Amazing installation!  Do you use a filter on your GoPro while diving?

Thanks.

Usually, yes, a red filter. This time, no.

Have you always been into photography? And if so, throughout your trips and adventures, what has been your source of learning and getting better at your photography skills?

Photography is always something I wanted to better understand, but never had the time.

With the advent of SF, the purchase of a new mirrorless camera, and lightroom, I've gotten more into it. And I quite enjoy it.

DO's have helped, YouTube has helped, ddf has helped. Get knowledge from everywhere!

Oh, I vaguely remember that thread. But why does it matter about cameras if swimming tzniusly? I mean, we both wore bikinis, and specifically asked them to set up cameras, but just curious.

your trip looks amazing. I want to go here one day. Why did you decide Bora Bora over Moorea? Both have IHG properties

While I know Moorea does have some die-hard fans, to me, from my review, there was no contest which is prettier.

Ya I'm not sure where I would pick, seems like a difficult decision, but as I mentioned before, your pictures are stunning and making me want to book ASAP.

Availability opens up at end of schedule and close-in.
