Description

It is always a beautiful day when you find Sea Horse while diving, they are such weird little underwater specimens that you can’t help but sit and stare, occasionally I remember to take photographs of them. Sygnathiformes are notoriously hard critters to take quality photos of, they have a habit of turning away from lights, strobes and divers, so all you get is their back, I have a strong feeling even the noise from our regulators disturbs them.

So when photographing Sea Horse’s you need to breathe quite, and only light them up at the last possible second. My usual behavior when I find them is to look for something similar, so if it is in a sea fan, do all my aperture and lighting settings well away from the subject, set everything up before I go in for the shot and only light them in the instant I’m pulling the trigger on the photo. This tends to be the only sure fire way with Synathiformes to not disturb them and force them deeper into their immediate environment, they like to hide when the lights come out.

What do you get when you combine, clear waters, lots of sunshine, good divers & tonnes of fish! You get great photos of course, well maybe, a few things still need to come together, like the fish moving out of the way, not crashing into coral behind you and students who stay out of the backdrop. Let [...]

Sharing Space The Moray Way

When I took this photo I immediately labelled it 'why can't we all just get along' and posted it to Facebook. It was actually one of my most popular photos, I think when you capture something unique under the water like these two viscous predators sharing a small space and getting along, you have to [...]
