Description

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 make for quite good photography subjects on a bad day, where nothing else is around or everything is hiding real well.

Recently I’ve been getting some decent photos of these little fishies, they are, very very shy and are not easily photographed in most cases. What I have been doing recently though, which has helped a great deal, is not approaching them when I spot one in the distance and waiting until they get distracted by food or cleaning duties. That is the perfect time to sneak up on them, getting close enough for your macro lenses to focus, not an easy task if you use a point and shoot, though DSLR users can probably snap these guys from 5 meters away in Macro mode with their fancy lenses, but if you are not that lucky, stealth and deception are your best bets to get close!

Emperor Shrimp

It's been a while since I've taken photos of shrimps but ticking something off the bucket list was worth the hell this little prick was putting me through. Annoyingly I found this Emperor at the end of one of our long beach dives in Phuket, you know like already 110 minutes in and about 40 bar le [...]

Algae Octopus At Kata Beach

If someone asked me what is the most annoying underwater critter to ID after taking a photo of it, hands down has to be Octopus. Other Cephalopods, Fishes and Crabs tend to have defining features which makes ID'ing them relatively straight forward, also because those animals can't change their appea [...]

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 w [...]
