One Diver’s Perspective.

Scuba, Photography and Scandal

Sharks Up Close and Personal

Here we see a Caribbean Reef shark, eying my camera.  Or perhaps, eying me.  The focus is all wrong because the eye is blurry.  However, I thought it was an interesting shot nonetheless.

  1. I’m kinda thinking the blur makes the photograph

  2. I can acept that comment. I only wish the eye blur was the result of eye movement! That would have been neat.

  3. I think it’s a GREAT photo – the eye seems to blur because the shark is moving through your field of vision. I’m so jealous! I have not seen a shark while diving yet.

    • Easiest way to see sharks while diving is to dive with an operator that chums the water! There are plenty of people against that sort of thing, but unless there is food to attract them the closest we’ve ever gotten to them are not close enough for a good picture! Still thrilling though, even to just see them off in the distance.

  4. Well, that is no doubt why it did blur! If you want to see sharks there is no better place than the bahamas. And you don’t need to do a liveaboard to see them! Unfortunately, you probably will have to be part of a feeding though. Stuart’s Cove and other’s lead those types of dives where shark encounters are pretty much guaranteed.
