Whether it’s your first time or your 100th dive, the world below the surface is always an amazing experience. If you’re a fan of battleships, you can’t miss Guam, a year-round dive region that preserves the remains of a WWII shipwreck; And if you’re diving in Florida, how can you go wrong with getting up close and personal with manatees? If you are fascinated by macro beauty, this issue offers you a choice between Mauritius and Lembeh as a reference for your next macro shoot!
Beyond the beauty, Su Huai reminds us to see and be aware of the sadness of the ocean. An encounter with a turtle that excreted plastics led to Su Huai’s hobby of collecting turtle faeces and over the past six years; he has recorded nearly 200 turtle faeces and made some surprising discoveries.
On the way through learning freediving, and as you move to a higher level, you may use a nose clip. Harry Chamas shares his freediving nose clip skills. Kate Jonker also shares her tips for taking fish portraits.
Whether you are a scuba diver or a freediver, we hope this issue of EZDIVE will give you some inspiration to get ready for the diving season.
I shot this photo in January 2023 in the Lembeh Straits, one of the worlds premium macro dive destinations. The photo was a long time in the planning, I had always wanted to take a shot of this juvenile sweetlips that demonstrated the way they are constantly moving so fast as they parade around the reef. In order to achieve the effect I used manual focus and a snoot to freeze the subject, and then a slower shutter speed of 1/8 second in order to get the trail effect from the movement of the fins. It took me around 4 hours of diving to get this shot and many attempts.
