This shot of a clownfish was taken at an LFS, a great capture when you consider the lighting in the tank and the use of
an on camera speedlight.

Green Severum

Posted by:

This is a fantastic capture of a beautiful Green Severum.

The use of overhead lighting and fill in flash from the front, set at around half power really captures the fish in it’s full glory.

It is a super sharp shot, beautifully lit with a great DOF.

a photograph anyone would be proud of!

Frontosa Picture

Posted by:

This is a good example of a male Burundi Frontosa, the photo was taken with an sb800 speedlight triggered remotely over the fish.

The use of the overhead lighting eliminates shadows and really brings out the lovely blue hue in the finnage.

A nice sharp photo of a very nice Cichlid!
