  1. If you have not yet dived (dove?) at Komodo, you should really give it a shot; flying to Bali is quite cheap from many places now, then another quick flight to Labuan Bajo. The best months are April through August, once November hits the currents change, and can be so strong that visibility is quite limited. The north of the park tends to have the best sealife, which is generally avoided from November through February when dive shops go south. Go see the mantas, check off that bucket list item.
  2. I recently went to Lembeh Straits. This trip I decided to try my hand at videoing instead of photographing. I purchased a tripod and got some advice on how to shoot macro. This is my first go around with UW videography through the DSLR. This footage was shot with a Canon 5DMIV. Here is a link to my video:
  3. Raja Ampat season is coming to an end, so here is a short film celebrating some of the things that make it such an amazing place. The visibility may at times be challenging, but the scenery and wildlife is truly spectacular both above and below the waves. Altogether, I spent 7 trips in Raja Ampat aboard the Blue Manta liveaboard in 2017/2018. It's incredibly hard to try to condense that into 3 minutes, so my initial version was 6 minutes long. But most people's attention spans being what they are, here is a shorter edit. Hope you enjoy it! https://youtu.be/hUBSZQ-SphI Edit: Here is the 6 minute version as well:
  4. Here is my second project using FCPX: https://youtu.be/6u1IIMjMOWA I will greatly appreciate your constructive criticism and recommendations. In this video, I was trying to capture a beauty and abundance of marine life in Raja Ampat during our 9-day stay at Misool Eco Resort. My camera is Sony A7Rii with a 28mm and 28mm+fisheye lens. I used two Keldan Video 8X lights (11000 lm, 92 CRI), which are fantastic video lights. Thank you very much.
  5. My husband and I have spent the last few years doing filming projects in Indonesia and spent a fair bit of time in Cenderawasih Bay, Papua. It seems like more and more people are headed to the area to dive/swim with the whale sharks but we have noticed that it is a nightmare to find good information online about Nabire and getting out to the whale sharks. We wrote up this guide on our blog to hopefully help others navigate Nabire (always an adventure!). It is an amazing place to spend time with whale sharks. Best of luck to any one headed there!

  6. Back in September I concluded a liveaboard tip to the Banda Sea with a stop over in Ambon before flying home. I got in 12 dives in 3 days with Critterjunkies by divebluemotion. The dive shop is pretty basic and located on the shores of Laha. And, like most parts of Indonesia, sanitation is not at levels we experience in the west. So, the rocky beach was covered in plastic as well areas beneath the water. However, many magical creatures make this area home. The water was warm enough for comfort in a 5mm wetsuit for long muck dives and viz varied from 30-50 feet, although on the last day, after a harsh rain, viz deteriorated to 2-3 feet! The top of the critter list was the psychedelic frogfish (PFF) and I didn't expect to actually see one. But, our guide had found one several days earlier and we got to see one on the second dive! There is competition amongst the dive guides and operators to find PFFs so when went to look for the PFF, our guide had one diver visit with the PFF while the others were off at a distance so other guides or boats couldn't figure out the location. It was like a secret mission. However, the PFF was in shallow water and the surge and particulate made for really difficult shooting conditions. Here's a video of what I encountered in 12 dives. Comments and critiques welcome.
  7. We have a last minute availability of a space in a Budget cabin on the Mermaid 1 liveaboard for a trip to Komodo! This is with a male so it's best that the space would go to another male. The dates for this trip are 1 - 10 June 2018, in other words in around 3 weeks time from now. The Mermaid 1 is the flagship vessel of the Mermaid fleet, this 9 night trip will depart and return to Bali. Therefore, there are no domestic flights needed. All of the best spots in Komodo will be visited on this trip with amazing black sand sites in Sangeang, Manta Alley, Horseshoe Bay, and Castle Rock all on the itinerary. The space is 2900 Euro (approx USD $3473) plus a National Park/Harbour Fee of 150 Euro (approx USD $180, paid directly on the boat). The Komodo itinerary is a special one as there are really amazing encounters with mantas, big schools of fish, beautiful reefs for wide angle opportunities and world class macro life as well. A member of the Underwater Tribe will be on hand to help with all photo related questions. This is not a Photo Workshop but there will be plenty of photo talk and some casual presentations about the best way to capture stunning images in the Komodo area. For more information please visit: Komodo 2018 Or email us directly at info (at) underwatertribe.com
  8. Just posted a new guide to Raja Ampat Underwater (focused on staying at and diving from the homestays). It includes info on weather, dive conditions, how to get there, a chart on how to deal with marine hazards in a remote place, descriptions and a map of many of the dive sites throughout Raja - and a link to a new guide to the underwater creatures of Raja Ampat (it's starting small but will continue to grow and we are happy to include your submissions). Hope this is helpful to folks!!!

  9. A short video from my last trip to Komodo. This is possibly my 4th or 5th time in Komodo but I never get tired of it Shot on: Red Scarlet-W in a Gates Deep Weapon Housing 5k @ 48fps with a Sigma 12-24 F4 ART Edited and graded in Davinci Resolve 14.2 Hope you enjoy!
  10. One picture of the paradise of the macro, Lembeh
  11. I just finished going through the majority of my pictures from my wonderful trip to Lembeh this summer. I stayed at Critters at Lembeh Resort. What a wonderful resort and awesome guides. This is truly an awesome place for macro diving. Here are some of the pics from my trip: These are just a sampling of the pictures I took while there. More can be found at: http://www.seansydnorphotography.com/p487843184 I would also love to get IDs on critters I was not able to id. Please leave a comment if you know the id of the critter.
  12. Hi Have any of you good people dived at Weda Halmahera in Indonesia? I consider a trip in February with the first stop in Lembeh, and after some days in Lembeh travel on to Weda, but how is the diving there? On the dive center webpage is says that diving is great, but the very few videos and pictures I have found from the area shows another picture, with damage corals and not that many fish or other stuff. So I will really appreciate, if some of you that have visited the area or heard about it other ways, can tell me if it´s a good plan to go out there – or maybe if you have other ideas as an alternative to Weda – offcourse beside Bunaken J Regards Bent
  13. My new video of small critters from the Lembeh Strait and Anilao. Filmed with a Panasonic GH4 in a Nauticam NA-GH4 housing with either 2 x Keldan Luna 4X lights or 2 x FIX Neo 1000 DX SW II lights. I used an Olympus M.Zuiko ED 12-50mm f3.5-6.3 EZ lens and a Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 60mm f/2.8 macro lens. On some shots I used a Nauticam Compact Macro Converter CMC-1. Xit404 tripod. The UHD footage was downsampled to 1920x1080, allowing me to crop and zoom. Only the wonderpus shot was stabilized. All feedback is welcome. Particularly, are there any weak shots, or uncomfortable edits? I may submit a refined version to a festival or two.
  14. Hey Everyone - My husband and I have spent the last few years mainly in Indonesia and after quite a few hours lost to the hassle of trying to book domestic plane tickets online on sites such as Traveloka and pay with foreign creed cards, we decided to write up a quick article about what we have found on the different travel websites and what solutions we have found. Hope this helps someone else or at least sparks a discussion on here to share ideas. http://nomads-expeditions.com/2017/08/indonesia-booking-domestic-flights/
  15. I know this isn't still photography, but it's imagery! I wanted to share this short film that my husband and I made in Tangkoko Nature Reserve (focusing on Spectral Tarsiers & Celebes Macaques) while taking a break from diving on the northern end of Sulawesi, Indonesia. https://vimeo.com/217809929

  17. Hello everyone, I just finished up episode #10 of my 'Rolling in the Deep' series. This time we are seeing an overview of the diving around Bali Indonesia. Let me know what you think Enjoy! Dustin Or Youtube
  18. Hello kind Wet Pixelers. Has anyone done any diving in Borneo? If so, do you have any recommendations for diving locations? I am interested in animals large and small (I am travelling with a 15 mm and 60 mm macro lens) but am travelling on a budget. I am travelling for 5 weeks and am mainly planning to be on the malaysian part of Borneo but will venture to Indonesia if there is worth while diving! Many thanks, Matt
  19. Hello everyone, I wanted to share my most recent short film. This time focusing on the magical world of Bali Indonesia. This film was one of the lucky 10 minute films accepted into the San Diego Undersea Film Exhibition. It's got a good variety of dialogue, aerial shots, and of course underwater, macro and wide angle. Curious to hear what your feedback is. Any constructive criticism is always appreciated. Enjoy! Dustin

  22. Hello all, We just finished our spearfishing promoting video for Nihiwatu Resort, in Sumba, Indonesia. It was mostly shot with a Nikon D7200, (Tokina 10-17+ kenko 1.4) Nauticam Housing, Sea and Sea 9' acrylic dome, though it has also some Gopro 4 Black and DJI drone shooting. Water wasn't crystal clear, though... Here's the link:
