"Green Submarine"⠀ ⠀ Story of the Shot: Before our night dive I mentioned to our guide. "Do you ever see emperor shrimp here?" He said yes but they can be rare. Fast forward and I was in the process of trying to take a picture of a marble shrimp which are very shy and we were also battling a strong current when something quickly floated past my face. I lit it up with my torch and it was a green nudibranch which must have been dislodged by the strong current. It was traveling in mid water, then as it slowly rotated I noticed a orange critter and I said to myself. "That is an emperor shrimp going for a ride on nudibranch." The photo is quite something. It almost looks like it was created in photoshop. But this a purely in camera shot on a night dive. The result was pretty amazing. ⠀ _____________________________________________________________⠀ ⠀ One of the controversies in underwater photography is when people feel critters have been manipulated to create a shot. The old analogy is is shoot a subject not a species ( I believe @alexmustard1 coined this). This photo was not manipulated or set up in any way. ⠀ _____________________________________________________________⠀ ⠀ Location: @atlantisresort resort in Dumaguete, Philippines.⠀ _____________________________________________________________⠀ ⠀ Structure: Taken with 1DX MKII in a with an SMC (super macro converter) 1/250 f16 ISO 100 with @seaandseaimaging YSD2 strobes.

"Love in the Late Afternoon"This photo of mandarinfish or mandarin dragonet was shot on this evenings dusk dive. Mandarinfish mate in what many would call the gloomiest spot on the reef. The ritual is generally dominated by the strongest male and only lasts a couple of seconds. The male will release sperm as the females release eggs for fertilization. You can see the female releasing eggs in this photo. Taken with @canoncanada 1DX MK II in a @nauticamhousings in the beautiful @atlantisresort resort in Dumaguete, Philippines. 1/200 f20 ISO 100 with #seaandsea Sea & Sea YSD2 strobes.
