IT'S THE LITTLE THINGS
Go slowly, look closely, and killer nudi shots could be your reward
ALEX MUSTARD

It’s said that the best things come in small packages, and plenty of divers would agree. The underwater world becomes ever more fascinating when you learn to dive slowly, look closely and appreciate the little things. Nudibranchs and sea slugs are mostly smaller than the end of your thumb, but their intense coloration makes them the ocean’s brightest jewels. (Look for the social media post doing the rounds comparing their patterns and David Bowie’s costumes!)

Nudibranchs are a photographic treasure you can find all around the world, as common in chilly waters as they are in the tropics. They are irresistible both because of their looks and their speed—these gastropod mollusks move at a snail’s pace, which means they aren’t going to outrun even the most methodical shooter. However, we still need to focus on the details to create standout images.
