A quick journey from Lembeh to the Bunaken National Park area brought us to Thalassa Resort, where we were greeted warmly by the owner Simone and her staff, before we settled into getting cameras ready. Seven folks continued with us from Lembeh as well as four participants who met us at Thalassa. During dinner we were witness to an amazing rain and lightning storm which interrupted our first night presentation, so everyone enjoyed an early night instead after a full week of diving in Lembeh. For the Bunaken portion of the workshop, we scheduled two morning dives on the walls of the islands of Bunaken and a third dive in the afternoon at one of the ample critter sites closer to the resort. This proved to be a good mix of both wide angle and macro photo opportunities so that everyone could get a good portfolio of images. Throughout the week we gave presentations on: “Fstops and Shutter speeds”, “Split Shots”, “Shooting Models”, “Capturing Sunrays”, “Close Focus Wide Angle”, and “Lightroom”. We did a total of 14 dives in the Bunaken area and enjoyed great encounters with turtles, colourful seafans and crinoids, beautiful blue water, and many critters on the afternoon dives. On our final night we once again gathered everyone together and showed a “Best of the Week” slideshow with everyones’ images projected onto the big screen.

We would like to thank everyone who joined us for this very successful photo workshop as well as the staff and owners of Thalassa Resort who hosted us for the week. We had the pleasure to host folks from the following countries: New Zealand, U.S.A, U.K., Holland, and Australia. We are looking forward to doing it again next year, here are some great shots from everyone as well as some “behind the scenes” shots.

Until next year!
