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!

Glass Shrimp – Well That’s What I’m Calling It Anyway

If you can't find a door make one, it's a favourite saying of mine I apply to photography, essentially, if you can't find interesting critters to photograph, try taking interesting photographs of critters that most people will dis-regard. The dive in question was a muck/macro dive with not much goin [...]

The Pygmy Pipe Horses Of Kata Beach

Up until last month, I had seen maybe 3 Pygmy Pipe Horses in over 8 years of scuba diving, in fact, Pygmy Pipe Horses were fairly mythical and rare for the waters of Thailand. I remember the only place we ever found them with any certainty was Richelieu Rock Similan Islands and the Surin Islands. [...]
