View Full Version : Special Mask for taking photos?

Just started doing uw photog and noticed if I close my eyes, or at least don't stare directly at the fish they stay put longer, letting me get in closer for a shot. Any experience like this?

Any experience using the colored or mirrored masks?

Fish seem to know when they are being stalked. I find that if you camp close they may come to you for the shot. But if you follow they will mostly exit the area quickly.

Makes sense.... maybe check out the masks designed for spearfishing?

I prefer to be able to see a divers eyes in case of issues and communication.

Fish will avoid a diver or be wary if you look directly at them. You can try to slowly approach from a side angle or keep your camera in front of your face to shield your eyes while lining up your options for the shot.
