Description

Ever done deep photography? It’s actually a lot of fun, recreationally with some extra training you are certified to dive up to 40 Meters, on this day I was training someone for that and we happened to sit down right next to this huge Jenkins Whip Ray, right at 40 meters. Down there, you have absolutely no color because the light is not only dim, but also filtered by the vast amount of water on top of you. Photo’s at that depth are a fight to get color into, if you don’t have powerful strobes or very strong video lights, don’t even bother.

This is a photo I really like because it highlights just how green and ugly the water can be in the background but how vibrant a subject can still be in the foreground, the bright purple of his inner gills, the yellow of his eyes and the fading out of his body colors into the murky blue/green water behind him. Scale in this photo is a little lost, but he was at least 2 Meters, tip to tail, he certainly didn’t have any worries down there, king of the castle and not interested in moving, which was good for me, making it relatively easy to get this shot before my customer kicked up all the sand he possibly could.

Great sleepy little place to visit, oddly it's also [...]

It's a lovely day when you can get close enough to normally skittish sea monsters to capture a photo of their eye sockets.
