"Bubble Coral Shrimp"  Shot in Borneo, Malaysia with Canon G15


Elisabeth won her choice of $200 gift certificate with Bluewater Photo or Bluewater Travel!


The story:  With the stacked lenses it was quite a challenge to get just the eyes of this shrimp in focus, so it took me a while to get the shot I wanted. I forgot to change my battery in between dives so while I was shooting I ran out of battery. I went back up to change for a new one and went back to the same spot to get the final shot….

Location:  Pom Pom Island, Sabah, Borneo, Malaysia.

Camera:  Canon G15, Fantasea housing, Subsee +10 and i-Das +8 stacked, Fisheye video light, no strobes

Settings:  f3.2, 1/800, ISO 200
