Apo Island

"Gasp"⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Story of the Shot: Life breathes a little easier at Apo Island these days. In 1985, Apo Island was declared a marine sanctuary and destructive fishing methods, such as dynamite, and cyanide are now banned. When visting Apo you will run across many marine locals which includes a healthy population of sea turtles. ____________________________________________________________⠀⠀ Location: Kan-uran Dive Site @atlantisresort resort in Dumaguete, Philippines.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ____________________________________________________________⠀⠀⠀ Structure: Taken with 1DX MKII. 1/125 f20 ISO 100 with Sea&Sea YSD2 strobes. Photo was taken using the traditional 9-3 strobe position for wide angle / fish eye shooting. ⠀ ____________________________________________________________⠀ Tip: When shooting upwards you need to consider the light and balance the foreground and background which is difficult when you are shooting directly into the sun. When you have subject partially block the sun and you have a reasonably low aperture (f14+) you can ensure the pictures are not completely blown out, but you will need to be close ( I am 0.5m away) and your strobes will need to be turned to full power to light the subject, as I chose to do in this shot. If you wanted a silhouette then you could choose to shoot with a low power strobe output and / or faster shutter speed.⠀ _____________________________________________________________⠀⠀ For more scuba diving photos, underwater photography, conservation news and photo tips please #follow me @milesbelowphotography and milesbelow.com⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ _____________________________________________________________⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #happy #beautiful #cute #love #seaturtle #turtle #scuba #diving #critters #paradise #ilovediving #nature #reef #fish #naturelovers #nauticam #naturephotography #ocean #photooftheday #instagood #wetpixel ##underwateremotions #paradise #wanderlust #natgeowild #bbcearth #wildlife #dumaguete #philippines @canoncanada | @nauticamhousings | @earth_best_epic_photos |

"Magic Planet"⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Story of the Shot: A repost of one of my favourite photos. This is a fisheye of a Wobbegong Shark on a large coral plate. I love the colours and composition of this shot. In order to fit the entire frame had to get very close- probably less than 5 cm from the Wobbegong in this shot. I am lucky i didn't get any strobe arms or fins in the frame.⠀ _____________________________________________________________⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Location: @Papua_Explorers Blue Magic Dive Site, Raja Ampat Indonesia⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ _____________________________________________________________⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Structure: Taken with 1DX MKII. 1/00 f10 ISO 100 with @seaandseaimaging YSD2 strobes.

"Feather"⠀ ⠀ Story of the Shot: A crinoid shrimp also know as a feather star shrimp. They not only take on the colour of their host but also closely mimic the texture.
