Underwater photography in a rainforest

Recommended Posts

Hey wetpixelators,

 

Its been a while since I last shared some photos.

 

I havent been able to dive at all where I am recently as the cost is super high. I live in Townsville, Australia which is one of the best spots to access the GBR and as such, the tourists inflate the diving cost.

 

So i've been doing a fair bit of freshwater river photography.

 

Here are some recent shots from the weekend. I found a river and just waded up it for a few hours to see what I could find.

These were really hard - slow shutter speed over/unders

It's good to see the variety in the images being posted these days.

 

#2, #3, and the very last photo (if a bit dirty!) are the most interesting, I think. Very defined objects, but the photos draw more attention to the formed shapes and lines than the objects themselves. Somewhat lacking of an obvious subject, but perhaps that makes them appealing...good for prints!

 

No crocodiles then? Would make a nice addition to #1 or #4! :vava:

Nice observation.

 

I would have to agree with that.

 

Also, the slow shutter speeds were rear synced for the flash!

I would think that might be a bit dangerous ...no? Maybe its all the great footage of crocs we get in the states but wading up a fresh water river would put me out of my comfort zone. Nice shots though :vava:

Thanks guys!

 

I do get a tad worried about crocs but the locals assured me there were none in the river system I was shooting..... still it was dark murky water :vava:

Cal, good to see you're still managing to get some photography done! Some of the creeks I've seen up here are fairly clear, and with some good fish life. Might have to give it a try myself!

 

I think I'll come down in a few weeks to do the Yongala, would be great if you could get out with us. I'll let you know.

 

Ry.

The 2nd one is just gorgeous. A masterpiece, that one.

 

Nice idea for that long exposure. Gives a new twist to that "misty stream in the wild" cliché.
