Description

Sometimes you just say f$%k it with photography, you might have spent 30 minutes on a single subject and you know it’s not working. Current, muck, sand, air, shitty divers & of course faulty equipment can all cause a shot not to work right, I was having one of those days trying to get a photo of an Ambon Scoprion Fish.

In the end I gave up on the Ambon and went hunting for other subjects, usually I don’t bother much with Cuttlefish anymore, there are a lot around, not very rare in terms of what people want to see and they usually spook pretty easy. I’d just come across one very well camouflaged into the sand, but he wasn’t moving much so thought I’d give him a chance.

Turned out OK I think, the Cuttlefish was happy to stay for a few camouflaged shots, then got angry with me and the light and decided on a threat display, the cool thing was normally when they do this, they have a tendency to jet backwards away from your camera rig.

Lucky for me, this guy decided to be bold and get his arms up right in front of where I was, which allowed me to get a few quick snaps right down his gullet. Here is the one I liked most.

Enjoy!

Glass Shrimp – Well That’s What I’m Calling It Anyway

If you can't find a door make one, it's a favourite saying of mine I apply to photography, essentially, if you can't find interesting critters to photograph, try taking interesting photographs of critters that most people will dis-regard. The dive in question was a muck/macro dive with not much goin [...]

Angry Cuttle Fish

Occasionally in underwater photography you do get a little too close to your subjects, the thrill of what you are doing can sometimes get the better of you and you think, just one more inch, just a little bit closer, most of the time, no problem, the critter will stay still, move off or give you a w [...]

Leafy Scorpion Fish – Ghostly White

For me one of the hardest of all the scorpion fish's to find is this one, the Leaf or Leafy Scorpion. Why is it so hard to find, when other species like bearded and devils literally turn up everywhere, good question, I don't know the answer, just that their rarity makes them a very exciting opportun [...]

Stone Fish Staghorn Sentinel

Referring to Stone Fish as Sentinel's is probably a bad description for them, Sentinel's & Gargoyle's are actually silent protectors of the weak and helpless, where as Stone Fish typically prey on the defenseless for a snack. So are they good guys, definitely not, they lie in wait till something is [...]
