Just beautiful!! Ive only been snorkeling, wish i could go scuba, but i cant actually swim that well and get severe asthma so diving down a few meters is enough for me lol, enjoyed it a few times but i just remeber the constant current sweeeping u meteres back and forth and the colours seemed washed out from the fish...but how far down do u need to go to get these amazing photographs?? The colours and sharpness are really good, we tried underwater phtography and hoped to go to the red sea when Egypt calmed down a bit. do u have extra lighting equipment? is it just a flash or normal lighting in bright sunlight?
Unfortunately my underwater photography (and scuba-diving) ceased when I moved from the tropics. Somehow the North Sea (full of... I shudder to think what) doesn't hold the same pull as the South China Sea. Swimming with Sun Fish was probably the highlight of many memorable dives.
Never got into underwater photography, always felt that to do it right it would be too expensive.
I have done Egypt, great diving!
For me the most memorable things from my diving trips were manta rays on Yap and seeing a whale shark in Kenya.
Hi Meredith! thank you! Your photo are very nice! I am happy to see that other people like sea life like me. You can made amazing photo also just by snorkeling. most of amazng subjets are close to the surface where coulours are bright!
Roberta -- to post your images into any blog, just go to the image on your site and copy (cntrl+C) the image link just above the "PDF Sales Sheet" link in the lower right side of the page and paste it with whatever you want to say into the blog. You have to use the keyboard copy option because the FAA site uses a java script that prevents a right-click mouse copy.
BTW, your photos look great as does all the photos here.
I always wanted to take underwater macro/stereo photos of the many wonderful critters and their environment on the coral reef when I lived in the Keys -- but I never could find the equipment or the money to do it. Perhaps one day maybe...
yes, sea life is so beauty that underwater photo could be just great!
You know? you don't really need to have very expensive equipments. Of course with certains equipements and big expirience you can make fantastic pictures but you can made amazing pictures just with basique equipements!
My pictures that I have posted are taken with a basique water proof camera with an additional water proof case. No external flash or strobes.
You need to chose very bright colored subjects (like nudibranches) but often these subjets are very little ( few cm) and hard to see.
This is the most difficulty I have while diving : to see the little subjects and to take the right photo.
I tried to make a picture of a pigmy horse, i will share this picture when I will come back from Ivory Cost to show you this amazing little creature!
Wow, amazing pictures Jean Noren! Thank you!
Yes I agree with you, anemones give to clow fishes a nice back ground. transparency, white and bright coulours and shadows make clown fishes pictures very special!
Hy coliń ,welcome on board! So you are dive instructor in philippines! And you teach underwater photography?! Gréât, i plan to go there next year for holidays, give me your diving club name and location it could be interesting for me!
It would be great to meet a fellow FAA artist in person! I am with "Octopus Divers", Sabang Beach, Puerto Galera, on the island Mindoro. If you need any help or information about diving in the Philippines, don´t hesitate to send me an e-mail.
