Gili Trawangan, Lombok, Indonesia

THE STORY

Another Close Focus Wide Angle sample, this time of a resting turtle. For a moment I feared a bite on the dome who must have been maybe 5 cm from the coral and 15 from the turtle’s beak.

THE TECHNIQUE

At this depth (over 20m) on the afternoon and with an average viz, I was solely relying on flash power so shot with settings similar to macro. F/8 seemed to provide decent corner sharpness here, which was a calculated risk since I was shooting at 17mm.
