Macro Snorkeling Photos, St John
by David Gottlieb
I recently returned from St John where I was able to snorkel several hours a day over a 5 day period. Once again I was impressed with the macro photos I got with my Olympus TG-4. It was reliable and leak-proof with amazing battery life. I was mostly using the dedicated Microscope setting with no other accessories.
The weather was variably cloudy but at the shallow depths I was shooting the clouds weren't a problem. With heavier overcast or when shooting under ledges I tried out a new LED light. The results varied mostly due to my floppy homemade light holder.
I included some sample pictures above.
