A Few from The Philippines
Posted 07 September 2012 - 11:30 AM
All were shot with a Nikon D7000 in a Nauticam NA-D7000 housing and 60mm AF or 105VR AFS macro lens and a +5 diopter -- or a Tokina 10-17 behind a Zen 100mm dome. I thought I'd shoot with the Tokina + Kenko 1.4TC more, but just found it wasn't wide enough, or well-suited for the subjects. I also found the 60mm + diopter was the sharpest and best solution, as it allowed me to get very close to the small critters. I really liked the new Nauticam flip-out diopter lens holder, as it made switching to a more moderate length lens very fast and easy.
The diving and hospitality from Atlantis was great and I highly recommend their operations to all.

The first dive at Dumaguete yielded not one, but two Blue-Ringed Octos!

I like the head-on view. This gal was carrying eggs as well.

I think this is my favorite of the macro I took. Kind of unusual colors.

Slurp! We snorkeled with these guys for an hour or so one morning. They were the "tame" ones being fed krill.

Wall of Jacks. Just thousands of fish...
