I did a photo workshop with Scott Lundy today. After the lecture portion, we did a dive at Redondo Beach for "homework". The plan was to work on composition and lighting of macro subjects, but one of the ideas Scott gave me to work with was "shoot the best of the dive".
So we went down and started, and Scott found a little Janolus nudi under a kelp leaf. The problem was that he was mostly UNDER the kelp leaf, so I reached out and gently turned the leaf over so I could see him . . . and he came OFF! He flew a couple of inches up into the water colum, and I tried to take his picture, and then Scott began to wave a little water up at him . . . and I realized what I had. I had a FLYING NUDIBRANCH!
For about the next seven minutes or so (and about 600 psi ) I shot and shot and shot this guy. Most of the pictures were useless, but one was actually pretty reasonable:
So thank you, Ken; you were in the water with me today, even if you didn't know it.
