Description

Occasionally in underwater photography you do get a little too close to your subjects, the thrill of what you are doing can sometimes get the better of you and you think, just one more inch, just a little bit closer, most of the time, no problem, the critter will stay still, move off or give you a warning to take off. From time to time though, your subject may go step further and actually pretty much attack your camera rig or you.

Cuttlefish aren’t exactly viscous killers, but they definitely have a beak which can break shells and carve up fingers if you are not careful, so one day when I was taking shots of a mating pair of cuttlefish I got a little too close, the male took offense and had a good go at my camera, but you can’t flinch in photography, the shot is sometimes more important than personal injury and I decided since I’d already annoyed it, I’d just keep getting some photos of it’s more violent behavior as it latched onto my camera housing and had a few little thumps at the lens.

It may have been horrible diving this low season in Phuket, but that doesn't mean the fish are not still there, it just means it is about three times more difficult to find them and get a decent photo! Juvenile Yellow Box Fish are fairly common even on some of the less coral heavy sites, so they mak [...]

I've talked many times about the difficulty in using large video lights in conjunction with getting photos of Synathiformes, a fancy name for Sea Horses & their relatives. They really don't like bright lights! So how do you get shots like this without a strobe or two? If you have had experience shin [...]

Hands up if you like Seahorses, hopefully you like them in the way we scuba divers like them and not in the way the Chinese like them, you know, crushed up in your morning tea. Trust me when I say that dried Seahorse drinks won't make your willy any stronger. Back on topic, if you are a fan of th [...]

Long Nosed Hawk Fish

It pays to ask the guides if they have any favourite critters or special spots on a dive site where you might find something rare, potentially something you won't have to contend with other photographers for a chance at snapping. Whilst in Egypt we did just that on Elphinstone, a very popular div [...]
