Blue-Light Diving, Blue-Light Underwater Photos

cc32Coral 1 Day 457x305 Blue Light Diving, Blue Light Underwater PhotosGood morning from Curacao! Once again we got a little rain this morning which as many of you now know, that’s a big deal! Our little island was severely suffering from a 6 month drought but is now slowly starting to green up again and we love it!! So yesterday I ended up doing three dives again, one before 9:30am, one at noon and one starting at 8:00 last night. I had spent much of the afternoon preparing for my night dive which involves setting up the camera with blue-filters over the strobes and a yellow filter over the lens to capture fluorescence on the reef at night. This new kind of night diving is called “blue-light diving” and it’s a total blast! MOREMore:

Baby Caribbean Reef Squids, Sepioteuthis sepioidea

2e44Squids 457x305 Baby Caribbean Reef Squids, Sepioteuthis sepioidea
Good morning friends, I jumped in the water early this morning with camera in hand and photographed our school of baby Caribbean Reef Squids that have been living here since they were born. The squids range in size from around three to six inches and I counted around 35 of them. The squids seem very relaxed and they let me get very close and at times they were hovering around me and the camera, it was fantastic! Although the photo is small you can still see all their crazy iridescent colors which they have the ability to change in the blink of an eye, truly one of the hands down coolest creatures in the sea! I have found out that photographing these animals can be very difficult because of their eyes, too much light and it ruins the eyes and too little and the body is too dark, this was hot at 160-F13 making the squids colors perfect with no over-exposed eyes. The Caribbean reef squid (Sepioteuthis sepioidea), also known as just the Reef Squid, is a small (20 cm) torpedo-shaped squid with fins that extend nearly the entire length of the body and undulate rapidly as it swims.
