September 27, 2014. Underwater photo project in the Red Sea off Egypt coasts

September 27, 2014. Underwater photo project dedicated to the Red Sea. During three weeks, the photos were taken from Safaga to the reefs of St. Johns going through Marsa Alam and the Fury Shoals. To illustrate our passion for the beauties of the underwater nature, we have chosen to photograph the top of the reefs near the surface to show the power of the elements and how the waves have shaped the seascapes. Another target was a picture work on the beauty of coral reefs.

We tried to give another dimension of our photos favoring large depth of field on large seacapes. Southern Red Sea is still in good condition. The reefs have not been destroyed by scuba divers. We tried to show that these places are still privileged and that we must at all costs, preserve them for the future.

We have virtually no photograph in close-ups because even if these photos show the variety and diversity of species, they do not quite show the beauty of the underwater nature. In this photo project, we favored the wide-angle photography to highlight underwater environments enhanced by the colors and the lights so special in this region.
