New work from Kirk Irwin, shot in Maui:
I dive whenever I go out there and have been looking for a camera to use in the water. I’m hesitant to buy a dive housing, as living in Columbus, Ohio, there isn’t much diving and I don’t really shoot anything water related. So I picked up an old Nikonos-V and shot some film. Aside from having TTL, a light meter, and being rated to 165’, it’s rather lo-tech. It’s zone focus camera with a view finder mounted above the lens. So there is really a sense of shooting blind. The camera is a blast to shoot with.
