The Great Barrier Reef In Full Colour. Introducing ‘Lower Levels’

The Great Barrier Reef In Full Colour. Introducing ‘Lower Levels’

Posted by Brooke Miles-Ogden on

A beautiful reef-scape will forever be one of my favourite scenes to capture under to sea. 

Lower Levels

Balanced in perfect buoyancy, with your breath in harmony and your ears silenced by the gentle pressure of water above you. Mindfully taking in all the layers, colours, shapes and life that a healthy reef scape provides.

This is one of the reasons the Great Barrier Reef is so special. There are scenes like this scattered along 2300kms of the Queensland Coast, and it's truly splendid to see with your own eyes! 😁 

Although these simple shots seem relatively easy to capture, there are still a few decisions to make (all whilst managing the underwater elements too!)

A few thoughts that went through my head... 

- Which section of the reef had the best layers, (or levels as I later called it!) 

- To shoot vertically or horizontally, 

- Getting the right balance of foreground staghorn coral without it taking over the other corals in the background...

I was really happy with the result, this is definitely a new favourite and looks amazing on the gallery wall.
