"Laomenes Rests on Crinoid"  Shot in Tulamben, Indonesia with Canon 5D Mark III


So Yat Wai won a Buy-1, Get-1 Free 7-night, 5-dive package in with Manta Ray Bay & Yap Divers!


The story:  This shot was taken around 7 meters depth. I had taken over 30 shoots of this crinoid shrimp and waited unit it climbed towards my camera. The current was not strong, but the surge in shallow water kept my housing moving. Therefore, it was difficult to get both eyes in focus and the subject with this posture. In addition, a good focus light was really helpful when focusing with my wet diopter. 

Location:  Tulamben, Bali, Indonesia

Camera:  Canon 5D Mark III, Sea & Sea housing, Canon 100mm lens, Nauticam SMC, dual Inon Z240 strobes
