I always get wondered how people get to see such amazing scene underwater? Such a great and rare shot it is!

The underwater mystery, Yes I have always wondered myself, the factor of light and water, how well can it be combined. What camera case are you using?
Are those full frames of seahorses? I am amazed by the closeness of these creatures.

I use a Nauticam housing with my M3 and 11-22 lens. I got really close to it, perhaps around a foot away at the most.

Why weren't you using a macro lens? Here is one from when I was last in Anilao

Is this 'My Little Seapony'? My daughter would love it!

That's a beautiful shot. I'm really just starting out and it's the only lens I have for my rig. I wanted something that would give me some flexibility since I don't really dive to shoot a specific thing in mind. Hope that answers your question. Would really like to learn more.

You need to know the area you are going to first. That is the big thing. You also should have a plan in mind. Like here in southern California for the most part is macro. The vis is to crappy for wa. Where did you take that seahorse? I would recommend getting a macro lens and port. Macro can be a lot of fun as well.

Thanks! The seahorse was taken in Bohol. A house reef just off of the resort we were staying at. Just did a quick dive at dusk. You're right, it would be much better if we planned the dive specifically for photography. Most of the time, I'm just tagging along with other divers who aren't photographers so not quite sure what we'll see. But will definitely look at getting a set up specifically for macro.
