Young Turtle swimming in Laulau bay on the island of Saipan.
|Submitted:||Thursday, 5th January, 2012 00:15 (GMT)|
|Taken:||Saturday, 10th December, 2011|
|Focal length:||10 mm|
|Shutter speed:||1/160 sec|
|Notes:||GH2 and Pany 7-14mm lens in a 10Bar housing with a Ikelite DS-161 strobe. All settings manual for camera and strobe. With a wide angle lens it can be tough to get a Turtle to give you a good look when you're both swimming and less then a meter apart. Any further away and the water really starts to degrade IQ as you can see by the coral which was about 2 meters away. Light doesn't travel well underwater so proximity is critical to show the true colors.|
