Description

It is always a beautiful day when you find Sea Horse while diving, they are such weird little underwater specimens that you can’t help but sit and stare, occasionally I remember to take photographs of them. Sygnathiformes are notoriously hard critters to take quality photos of, they have a habit of turning away from lights, strobes and divers, so all you get is their back, I have a strong feeling even the noise from our regulators disturbs them.

So when photographing Sea Horse’s you need to breathe quite, and only light them up at the last possible second. My usual behavior when I find them is to look for something similar, so if it is in a sea fan, do all my aperture and lighting settings well away from the subject, set everything up before I go in for the shot and only light them in the instant I’m pulling the trigger on the photo. This tends to be the only sure fire way with Synathiformes to not disturb them and force them deeper into their immediate environment, they like to hide when the lights come out.

Striped Eel Catfish Bait Ball

Striped Eel Catfish are somewhat of an oddity as most people associate Catfish with freshwater and big old ugly looking things. This photo depicts a small bait ball of extremely tiny ocean faring Catfish, no more than 2 - 3 cm each these little guys were picking their way across the black volcanic s [...]

Juvenile Cuttlefish

When cuttlefish are extremely small, only a 10 - 15cm across they have a habit of coming to the reef or sandy area, making small holes in the ground in which they sit, then camouflaging themselves to the surrounding environment not only by color, but also by texture. The most amazing part of this be [...]

Orange Painted Frog Fish

I promised not to post any more Frog Fish photos about 3 months ago, I literally have thousands of them, but I really really liked this one, so I just had to break the promise and post him up. I love the vibrant orange on the grey of the sea bed, the contrast for me in this shot is killer. I wish [...]
