Dear UW photography experts,
I would like to ask for your views on Wakatobi. I am considering joining an UW photography group for a trip to Wakatobi Dive Resort in Nov/Dec and I wanted to get a better understanding of what to expect.
I am an experienced diver (600 dives in all kinds of environments, technical and cave trained) with several years of UW photography experience (~150 UW photography dives). 99% of my photography to date has been macro photography but I would like to start learning how to shoot wide-angle. I have been to well known macro locations such as Anilao, Puerto Galera, Cabilao, Lembeh, Bali, and Sipadan.
I am looking for a place with excellent macro life and reasonable wide angle opportunities.
My questions are:
1. How would you rate Wakatobi's diving relative to some of the places that I mentioned above and also relative to places like Komodo, Ambon, Raja Ampat?
2. Are the conditions in Wakatobi conducive for underwater photography? Are there lots of walls and currents? (I don't particularly like walls or currents for macro photography)
3. What do you think of Wakatobi Dive Resort?
