It's in a Cornish mine, but I'll Get Lynched if I saw which. The cornish are a bit overly secretive about their mines

Before, during and after. Yesterday's play in Titan. Great to get back underground with the camera, and with a fantastic group of cavers.

Not intended to be a masterpiece. Just great to be back digging twice a week.

A (sort of) enjoyable trip in the Mossdale the other week. Sadly it's not all this size!

Chunky - that's a great picture taken in Witches Cave II. (It's not Shuttleworth Pot by the way - that's the name of the excavated section which now provides a dry entrance to Witches Cave II.)

The main reason for my posting though is to ask about that picture of your photographic gear, pre-Titan. There are three items next to the right hand side of the large orange cardboard box. Are they video lights? Just interested to learn if you're using these, rather than flashguns, for still photography. (That Titan picture's a cracker too.)

Apologies, I stand corrected  :thumbsup:

The torches are BLF Q8's, cheap and powerful. For Titan I used them to light up the chamber to see what I wanted to photograph.

I don't often use a tripod, but they are great at painting in area's on slightly longer exposure shots. I don't really shoot just with fixed light or light painting, you'd do better seeing if you could get advise off of Nicky Bayley or Steve Sharp for that style of photography, both get amazing results without the need of heavy camera kit.

The only time I use them in photography is in mixed lighting. The shot attached has light painting from 2 of those torches which have painted in the stream way, ceiling and the right wall. You can see the colour balance is slightly different if you look closely.

Where's that photo taken? Given the shorts, I'm assuming it's China or Mulu... I'd guess Clearwater if it was a Wezzit.

For interest this image was taken using a couple of underwater video lights and an Olympus TG6 set on Program.  It shows my granddaughter on her second caving trip.

Thanks for the advice Chunky. (I've always been impressed by your camera work.)

Lovely pic MROdoc.

For purely record work of dig sites the Skyray torch works well if you don't mind shadows. On my own here so 12 second timer on Programme with TG 4 giving f2 at 1/30th sec on 200 ISO. Skyray off to side right.
