Raja Ampat Coral Reefs Wide Angle: Panoramic Views of Indonesia’s Underwater Paradise

Raja Ampat's coral reefs are the most biodiverse on the planet. Hard corals, soft corals, schools of fish shimmering in the clear water. The variety of colors and photo subjects is unbelieveable.

I love to shoot underwater with natural light whenever possible, and many dives in Raja Ampat offered the opportunity to break out the wide angle lens and shoot without the strobe.

I'm using a Canon 5D Mark IV in a Liquid Eye water housing for most of these shots, I love the versatility this setup offers me for shooting fast-moving subjects like fish, to taking in the full beauty of the reef with an underwater panoramica photo.

Check out the gallery below to see the photo highlights, or see the all the photo galleries from our Raja Ampat liveaboard dive trip - from scuba diving, to aerial photos, to freediving, to the incredible wildlife and local people living in this amazing place. You can also see galleries from other Seven Seas liveaboard dive trips - my absolute favorite way to explore the awesome natural beauty and unique cultures of Indonesia.
