Silver medal in the Wide Angle category on the 14th CMAS Underwater Photography World Championship in Cayo Largo (Cuba) last week!!
It was a wonderful experience. Together with my assistant / buddy Corne Bolders I was able to shoot some nice photos. Sea temperature was comfortable and visibility was OK.
The wind was quite strong creating big waves causing a strong swell. Supermacro was hard and I didn’t get a chance to use the new Light Shaping Device.
The big waves however provided a stunning environment to shoot an extrordinary photo…my wide angle shot of the waves was rewarded with a Silver Medal.
I achieved the 8th position on the overall ranking!
I met a lot of interesting people and had a great time with the other Dutch team, our team captain and the whole Dutch delegation!
