WHAT IS ELASMODIVER?

Not just Shark Pictures: Elasmodiver contains photos of sharks, skates, rays, and chimaera's from around the world. Elasmodiver began as a simple web based shark field guide to help divers find the best places to encounter the different species of sharks and rays that live in shallow water but it has slowly evolved into a much larger project containing information on all aspects of shark diving and shark photography.

There are now more than 5000 shark pictures  and sections on shark evolution, biology, and conservation. There is a large library of reviewed shark books, a constantly updated shark taxonomy page, a monster list of shark links, and deeper in the site there are numerous articles and stories about shark encounters. Elasmodiver is now so difficult to check for updates, that new information and pictures are listed on an Elasmodiver Updates Page that can be accessed here:

SHARK PHOTOGRAPHY 101

 

shark photography

Banded wobbegong copyright Andy Murch all rights reserved.

Shark Photography can be a challenging subject but for many underwater photographers the reward of capturing the moment with one of the world's most formidable ocean creatures is worth the struggle and frustration.

To get good photographs of sharks you don't have to have the world's best camera or go to the most exotic locations to get spectacular images. A few short lessons from an experienced shark photographer can be a big help but before you read all of the 'how to photograph sharks' pages, please take a look at the 'ethics' page at the top of the list.

The Ethics of Photographing Sharks

Shark Photography - Composition

Shark Photography - Strobe use

Shark Photography - Exposure challenges

Shark Photography - Shooting Sharks at Night
