One of the best ways to learn photography is to see other photographers’ work. We try to find some of the best underwater photographers in the world, and showcase their work, along with the gear they use, to help other aspiring photographers improve, learn new skills and get inspired.
This week we will feature the talented Itai Grisaru!
My name is Itai Grisaru, I am an enthusiast underwater photographer and a marine biology student based in Israel. I started from diving in the Red Sea, and from then in the last 12 years I dove over 800 dives, most of them occurred in Australia, Indonesia and Israel. My passion for underwater photography started four years ago when I turned 21. I quickly realized that I am mostly interested in close up macro photography. I love the challenge in finding these tiny critters, often no larger than a thumbnail. What I like about macro photography is that good visibility isn’t always necessary. I love the challenge in finding these tiny organisms in harsh conditions, it makes the finding much more exciting.
The equipment I’m using is canon g7x mark II, Nauticam housing, Sea&sea YS-D2 strobes x2, Weefine WF068 smart focus 1000 torch.
I also use diopters for my macro shots: Nauticam CMC1, Noodilab moby x3.8 for super macro, and in extremely tiny subjects I stack both of them!
I also love using the Inon UFL-M150 ZM80 Underwater Micro Fisheye Lens for unique close focus- wide angle shots.
For wide angle shots im using the Nauticam WWL-1 wet wide lens.
