Ocean Art 2022 - 1st Place Nudibranchs

1st Place Nudibranch

 Aleksei Permiakov



Aleksei Permiakov won a 7 nights with 15 dives trip to Villa Markisa in Bali, Indonesia!


The Story: During the pandemic me and my wife got stuck in Bali and that was a great opportunity for macro photography. We explored Tulamben and made a series of dives at the Drop Off dive site where we spotted quite a lot of different subjects. Tambja morosa is a relatively big nudi and usually I would shoot it without a wet lens, but I decided to focus more on rhinophores and its amazing texture. 

I used Capture one software for post processing. Cropped and mirrored the image. Added sharpness on the rhinophores and made some clean up. 

Location: Tulamben, Bali, Indonesia

Equipment Used: Nikon D850 Camera, Nikkor 105mm f2.8 VR lens, Nauticam NA-D850 Housing, Nauticam SMC Wet Lens, Backscatter MF-01 Strobe with Snoot

Camera Settings: ISO 125, F22, 1/200 sec
