Macro Snorkeling Photos, St John

by David Gottlieb
(Atlanta, GA)

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.

Hi David, thank you for sharing your macro photos of St John with us. They are great. That little Olympus TG-4 camera is remarkable.

Can you tell us what is in the second photo? Is it some kind of egg patch?
