From taking images with basic Point&Shoot to making videos with DSLR cameras and camcorders - We have you covered!
Here’s the second part of the March of the Nudis. There are lots of different species of nudis and sea slugs here in Lembeh. Check them all out and see how many you recognise!
This March is all about nudis, so here’s the first part featuring both, common and rare nudibranchs of the Lembeh Strait. We have a lot of different species here. Have you seen all of these?
It is important to set the right time and date on your camera after you change location. It is always good to know when you took that special shot whether it was sun rays in the right position, fishes mating or other animal behaviour you’re trying to capture which may only occur at a specific time of day.
If you look at your images later you will always know exactly what time you took that shot of the manta with the sun rays at the perfect angle, or of that fan on the wall. It might be crucial to know what time those frogfishes mated – if you set the right time on your camera this will be easy, because it gets embedded in the metadata of every image. There will be no speculation about when the sun is right, you will know with 100% certainty by looking at your images, and you can then decide to go back to a particular location at exactly the same time, or try at a later or earlier time if the sun wasn’t right.
If you don’t check the date at all, it could even indicate the wrong month or year, which could lead to problems when trying to submit your image to a photo contest.
A special thanks to Sascha, the Photo Pro, who I learned a lot from and who was always available for help and advise. Anybody who wants to improve their photography skills, Sascha is the Pro to go see and spend time with!
Sascha was very helpful for camera support and gave good hints about software for better images!
Arriving as a complete novice underwater photographer and leaving with some relatively decent photos can only be credited to the technical knowledge of the inhouse photography expert Sascha, as well as the help of guides underwater.
Sascha is a consummate Pro, whether it be with his photography, videography or post-production skills. His wealth of knowledge can help fine-tune enthusiasts from novice level to pro alike. His enthusiasm and passion flow through into his teaching style. I also appreciated his patience and trouble-shooting skills. My photography and knowledge level literally improved overnight after working with Sascha.
The camera pro – Sascha – is really talented and happy to help you out. My wife took a short one-on-one class with him and it made an immediate impact on her photos.
Sascha packed so much into 2 hours my photography improved instantly.
A few helpful comments by the in-house photo pro Sascha considerably improved my pictures.
Extremely satisfied with the Photo Center service. Finally, we have also made progress in our uw photography with valuable tips from Sascha, who also introduced us to the world of Lightroom.
I was particularly grateful to the Lembeh photo-pro Sascha Janson for his patient and tailor-made tuition. I can highly recommend the DSLR course, especially for those who want to get the most from their underwater photography during the trip. Sascha was also able to provide a tailor-made lesson on post-editing which I found invaluable.
I took an underwater photo class with Sascha. Sascha provided some excellent tips and advice on camera settings, lighting, and even on organizing and editing pics in Lightroom. It was very helpful and made the trip even more interesting, giving me a fun mission to improve the quality of my pics while I was there. I don’t have an SLR, but am happy with the results from my Canon S95 and the class was worth every penny!
