Really nice! Especially the shot of the donut nudi and the backlit leaf fish! Well done! 👍

 

Did you use a snoot for the backlighting of the leaf fish?

Great pictures! I really like the background of the pipefish, gives it an artistic/abstract touch.

 

Thanks, I really like this one myself - once I saw the review underwater I stayed with him quite a while

Cheers Chris, yes the leaf fish was snooted from the rear of the fish

Yep, super pics, Mike. The juvenile frogfish and the backlight one especially. Nice job!

 

Thanks Time, I dropped lucky with him - 3 yawns then we left him to it

Nice pics.

Were you diving with Ajiex?

Thanks Luko, and yes with Ajiex. Superb guide as he's quick to grasp what you want to do with lighting etc. He was a little obsessed with getting me to do some colour abstract stuff like this which isn't really my thing but works now and again

Hahaha.

Yes, he's been my guide every year since he began freelancing 8 or 9 years ago.

Very nice chap. I warned him when he started with colored lights (I think some asian photog showed him) I didn't want any of that stuff, he still tries but that has become a running joke between us.

 

I see sometimes he recreates similar photos with various guests (thats' how I can recognize the guide)
