Lembeh Photo Workshops 2022 dates. We’re getting a few enquiries about our photo workshops in Lembeh going forward (pending being able to get a visa). Here is a list of the talented photographer led workshops that we’re hosting at NAD-Lembeh in the coming year. Please contact us or the Workshop Read more…
Our guides have been diving a lot with the camera over the last year, and they’ve made some stunning images with our rental camera fleet. The most used camera was the Olympus TG-4, which has recently been replaced by a TG-5 due to a leak! The GH-4 was the next Read more…
Different species of Nudibranchs seemed to have replaced the abundance of cephalopods we’ve had during the previous month. Frogfishes, which are always a great subject to film and photograph, are still around – various species, colours and sizes. Following our 2018 highlights video, have a look what December had in stock for us!
One of the reasons why I love diving in Lembeh is that you can re-visit dive sites to look for “the locals”. Certain critters and even fish stay in the same area unless they get disturb. Therefore, if you didn’t manage to take a photo or video on the first go, there’s always the opportunity to go back and shoot again.
Another fantastic year of diving in the Lembeh Strait comes to an end. A big shout out to all of the staff at NAD and of course all our guests which made 2018 another great year to remember. Most memorable moments for me were when we saw Whaleshark, Rhinopias, Melibe Colemani, Blue-Ringed Octopus, hatching Flamboyant Cuttlefish and Blue-Ringed Octopus Eggs as well as many new critters during Blackwater Night Dives. Bring on 2019 for some more amazing encounters with the critters and creatures of Lembeh!
It’s the season for Ornate Ghost Pipefishes here in Lembeh! This exotic looking fish hovers head down and can usually be found in pairs or smaller groups. Most of the time Ornate Ghost Pipefishes live right next to crinoids, feather stars or soft corals. Colors can vary from black, red, yellow to white.
The NAD house reef is the perfect place if you would like to do an additional dive in the afternoon and be independent from the boat schedule. We’ve spotted Lembeh Sea Dragons, Psychedelic Batwing Slugs and Sargassum Frogfish on the house reef. However, right now we have some great wide-angle opportunities as well.
A lot of people struggle with which lens to bring on their diving trip to Lembeh. The Strait has it all: little shrimps and nudibranchs, medium sized frogfish and octopuses, perfect wide angle scenes like reef tops and every now and again even big fish passing! This article gives you a few suggestions and recommendations on the best lens if you’re shooting a Panasonic/ Olympus Micro Four Third camera.
