How did you get that shot?

Mary Lundin has been working as a photographer for more than 40 years – we spotted this amazing shot on National Geographic and asked her if she could tell us about how and where she took it.

How did you get that shot?

“Most of underwater photography is luck. Being in the right place at the right time. With experience and research, a diver can learn about animal behavior and then know where to look and what to look for.'

“This is a photo of an Upside Down Jellyfish. They call them that because they generally swim upside down. This one, for whatever reason is not. I didn’t stage the diver above. He just happened to be there."

The photo was taken in Fijian waters right off the northern coast in what they call the Bligh Waters. It was taken in July 2007 with a Nikon D100 in a Light & Motion Housing and a dome port. Two Ikelite 200 strobes. ISO 200, 12mm lens for 1/60 sec. at f/11.”
