I'd like some real information on doing this.  I know that they can be forced to hatch by using lights and I know that people have taken hatching shots set up like this.  This seems like not a great practice to me.  Thoughts?

 

And how about taking shots of them in the eggs but then flipping the coconut or shell or whatever back over to let them go on in peace & relative safety.  Harmful?  No biggie?

Humans are insane!
I've seen do it in Indo with the flamboyant.
I think the main focus point has to be: Education.
PADI and any other agency, instead to brainwashing students in buying equipment, should have at least one chapter focus in Marine Bio.
Because that is what divers are gonna see!
We need to educate'em in the first steps of diving!

and, just to answer: not biggie at all!

Just take pics of things how it is, leave the marine life be. I really thought this was common sense, or at least hoped it was.

Wishful thinking I fear.

 

On a recent visit to Puerto Galera we watched with horror as a photographer took his pics of a frogfish then smacked the fish off it's coral perch. Honest. He then moved along, found another and did the same thing. Incredible.

That is fucked up. If I saw that I don’t think I could have stopped myself from smacking the diver tbh.
