In the last week we’ve had all kinds of octopus, from blue ringed to mimic and the usual other cephalopods. Many kinds of frogfish, and of course all the other usual tiny critters that you associate with Lembeh. My favourite moment was sitting with a pair of gobies whilst they had a territorial dispute, which in turn allowed me to get very close without disturbing them.
I’ve been shooting a combination of 150mm Sigma on Canon 1Dx and Nikon 105mm on D500, with various diopters, so I don’t have many shots of the bigger animals. I shot at between F/5 (creamy bokeh) and F/32 (diopters on eggs) over 10 photo dives (and 2 video dives on top of that).
Next week i’m planning on trying some other lenses, likely the 50mm Zeiss, 40mm Nikon and maybe even take the newish 17-70mm sigma. Super Macro makes my eyes feel old.
