Wow – the lushness of underwater life here at Wakatobi is amazing. Great biodiversity, tons of fish, and vibrant coral. It was absolutely worth the long journey here.
We got a new 100mm macro lens for the SLR, and today was my first day using it. At first, it felt unfair since I could get more detail further away from the subject. I no longer scare the fish since I don’t have to be as close. It’s a mixed blessing in that I can’t shoot anything bigger than a fist, and with SLRs, you’re committed to the lens when you jump in the water.
That being said, it’s not the gear – it’s the user. I’ve forgotten how to use a strobe, so all my pictures have hot spots.
