Bazaruto Archipelago Underwater Photography

For every beaten track there are hundreds more not beaten at all.
Remote Places Photography will take you there.

In the Bazaruto island archipelago off the coast of Mozambique, you will first have the delight of photographing the rare, endangered and wonderfully ugly Dugong.

Around the corner, another unforgettable experience awaits, when the beautiful mesmerising eyes of the Bazaruto Klipfish haunt you. Exquisite frilly jellyfish dance under the surface, brought in by storms in the deep ocean.

Under the water, sunbeams dance  like light masters in a theatre, offering you ever changing photographic opportunities. Even more importantly, the warm transparent waters of the Bazaruto islands are a safe haven for sea turtles and all marine life because no plastic pollutes their existence.

Bazaruto dolphins like to swim alongside sometimes while you watch the marvels of the reefs around you. The brilliant parrot fish is probably unafraid to come closer and the pink hermit crabs scuttle the sea floor decked out in fantastical shells for your delight.

Photography works differently under the water because water behaves differently to air. Most colour is absorbed as it travels underwater. The Shorter wavelengths (red, orange, yellow) are absorbed first. Most photos taken underwater without a flash look dull and blue due to this wavelength absorption.

Learning to maximise the ambient light available, and understanding how to make your own strobe lights behave, opens up endless creative possibilities. Shooting underwater is very different due to the properties of water, strobe lights are a very useful piece of equipment.

Read this post for information on basic under water photography equipment, and why you need it.
