Underwater Photography - Underwater Videography - Photo and Video Instruction
From taking images with basic Point&Shoot to making videos with DSLR cameras and camcorders - We have you covered!
This week’s episode is all about crustaceans. Watch as porcelain crabs use their delicate filter appendages to try to catch food floating in the water, and marvel at the sheer diversity of this family of critters ranging from box crabs (also known as ‘shame-faced crabs’), porcelain crabs and slipper lobsters to outrageously decked-out crabs sporting sponges on their heads! Enjoy this close up and personal glimpse into the world of crustaceans.
Our eagle-eyed guides seem to be magic – where you might only see a bare sandy slope, they find a cornucopia of beautiful underwater animals to show you. In this video you first see these talented guides’ eyes (‘how did he find that?!’, everyone says), and from there we move on to close-up footage of some of the most fascinating critters’ eyes. Mantis shrimp are featured, with the most complex eyes on the planet, along with other striking critter ‘peepers’ such as those of the puffer fish, crocodile flathead and, one of our favorites, the footage of the blue-ringed octopus’ eyes with the chromatophores pulsating and changing color is mesmerizing.
In the second part of Wide Angle Wonder we feature some awesome close-focus wide angle videography – there are many perfect subjects for that in Lembeh like everyone’s favorite party cephalopod, the coconut octopus, hairy frogfishes, and more! Enjoy!
Sometimes we get so focused on the famous critters in the Lembeh Strait, we miss the bigger picture. Every once in a while it’s nice to take our heads out of the “muck” and see the beauty that surrounds us.
Are you a fan of night-diving? In this special episode you can see some of the critters that come out only at night: bobtail squid, bobbit worm, pleurobranch, starry night octopus and other weird underwater animals. Enjoy the night-circus!
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.
This could happen when you do a photo course with Sascha. It brought real improvement to my pictures. Thanks a lot for the fun and the lessons learned!
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.
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.
Sascha was very helpful for camera support and gave good hints about software for better images!
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!
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!
A few helpful comments by the in-house photo pro Sascha considerably improved my pictures.
Sascha packed so much into 2 hours my photography improved instantly.
