In Topic: Seahorse from my 1sd dive with a dSLR

Jason,

I have many similar shots.  There are a couple of things you can try.  One is shooting a snoot to try to light only the seahorse.  Also try strobe positioning to focus light on the target and not as much on the background.  I have never tried it, but I have heard of people putting a piece of plastic or such behind to get a white or black background, but a lot of times that is limited by where your subject is and you obviously want to be careful not to stress the critters out too much as it can kill them.

Sorry, I had the dimensions on this wrong, it is an 8 inch dome, not 12.  I thought the ikelite port number was for the smaller acrylic dome.

I want to see a picture of the Aquiticia 12" port. 

Here you go Bill.  Let me know if you want me to shoot it differently.  I used the port in Anilao last year.  Can send you a link to those shots.  The dings on it aren't noticeable, but I had planned to send it in before I got my Nauticam rig.  Again, I'm just throwing it in to sweeten the deal.

Agree with Luko.  Beatrice is a great WA spot.  That said, that is where our guide found bumble bee shrimp so I was shooting macro.
