6th place in Unterwasser Visions

Less is more was the theme for the Unterwasser Visions photo contest in June 2014, and my shooting star nudibranch received praise from the jury. The image was presented in the September issue of the magazine.



Posted on Aug 2, 2014

Sometimes it can be very challenging to think out of the box and try to find a new take on a familiar subject.

The colorful and pretty Polycera quadrilineta nudibranch is almost asking to be shot up-close and personal - but this time around I tried shooting "small macro".

I tried to picture the nudibranch as small as possible instead of filling the frame completely with a nice but too often seen frontal portrait. The jury seemed to like the idea:

The nudibranch looks like a shooting star, while the suspended particles play the part of the universe. A wonderful interpretation of a theme that seemed difficult for many. Look at it and learn, they wrote (translated from German).

Victory for Team Norway

In the team contest we were able to secure the first victory of the year, thanks to strong entries from all members.

Team Norway 2014 consists of Lill Haugen, Bjørnar Nygård, Ann Karin Matberg and myself.
