The underwater world has amazed me from the very beginning. There is always something new and exciting to see. Be they giant Mola Mola of Lembognan, Bali (Indonesia), playful mantas of Similan Islands (Thailand), abundance of sharks and schools of barracudas in Sipadan (Malaysia). I can’t forget about my beloved Red Sea. Not only for it’s scenic wrecks and reefs. Red Sea holds a special place in my heart. This is where I met my husband and this is also where we engaged…underwater…in between beautiful corals of Jackson Reef.
Being a diver and photographer, it was only natural for me to combine the two. I wanted to remember what I see. I wanted to capture the beauty, diversity and my encounters with small and those tad bigger creatures. Taking a good underwater picture is not as easy as it may seem! First of all you have to master perfect buoyancy control to get a picture and not to damage the reef in this same time.Secondly the light behaves differently underwater. You really have to master how to maintain colour in your pictures so they don't look horribly blue.
All my pictures were taken with an ancient now Canon Ixus 980 and Inon 105 wide angle lens. I am still saving for the housing for my dSLR!
