Live Reports: Wetpixel/Mustard Macro Workshop 2018

Workshop 2, Day 2

Day 2 of the second Wetpixel/Alex Mustard lembeh Macro Workshop dawned fine and bright. Once again an early breakfast was followed by Alex presenting his talk on subject selection. Alex discussed some ideas about how to shoot a wide variety of subjects. The key here is not to produce documentary species ID style images, but to use techniques that allow macro subjects to be artistically portrayed.

After Alex’s talk, we went diving…

The critters were on form!

Two-morning dives were followed by lunch and lens, card and battery changes…

An afternoon dive gave lots more fantastic subject to practice subject isolation techniques with.

This was followed by another night dive on a site called Bianca, about a 5 minutes boat ride from Lembeh Resort. It is a mixed site, with reef shallow, rubble around 15 meters and then sand deeper than this. This allows for a wide variety of subjects:

A quick shower, dinner and then an image review. The images submitted by the participants were amazing. Folks were pretty tired!
