I haven't posted images in a while and am feeling a bit stuck with my usual subjects and technique, so here are two from my most recent dives. Comments on new ways to shoot these subjects would be most welcome.
These two white eyed morays did not seem too happy to be sharing a crevice. In fact, I rarely see morays sharing a spot. The slightly smaller one kept twisting around and nipping at the bigger one then they would wrestle a bit almost like kittens play-fighting. The lighting is a bit harsh, as I couldn't find a way to get my right side strobe around the obstructing bit of reef. Maybe I should have brought the left side strobe up and closer to the top of the port?
This wire coral shrimp presented a promising composition as it was nestled into a loop of the coral. Again I could not move the strobes to eliminate the shadow on the subject due to space constraints. Also I should have left more space to crop and rotate!
These both feel like cases where a single strobe more or less centered and up a bit higher might have produced better results, at the risk of harsher shadows. As an aside, I find it challenging sometimes to position my relatively new Z-240 strobes for macro and really miss the tiny S-2000 strobes that I should not have sold!
