Photographer's Note

An island off the coast of Semporna, with a small cluster of stilted houses off its beach. Maiga island is one of the 8 islands making up the Tun Sakaran Islands Park, a group of islands, about 90 minutes boatride from Semporna. The nearest islands, Bodgaya and Bohey Dulang is only 20 minutes away to the east of this island. The viewfinder is facing north.

When shooting from a moving boat,or you can't get the boat to keep still, shoot at the highest shutterspeed possible, at your current ISO. You probably have to select the widest aperture for this. A good starting point is 1/1000s. If you can't get this, select the next ISO.

The best position to shoot an island or a part of it, is from the sea which is not exactly a stable place to shoot from. When shooting out at sea or expecting to see a body of water, clipped on your polarizer. It helps to remove reflection and saturate the colors. When shooting with polarizer,keep the sun somewhere behind or above you. It doesn't work well when the sun is anywhere in front.
