Lembeh Gulen Critter Shootout day 3 – Invertebrates Training Day

Lembeh Gulen Critter Shootout day 3 – Invertebrates Training Day

With both teams nudibranch images now online and open for voting (please vote for your favorite image at: https://tradablebits.com/tb_app/436008 – You only have ONE vote so choose carefully), we are now ready to take on invertebrates.

This is one of the categories of the event that we are most excited about here at critters@lembehresort. With so many invertebrate species here in the Lembeh Strait our participants have a lot of opportunities for taking some amazing photographs. With critters ranging from blue ring octopus and flamboyant cuttlefish through to some incredible crustaceans who knows what will be the subjects of our entry images?

This morning’s training session with leading underwater photographer Tobias Friedrich was a hands-on session looking at composition, lighting and how to capture dramatic effects as well as showing off the subject in the best possible way.

Of course, while the event is serious, there’s always been some time for fun too – check out our full image album from this morning on our Facebook page

It’s not just our participants who are primed for action – our Dive Guides are getting ready too. How many of these critter hand signals do you recognise?
