Description

I’m not the biggest fan of black water photography, mostly my prejudice stems from it’s overuse in underwater photography, I really enjoy getting colorful or interesting backgrounds in my shots, but I also can’t deny that black water backgrounds have there place in our world. Whip Coral Commensal Shrimp are great ways to practice black water backgrounds, if you can face the subject with the ocean in the background you can do black water shots without the use of strobes. If you have strobes you can Google how to do it.

I make shots like this by positioning so the ocean is my background, dropping my shutter speed and positioning my light in a way that causes the light to drop off quickly once it passes the subject, sometimes I get a very dark blue background and the slightest tweak in Photoshop will correct that for me. If you think people don’t use Photoshop in this industry you’d be mistaken.

This was also a great find because there are actually two Shrimps in this shot, notice the little baby one to the left of the big one. I don’t know enough about Commensal Whip Coral Shrimps to claim that it is a juvenile, it could be a smaller mate, or just another smaller Commensal Shrimp, but I’d like to think they are a happy little Commensal Shrimp Family.

Hypselodoris Pulchella Nudibranch

This Nudibranch is one of the most commonly mistaken or mis-identified Nudi's. Novice photographers who do not bother to really look up the names of their Nudi's have led to this one commonly being called 'Goniobranchus Annulatus', this is a real pain. So just for reference. The next photo is a [...]

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 [...]

Bit of a throwback Thursday for me today, so here is some full frame Sea Horse love. I was sorting through my Sea Horse photos as I'd been approached by Nature Research magazine to provide some pictures of them, but they specifically wanted non artistic stuff, which means something more like this, w [...]

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 [...]
