Shark Photography trip Bahamas

CES report

Posted by: Ilse Jurrien

This Shark Photography trip is a real expedition. The boat is very small and can barely fit us all. One by one we have room to prepare our camera, so I patiently await my turn. Because I am not familiar with the set, I take my time to set it up. Although I have made a set several times before, the first time is still a tense moment for me. It only takes one moment of inattention to fill the camera with water. This is the last thing I want because the camera is not even mine!

Shark Photography trip

The underwater housing that I have the pleasure of working with is the Sea&Sea DX-D80 with an accompanying NX-fisheye dome port. For optimal lighting I use two Sea&Sea YS110 flashes which are fastened by the Sea&Sea brackets. The flashes are operated via an external TTL-converter, which is developed by Sea&Sea especially for Nikon cameras.

During my dive in the Bahamas, Caribbean reef sharks were circling below me. As soon as I finally got my breathing under control, I started to look around a bit more easily. I was able to focus on my camera again, to make some pictures of the reef sharks in action. The underwater world amazes me time after time. Take a look at the photo gallery and you can hardly disagree with me...
