Most of these shots are from Cozumel and Bonaire. They’re all film shots and they span about six years from about 1996 to 2002. With a few exceptions, they have all been shot with a Nikonos 5. Generally, the Caribbean Ocean is where I have the found the best visibility underwater, often exceeding 100 feet.

I guess the easiest way to describe Macro is that it is photography of really tiny critters and fish. I like it because it takes you right down into their world. Most of these images are taken with a 60 mm and a 105 mm lens on a housed Nikon camera. A few of the older ones are taken with extension tubes and framers on a Nikonos 5 and on some I used a special macro lens that fits over the top of a 35 mm lens on the Nikonos 5. Some of the extreme close-ups are taken with a 2:1 diopter that attaches over the port for the 105 mm lens. Shooting this can be a challenge because if there is the slightest bit of surge or current or your subject is moving around a lot, you’re pretty much toast. It can be really tough keeping your subject in the viewfinder. It’s kind of like trying to catch a housefly with chopsticks.
