Field Notes from the Lankayan Island, Borneo January/February 2010

Our visit to Lankayan was very enjoyable and productive in a photographic sense.

Whilst the conditions for diving were difficult thanks to a period of very poor visibility, we were able to get some pleasing images, especially of the mating and egg-laying cuttlefish, which were the highlight of the trip.

It gave me the opportunity to work on fish eye photography techniques in low/poor visibility, slow shutter speed and rear curtain sync, and for both us, some forays in the narrow depth of field “bokeh” effect with macro lenses.

Also, at the beginning and end of the trip, we visited the Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre at Sepilok, which gave us a chance for some different kinds of photography. – JC
