1. Some things are so much more important than getting the shot. Underwater photography carries an elevated, but manageable, risk of death or serious injury and following safe diving practises must be the priority, no matter how exciting or unique the potential image may be. Competency with general diving skills, especially buoyancy control, is not only essential for your safety but without them your images will be underwhelming, at best.2. Respect the underwater environment. Following on from point... continue reading

Well I wanted to share a couple of things with you all. First off I have broke the 200 images and am well on my way to breaking 300!Secondly I wanted to share a little bit about the use of extenders and turning your regular lenses into macro lenses for 5$ All these images of bees and bugs where taken with a 18-55mm lens and a 5$ attachment on amazon.

The rules are very similar to volleyball, except that using the hands is not permitted, and each player can touch the ball only once before it is hit over the net. The ball can be... continue reading
My husband was eager to visit a live volcano and hence the plan was to visit Mount Bromo at Indonesia. Well, as usual I am no extra brave like some of the super girls ;) but as he insisted, I made the plan with a little twist! Since 14th Feb is our marriage anniversary I wanted to hop at Bali on that day instead of visiting Bromo directly. And look at our fate.
