Polka-dotted Nudibranch, 2012. Tanjung Rimau, Sentosa, Singapore.
I half-submerged the camera for this shot. This technique is called “half-and-half” and technically speaking, it is very challenging.
The brains behind this technique is David Doubilet, a NatGeo photographer. He’s the one who invented it and you can see his awesome shots here.
Two Kangaroos, 2012. Central Queensland, Australia.
My treatment of this photo was, to a small extent, inspired by Three Boys at Lake Tanganyika.
The really nice thing about dragonflies is they’re patient. When you first approach one, don’t be dismayed if it flies away. Aim your camera at the perch it just left. It will return within seconds, and stay for minutes. For your shooting pleasure. Trust me on this one. They’re probably even more patient than you are.
This can get addictive.
