p.1 #1 · Getting wet with whitey


This is a great white named Arden Moon -- can't tell it in this shot, but she is 17ft long which makes her one of the biguns. Most of the adult whiteys that are viewed repeatedly around the world have been given names, which is pretty cool. Females grow much larger than males -- the largest female probably being 20ft and the largest male around 16ft. The little pilot fish are also fascinating -- they always return to the same place on the shark. It is tricky shooting 50-50's like this because the focal point of the lens si much different under water than above -- that is why such a small aperture and high iso. Can't tell how this was shot -- but wasn't in a cage. All the best, Andrew





Isla Guadalupe, Mexico, Nikon D7000, 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 @ 10mm, f/13 @ 1/400, Iso 1600

Very interesting shot/technique in such crystal clear water. For the life of me I can't understand how you couldn't remember how you took this shot....I remember every leopard shot I have ever taken (or so my wife says) and they didn't involve putting a camera into the water with a 17ft apex predator and a wide angle lens!

Andrew,
Just when I was going to congratulate you for not being slashed by hippos in Africa*, you post this jaws dropper. With that water-breaking turn, Arden posed just right. Beautifully caught, composed, and executed. A real feat--technically and artfully.

Was asked by the boat operators to not publicize how this was done because the risks were high and they did not want others wanting to do the same.

They hung you upside down off the side of the boat by the feet! Awesome shot, however it was done.

Martin, Check out http://www.uwphotographyguide.com/over-under-split-photography for some idea on how he got this neat image. Then check his exif data to see what his settings were.

Clarity of water is outstanding and helps a lot.

Super/superb. I like the fact that you post quality, not quantity. Is that all you do; travel and shoot? Don
