3rd Place Mirrorless Macro Ocean Art 2016 Pier Mane

3rd Place Mirrorless Macro

Pier Mane



Pier won a 7-nightdive package with El Galleon Beach Resort


The story:  A skittish (red eye or mask?) goby swimming was swimming around this sponge. Several attempt to capture him in an appealing position by following him did not result in any thing.  I opted to find the angle of the sponge that I like with the branches as the backdrop and than wait.  I wanted both eyes and its fuselage splitting the sponge truck in half, give this effect that it was surfing.  “Patience”, more patience, finally he start moving closer to where I want it to be…as the computer approaches NDL and air is running low, finally collaboration arrived and this capture resulted. 

Location:  Lembeh Strait, Indonesia

Camera:  Olympus EM1 and Olympus 60mm Macro Lens (F22, 1/250, ISO 200)
