Michael Andrew (02.21.12, 9:32 PM): I love to travel as light as possible, usually its just the one black bag. Unfortunately being in the water requires a lot of extra equipment, as well as training and practice to use. Shooting underwater can be a little stressful. Parts of the trip were absolutely enjoyable, lugging all the gear wasn't so bad and well worth it to get the shots I needed. Some parts of the trip were stressful, but I did my best and am satisfied and happy I went.
