Field Notes From the Lembeh Strait, Sulawesi – December 2018

A “macro-fest” of critters!

I used the 60mm and Amanda, the 40mm.

We captured a decent set of images, though in hindsight I felt that I should have got more out of it, and experimented a bit more with bokeh, lighting and blur. The biggest theme of my dive trips is to shoot in a “photojournalistic” style, rather than creatively – great for the magazine features, but sometimes not as satisfying afterwards (I could have got more).

I’m thinking that we were tired and just needed a rest, without each day becoming a stress of trying to do too many things.

It was nice to see a Cockatoo Waspfish again, and to capture images of Blue Ringed Octopus on Christmas Day. – JC
