“Follow Me Guys” Project Picture 27/365

Follow Me Guys-27/365

Nikon D90   Nikkor 60mm   1/125   f/10.0   ISO 100

This picture is from a shore dive last weekend,the sea was a little bit rough and with lots of swell, so the visibility was bad reducing the chances to get usable pictures.

Although just after entering the water I found a school of  young Sand Steenbras “Lithognathus Mormyrus”,this three were following the rest of the group creating this nice composition.

Taking photographs of silver skin fishes requires to use the adequate strobe position as otherwise you can blow up the some parts of their body very easily, in this case I moved it to the upper right creating an angle of 45º between the camera and the strobe so the light rays illuminate the fish diagonally and the light gets reflected also 45º but to the left of the camera instead,this way you illuminate the subject properly but the excess of light does not hit the sensor.

Esta foto la hice en una inmersión de costa el pasado fin de semana, el mar estaba un poco revuelto y con mucho mar de fondo, por lo que la visibilidad era mala,reduciendo las posibilidades de sacar imágenes utilizables.

Justo después de entrar en el agua me encontré una escuela de alevines de Mabre o Herrera “Lithognathus Mormyrus”, estos tres seguían el resto del grupo creando esta composición tan interesante.

A la hora de fotografiar peces plateados hay que tener mucho cuidado en la colocación del flash para evitar quemar algunas partes de su cuerpo ,en este caso puse el flash en la parte superior derecha y con el flash creando un ángulo de 45 º asi los rayos iluminan el pez en diagonal y la luz se refleja 45 º pero hacia la izquierda de la camara. De esta manera iluminas el sujeto correctamente pero el exceso de luz no llega al sensor.
