Your Daily Lembeh Photo

Recommended Posts

Well, i have been inspired by Kaj and his Lembeh videos so i thought i would start a "daily" Lembeh photo thread :D

 

not exactly sure if i will update it daily but Daily Photo sounds better than "somewhat daily, more like when i remember and get around to it" as the title to a thread :P

 

Here you go: A frog fish portrait using a 105mm lens at f13 and 1/30 of a second. The selective lighting comes from me holding my fingers over my YS120 strobe (Single, the strobe, not me) This is an older photo so is with my Nikon D70 and Aquatica housing

Kaj! TK of course :)

Matt.. yes, come on over to Indonesia, we can show you a few of those, had 4 on one dive the other day :(

 

Time for some super macro, this is with the 105mm and a 2x TC. Again lit with one strobe and my hand covering most of it to get just a kiss of light on the nudi (Risbecia tryoni for you nudi geeks :P )

Thanks Steve and Karen..

 

Karen, haha.. well, i guess i am as single as the strobe :)

 

Here is one from the East side of Lembeh, not too many people have dove there as everyone wants the muck. But East Lembeh is a hidden treasure of healthy hard coral and blue water :(

Damaged but still going strong!

This little cuttlefish is missing half his tentacles, obviously bitten off by a fish of some description. But he still had an attitude!

Thanks John, glad you are enjoying, thanks for keeping up with it.

 

For today we have one of the less exotic species around here but with a patient specimen it can be photographed it an interesting way.

 

Lizard Fish Portrait, look at those teeth :)

Usually that photo is taken with a horizontal orientation. It looks different vertical and I like the extra negative space.

 

Thanks for posting!

Mike I'm loving this thread keep it going pleeeeeeeeaaaaaaase.

 

Last time I was in Manado / Lembeh my wife (who's scared witless of snakes) asked my diveguide if there were any snakes around

"Yeh but you won't see any around here because they make good eating" was his reply :)

Nige, ya, most things can be on the menu around here :)

 

This cute little blenny has made a home from an old bottle, one of the many interesting ways that the critters of Lembeh utilize rubbish as an asset to them

How did you get a 1/250 sybc speed? My D90 only syncs at 1/200 max.

Did you use the FP mode?

 

Cheers
