The Lembeh Straits in Indonesia offers some of the finest, most reliable macro photography on the planet. It is not that the species that inhabit the area are necessarily unique (although some are), it is more that they are so reliably found. This gives image-makers creative freedom to experiment and play with techniques that are otherwise reserved to more common subjects.
Wetpixel is hosting a laid-back 9-night stay at Lembeh Resort, with the single and simple goal of macro photographic productivity. There is no schedule of formal lecture sort presentations, although Wetpixel Publisher Adam Hanlon will be on hand to assist and provide guidance. Perhaps more importantly, you will be surrounded by creative photographers who will share their experiences, advice, and enthusiasm!
In order to maximize the imaging potential, the trip is laid out to be productive. Client to guide ratios is 2:1, ensuring each individual will have a host of subjects.
The package includes 16 guided boat dives, allowing for night diving and repetitive dives on the same site in order to shoot subjects in multiple creative ways. If additional dives are required, these can be added to the resort.
In addition, Lembeh Resort’s house reef has a huge variety of subjects and the diving package gives unlimited access to it, both day and night.
