Are you interested in cameras? If so I thought I’d share a couple of images I recently shot while on a shoot in Honduras. I knew I was going to be near some amazing water but didn’t want to take my ‘real’ underwater gear as it takes up too much space and shooting underwater wasn’t why I was going so I bought the #olympustg5 as it was supposed to be a great underwater point and shoot. I literally opened up the box an hour before I got in the water. In case you were thinking of purchasing it here are my learning: focus was difficult underwater and I didn’t manage to workout how to move the focus icon around the screen. Stability is important while underwater. I was just using snorkeling gear which meant remain stationary underwater was harder. So I think these shots would have been way better with scuba gear. To achieve these images I did a fair bit of work in photoshop to get cleaner sharper images plus added a few bits and pieces. Overall I was a little disappointed with the results but maybe it’s just my technical ability to understand the tech options on the camera that limited the level of quality I was hoping for. Thanks to @scuba_franny for the great modeling work! @getolympus@olympusfilmfestival@olympuscameras ————————————————————- #snorkeling#underwaterphotography#underwaterphotographer#olympustoughtg5#photography#olympus#olympususa#honduras#roatanhonduras#roatan
Who is scared of a fish? And what if the fish was reminding you of Palpatine, the Emperor in Star Wars? This is one more shot of those naughty black cheek moray eels that are quite common on the reefs of Ponta do Ouro in Mozambique. They are not big fish, but they are quite aggressive. They defend the hole where they live and are always ready for a fight. I enjoy interacting with them because they offer some opportunity for original dramatic shots. Let me know what you think of the picture!
A translucent blue tang.🐟🐠
This is an Acanthurus coeruleus or a blue tang surgeonfish. They're found from New York to Brazil. This one, in particular, was discovered just off of Puerto Vallarta, a resort town on Mexico’s Pacific coast.
The blue tang surgeonfish can grow up to 15 inches long, but the adults aren't see-through. It's their young that are small and transparent. Having clear bodies helps conceal babies from predators. Sea turtles have a close relationship with these little guys: The blue tang surgeonfish nibbles algae and parasites off the turtle’s flippers, getting the nourishment it needs while simultaneously keeping its flippered friend clean and healthy.
