Travel Photographer Matt Considine

Welcome to my website, I hope you enjoy my photography and stories from around the world.

Using my photography I aim to capture timeless images that illuminate the diversity of cultures and people of our world. My aim is to obtain images that respect human dignity and celebrate existence.

In addition I want to raise the awareness of some of the most amazing places and wildlife that exist in the natural world. I hope that when you see my images you will be inspired to visit these places. I want to illustrate why it is worth conserving these places and the plant and animal life they support.

To achieve these aims my travel photography encompasses images of people and their cultures as well as images of wildlife and landscape photography.

My Shadow in Jellyfish Lake Palau

Swimming in Jellyfish lake Palau is a fantastic experience. There are many chances to obtain interesting photographs, but I was looking for something a bit different. As I was snorkeling along the surface, shafts of light flickered past me and down into the depths leaving the impression of my shadow in the lake.

To capture this image a reasonable depth of field was needed, I used F/14. Also the shutter speed needed to be fast enough to capture the moving columns of light, so 1/30 did the trick and then ISO 400 to make all that work.

Actually most visitors to Jellyfish lake will not see this because they visit in the morning or afternoon, since the jellies bunch up more as they follow the light, but I visited a couple of times and once in the middle of day.
