  • Video of schooling fish at Samarai Island in Milne Bay
    for Free Integrity Policy Contact Me Tony Wu Photo Naturalist ars gratia scientiae Samarai Blue Here s a short video clip I just put together showing what it was like to dive under the jetty at Samarai Island I took the video footage when it was cloudy overhead so the light was diffuse and whitish plus there was quite a bit of contrast between the dark nearly black areas under the jetty and the harshly lit patches of water Did the best I could picking angles to minimise the conflict between light and dark I shot with a Canon 7D camera and Tokina 10 17mm wide zoom lens using a Zillion housing and Pro One dome port For lighting I used two Light and Motion Sola 1200 lights mainly just to add highlights to fish that swam close to me I also used the recently released Technicolor CineStyle picture profile I think it may have helped with capturing greater detail in the wide range of light values though I didn t shoot any footage with other profiles for comparison Hope you enjoy the video There certainly were a lot of fish Tuesday Jul 12 2011 Photography Marine Life Places Adventures

  • Eels of Larike Village in Ambon, Indonesia | Anguilla sp.
    guinea pig as you can see in the picture below I asked him to stand in the river while the eels slithered up to check out his feet I didn t realise it at the time but Hafes wasn t completely certain that the eels wouldn t devour his toes so hats off to him for keeping his cool well almost doing so if you discount the muffled shrieks of panic A very brave Hafes staring down the large eels of Larike Once we actually Hafes had established that the eels would only slime not eat you we headed back to the resort where I packed my gear for a return visit the following morning to get footage for this video The Eels of Larike Background music by Erenst Michael Puturuhu Downloadable copy available via iTunes While I had my head dipped into the water with a couple dozen eels around my head Hafes took a few snapshots no doubt relieved that it was me not him this time who was face to face with the horde of serpentine creatures Me at work with eels Andy looking dorky and getting in my way Note Andy the dude not brave enough to stick his face in the water is the owner of Maluku Divers He fancies himself an artist but it was a struggle just getting him to hold one of my lights correctly The things I have to put up with I m not certain what kind of eels these are but I suspect they are a species of the genus Anguilla perhaps the Indonesia shortfin eel Anguilla bicolor bicolor Update 4 Feb 2011 They are more likely Anguilla marmorata common name giant mottled eel Like other eels of this genus these elongated fish are catadromous They begin life at sea in a mass spawning session As larvae they re known as leptocephali They develop into a form called glass eels and then elvers when they become pigmented They then return to rivers to mature and eventually go back to sea to spawn Actually there s a lot we don t know about these types of eels no surprise eh but one thing is for certain Global populations of Anguillid eels have declined precipitously in recent years again no surprise right Some of the decrease is probably due to overfishing overconsumption think unagi but habitat destruction no doubt plays a role too One thing that attracted me to Larike is that the village is just metres away from the ocean The eels can come and go as they please so in a sense it s a refuge for these animals In many advanced countries rivers have been dried up dammed up silted up or otherwise stuffed up by our collective short sightedness Eels can t complain and don t attract cute cute hug hug attention for NGO fund raising campaigns so most people don t know about them Save the Eel just doesn t make the grade as a marketing

  • Video of Marine Life in Ambon Indonesia
    Photo Naturalist ars gratia scientiae Video Ambon Beneath The Waves I ve had my head buried in my computer for the past few days putting together the following short video with a selection of images and video clips from my visits to Ambon Downloadable copy available via iTunes Of particular note the background music is a local song called Panggayo which Michael was kind enough to sing for me If you visit Ambon and dive with Maluku Divers there s a good chance that Michael will be the guy who picks you up at the airport so be sure to tease him tell him what a talented singer he is Michael chillin with his guitar He has a wonderful voice and is proficient with a number of instruments including guitar I m really happy he agreed to help with the video since finding appropriate music for a slideshow video is always difficult Featuring local talent adds a nice touch to the finished product Enjoy the video and visit Ambon if you get the opportunity Note If you re interested in reading about the workflow I used to put this video together I summarised the main points in this post Wednesday
