So this is a zoomed-in photo of an emperor shrimp riding on a sea slug. X-Pro Instagram filter used for the shot to highlight the intricate pattern of this particular shrimp.
“Put your hand in a crack, and you won’t get it back, that’s a Moray!”
Actually that’s false. Morays are rather shy creatures that won’t bite your fingers off unless you really provoke them.
This was taken at 20 ft depth in Tubbataha, Sulu Sea in the Philippines. I applied the Earlybird filter to give the swimming turtle that eerie but smooth effect.
Sometimes I just want shoot underwater coral and plant life patterns. It’s relatively easy and the patterns can get really interesting especially if you get close. I shoot primarily with a 60mm macro lens (Canon).
I just love how you can find really interesting critters underneath an anemone skirt. But I really hate how jumpy porcelain crabs can get as they try to hide themselves from the camera.
