the-go, and some stuff to make you smile. With summer racing to a close I’m feeling like it’s time to ramp up the fun. Make sure to sign up for our newsletter in the sidebar.
Seeing as my #1 love is free diving and #2 is filming life~in~flow~motion below and above the surface, I’ll usually include a super-short video that highlights the subject at hand. If you’re not sure what’s in store, here’s a sampler of posts that will be coming your way…
“FREE DIVING THE DEEPEST POOL IN THE WORLD”
It’s Near Venice, Italy. 131 feet deep. 92º thermal spring-fed water. Super-friendly italian free divers. The pool (& spa) is open to all. Can’t wait to go back!
“FISH QUIRKS: THE PERSONALITIES OF MAINE’S FRESHWATER FISH”
Bass love to get close… Sunfish love the lens enough to eat it… Perch love a parade… Trout are nervous… Eels are chill… Snappers want to be left alone…
“TIPS FOR STAYING COMFY & SANE WHILE FILMING NATURE SOLO WITH COMPACT, PACKABLE GEAR”
The value of stadium cushions, soft foam lens caps w/elastic cords, a wide brimmed hat, ‘trash bag ground cloths’, bungee cords, ziplock bags and more.
“FILMING IN MAINE’S TOP 10 CLEAREST LAKES & PONDS”
There’s more than 10,000 here. Three of the clearest are in Acadia National Park. This is the very first HD footage ever gathered from these gems in Acadia (that are water supplies and don’t otherwise allow swimmers.)
“PAKPOD IN VENICE, ITALY: PACKING LIGHT FOR A FUN DAY OF SHOOTING ON-THE-GO”
Capturing great shots and clips quickly with Smartphones, GoPros and a Pakpod is easy. The place is absolutely stunning – morning, noon and night.
“FREE DIVING HAWAII WITH PILOT WHALES & OCEANIC WHITE TIP SHARKS IN 9,000 FEET OF WATER”
‘White Tips’ are the 3rd most aggressive of 470 species. They behave like bar room drunks. Learn why you need to ‘stand them down’ when they swim at you.
So, that’s what’s on the way in the e-newsletter. Also, look for exclusive offers, discount coupons, new products and free e-guides filled with useful tips for getting your best shots.
If you have any questions or comments, I’d be happy to answer them. Just drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hope to see you in the woods or in the water!
All the best, Steve Underwood
