Our 2014 North Sulawesi Photo Workshop has now come to an end and a great success it was! We started out with an eager group of 13 people who joined us at the ever-evolving NAD Lembeh Resort for a 6 night/17 dive extravaganza from the 7-13th of May. With our two photo instructors, Luca and Mike, along with 6 experienced dive guides, we split the group across two boats and explored many of the best sites that Lembeh has to offer: from wide-angle opportunities to the black sand sites that made Lembeh famous. Our daily schedule consisted of 2 dives in the morning followed by a great lunch and an afternoon lecture before a third dive and our evening critiquing sessions. Although the group enjoyed two night dives throughout the week, we were able to present two lectures after dinner as well as several entertaining slideshows. Highlights of the lectures included: The Basics of Lighting, Wide Angle in Lembeh, Macro Composition, and a series of Lightroom lectures among others. With one guide to each pair of divers, we were able to find and photograph the whole realm of Lembeh critters including blue ring octopus, mimics, wonderpus, frogfish, nudibranchs, bobbit worms, flambouyant cuttlefish, and a plethora of weird and wonderful crustaceans! On the final night of the week everyone turned in their best shots and we enjoyed a slideshow of images with some great candid shots thrown in as well. On the morning of the 13th we did our final two dives before half the group headed out to Bunaken National Park for the second portion of the workshop. With hearty goodbyes for the folks who weren’t joining us, we said our goodbyes to NAD Lembeh and their wonderful staff for hosting us once again for our photo workshop in the “critter capital of the world”. Thanks to everyone who joined us at NAD with participants from New Zealand, Malaysia, the USA, the UK, and Australia as well as the owners and staff of NAD Lembeh Resort.
