A blissful moment with humpback whales in Bora Bora

Work being slower than in prior years - fewer weddings, couple's shooting, and visitors in general - has allowed us to work on our underwater photography. Taking photos of marine life is something I love doing, grateful to always have my wonderful vahine at my side. Animal photography takes patience and a good amount of luck in having the perfect situation, unlike a wedding or couple's  photo shoot, we cannot create the scene or situation for the perfect shot. We love photographing sharks, over…

Underwater photography in Bora Bora

To unleash aquatic photography, I use Canon + a Nauticam housing. I got my first dive certification at age 14, at 18 I had acquired a Nikkonos V with a 35mm!  That was my first UW rig, today and after having tried many underwater housings, Nauticam is what I consider to be the best brand.  We are proud to have sold a few prints to several magazines and also have a few available (at a reasonable cost) on our gallery! I use a Canon DSLR, a Nauticam housing with Inon strobes, several LED lights &…

  • Keith,

    Thanks for your suggestion about Wadi Musa. I am still figuring out the logistics.

  • Anil: I think you should stay overnight at Wadi Musa (I don't think you can stay in Petra itself) anyway ... it was a city, not just a building, and will take a considerable time to explore fully. Not sure if there's a sound and light show *every* night; it would be wise to check before you go.

  • Does any one have a first hand experience of photographing Petra, Jordan at night ? Is it worth it for a non professional photographer to spend big buck and stay overnight for just the experience ? Any suggestion where to  stay overnight to get an opportunity to see Petra and then photograph on top ?

    I do not have experience with  night photography, all suggestions are welcome.

  • I did. Thanks Ed.

  • Good luck, Inka! Post this on Media Only, too; let's get you some votes!

  • Just entered the Frommer Cover Photo Competition and would very much appreciate votes.

  • Have a new blog which I hope some of you will check out.  I include some of my photos every week too!  http://maureenblevins.blogspot.com/

  • I know I'm rough on my camera, you should see my luggage!  I wore out an Osprey bag and they replaced it! 

    I'll try not to "bash" around my camera. LOL.  I'll be traveling with a group of photographers, so I'll pay attention and follow their lead.  Might learn something!  I'll check out the 18-200 zoom.  Thanks again.
