Lembeh Strait, The Mecca for Underwater Macrophotography

It is likely for non-divers for not knowing where is Lembeh Strait since the main attraction on the island is diving. Lembeh strait is located in between two islands, Sulawesi and Lembeh, off the north east coast of Sulawesi, Indonesia.Traveling to North Sulawesi might be more identical with visiting Bunaken National Park, a protected area which is more famous than Lembeh Island. So, why should I go to Lembeh and not to Bunaken? Which one is prettier? Bunaken or Lembeh? Well guys, I’m so sorry to... continue reading

Trust me, I'm a Macro Photographer

  Hi, I'm Antony and I came to be a photographer via engineering, popular music, plumbing, classical music, building maintenance, separation, divorce, fine art painting, college lecturing and caring for an elderly relative. Doubtless you are thinking this was a rather circuitous route! Life is what it is, it does what it does and if you let it, it will take you on a significant journey.

The Challenges of Macrophotography

Macrophotography presents its own set of challenges quite distinct from your usual photography.First of all, you have to spring for the lens, and that's nothing to sneeze at.Then, you have to get dirty --- I mean, you have to kneel, sit, even lie on the ground to take the shots you want.You have to assume awkward, sinew stretching positions so you can take a picture of that itsy bitsy ladybug underneath that teeny weeny leaf.Plus you have to suffer ants feasting on your feet and endure static... continue reading

Insects a Challenging but Rewarding Subject

Insects are an especially challenging subject to photograph for several reasons.They're small and flighty, which poses a need for balance between depth of field and fast shutter speed while trying to get close enough for a full-frame shot without startling the subject out of its momentary repose.For the butterfly pictured, a Zephyr Anglewing (Polygonia gracilis zephyrus) subspecies of the Hoary Comma (Polygonia gracilis), I found such a balance by taking advantage of the bright midday sunlight.... continue reading
