My name is Emilie and I learned to scuba dive in 2012, right here in Hong Kong, as a result of a rather random decision. Turns out it was an excellent one! Since day one I have been diving very regularly both locally and overseas, teaching myself underwater photography, and continuing with training. I undertook Advanced Nitrox and Deco Procedures courses in February 2015. In 2015 I also began learning to freedive. It would be hard for me to name something that I don’t find fascinating about the underwater world.
About this site
The aim of this site is to share images, information and insights from below the surface. I will discuss dive sites, underwater photography, training experiences and more. The focus will be on diving in Hong Kong and its unique marine ecosystem, but I will also cover overseas travel experiences and photographs. Hence green blue sea — green for Hong Kong and blue for abroad (usually)!
For underwater photography, I use a Canon 5D MkII in a Hugyfot housing with two Sea&Sea YS-D1 strobes. I am still very much a learner of underwater photography methods and this site is an outlet for some of my work. Prior to January 2015 I was using a Sony RX100 in a Nauticam housing.
Other than that …
I am rarely without my camera on land either. My previous and now retired Hong Kong photoblog is still online, take a look here. I also take photos for the regular Time Out Hong Kong page ‘Hidden Hong Kong’. On this site, all photos are my own unless specified otherwise.
