Nothing says “Little Cayman” like the jaw-dropping sight of a stingray whipping up the powdery sand. But how do you ensure you capture such epic shots when you next drop by for a visit? Easy: Just read Tiago Peixoto’s comprehensive technique article just published on Backscatter. And what qualifies Tiago as your main man for photo tips on shooting these famous residents? Even easier: He’s the certified Backscatter Photo Pro at Reef Divers Photo Center at Little Cayman Beach Resort—which also happens to be Backscatter’s chosen venue for its awesome Digital Shootout.

Tiago leaves no stone unturned in his article, which takes the reader from locating Little Cayman’s southern stingrays and the typical types of poses and behaviors you’ll encounter, to the gear and settings you should use, mastering flash positioning and tweaking strobe power. The feature is also peppered with loads of useful tips and tricks. In short, you’ll be perfecting “The Whip Shot” and “The Feeding Shot” in no time at all!
