Great White Shark In Motion - Guadalupe Island, Mexico

    Portfolio & Services

    Getting dynamic images of such an enigmatic animal proved more difficult than I originally thought. Maybe it is because leading up to this trip, I studied as many images as I could to better prepare, and in the process of doing so, saw some of the best and most amazing great white shark images in existence.

    I did get a few I liked, and this one worked really well in black and white.

    Nikon D300
    Nikkor 12-24mm @ 24mm, +2 B&W diopter
    1/125sec @ f7.1, ISO 400
    Ikelite Housing, 8" Dome Port
    Single DS-125 Strobe
