Sessile Invert Shots

18 June 2007 - 01:49 AM

Howdy,

Tried to get some good sessile invertebrate shots whilst diving last week. These shots were taken just off a pier in Melbourne, Australia.

Let me know what you think

A yellow ascidian of some kind

This shot took me ages to get the shutter speed right to capture the wave action whilst maintaing the colour

A macro shot of some sort of anemone. Tried to capture the way they stretched on for ages but im not sure if it worked

and finally, another tunicate shot with the sun behind it.

Darker Photography

Hey guys,

Almost all underwater photography these days is aimed at bringing out the most colour and vibrancy in a subject. With that in mind I went out the other day to try and capture subjects using as little light and colour as possible whilst trying to still convey the beauty or profoundness of the subject matter.

Hope you enjoy these shots,

not sure if I succeded so i'd love to hear your thoughts on them,

got some cool shadows on this fish. This is was proberbly the best shot of the dive

A fish silhouette just below the surf break

and lastly, kelp lashing about in a surge. A bit more artistic than normal for me but I still like it

Tube Worm Shots

Hey guys,

got 2 new lenses, the inon ucl-165 macro lenses. I screwed them together and got some pretty cool results.
This was my first dive with a lense so it was an interesting experience not being able to shoot everything that took my fancy.

my rig is an sp-350 with an inon d2000
