Reflections of 2012 Capturing Critters in Lembeh by Ethan Daniels

Ethan happily shared his recollection of our inaugural event.

Having spent about seven months on the road and underwater this year, it was an absolute pleasure to end 2012 in style during “Capturing Critters@Lembeh UWorkshop.” This unique event was incredibly fun, productive, and smoothly run. The event exposed a wonderful group of guests of all levels of uw photography to unique and never-ending subject matter and thus produced extraordinary progression in photography skills.

A large part of the phenomenal diving in Lembeh was due to the entire Critters@Lembeh dive staff, above and below the waterline, who are among the best in the business, and for that matter among the best in the world. And, after dives filled with Blue Ring and Hairy octos, Wonderpus, Flamboyant cuttlefish, froggies, ghost pipefish, nudis, etc., there’s no better feeling than to come back to the comforts and beauty of Lembeh Resort where Doug, Carlos, Steve, and I were able to give presentations on a variety of uw photography subjects.

Of all the extraordinary destinations where I regularly do photography, Critters@Lembeh and Lembeh Resort top the list!
