Egypt, Marsa Alam, Red Sea. Colors harmonies of underwater close up photographs.
Most underwater close-up photographs show portraits of fish, crustaceans and other reptiles. They also often attach to show animal behavior. These techniques used to show the underwater life is interesting but it is very restrictive because from one photographer to another one, the images are alike.
We tried to develop other methods to approach this type of photography. Even if we keep this kind approach with animal portraits or animal behaviors, we add other dimensions such as color harmonies in several colors or patterned lights. Both are photographic techniques that we use in landscape photography. This is a good way to surprise the audience because we use the imagination and the artistic education of the people.
They are particularly useful in close-up photography because the frames are very tight and scenes particularly well defined. It is more difficult to apply in wide angle, even if sometimes they are suitable as one of the slideshow displayed below.
In our close-up shots, of course, the subject occupies an important place because it is the main component of the composition. But we strive to show up the subject differently through colors and lights.
The gallery below shows some close-up shots taken at Marsa Alam in the Red Sea in Egypt.

We are fascinated and passionate about the beauties of nature. We love to see the landscapes and observe wild animals whether on land or underwater. We have chosen to become professional photographers to share the emotions we feel when we observe nature whether it be on land or underwater. Our goal is to create art with our photographs. We always try to transform the banal into a contemplative and artistic interpretation.
We are wildlife professional photographers, landscape professional photographers and underwater professional photographers. We also strive to document nature with a focus on conservation and education.
We make art prints from our artistic photographs. These art prints are available on our website. We make exhibitions to show all the beauties and the incredible richness of nature that surrounds us.
We also love to share our love for the beauties of nature with other photographers. To communicate our know-how and to exchange our techniques and our points of view, we organize wildlife photography workshops, underwater photography workshops and landscape photography workshops. We gather together people who have the same passion as us for the beautiful photographs taken in nature.
