And images here are the brief list “What I saw” during the 5 days workshop.
Actually, we saw a lot more critters other then in these images. Me and two more leaders didn’t dive with camera all the time and I feel it’s works out well. Dive “one on one” with each participant to help with strobe positioning, camera settings and composition underwater.
I would like to thanks to all 12 participants of our photo workshop and I hope everyone was able to learn something. And Hope to see you again soon!
Special thanks to “Dive Society Dumaguete” for excellent dive operation during the workshop.

Quote from Wikipedia.
Caprellidae is a family of amphipods commonly known as skeleton shrimps. Their common name denotes the threadlike slender body which allows them to virtually disappear among the fine filaments of seaweed, hydroids and bryozoans. They are sometimes also known as ghost shrimps. Caprellidae contains 88 genera in three subfamilies.
