Wow, GREAT vis there. That's very clear water.

I would not feel comfortable there when those fellows stare at you, but a very nice image you have taken! :)

Why not? I have been in the water with bulls, tigers, makos, and lemon sharks. I am more afraid of humans than sharks!!!

Awesome shots. We also went diving with sharks on the next island over, Moorea. A bit scary (we had 8 of them around us) but very thrilling.


Life is hard...but I just take it one photograph at a time.

Excellent shots! If you have the rare pleasure to see a shark, at first it will give you a moment of pause the first time...after that it is a memorizing and magical experience to be in their environment. Again, great job!

I’m usually more afraid of my dive buddy killing me than a shark. They behave more like dogs and don’t view divers as food or a threat.

I own a print lab and have a customer that brings their underwater photography in to my lab and everything is so cool (temperature) that the sharks always look blue. Do you set a custom WB for your shots or does your 70D on AWB get it right? I am having to color correct all of their images to make the sharks look correct. Do you have any advice I can give my customer? I have never shot under water so I am not quite sure what to tell them.

They are probably not shooting with strobes. When I shot in Guadalupe, Mexico the water is blue. I was not able to use strobes as we were in a cage. They should adjust in their computer first.

With good vis and good light you can shoot without flash/strobes and white balance at depth. When we dive i white balance at depth against the sand or a writing slate.
