Spawning Smallmouth Bass

Recommended Posts

Here is really the results from my first underwater session. I'm shooting the GH4 in a Nauticam housing with the LUMIX 7-14 on this shot. The image was taken in Northern Minnesota on a small 600 acre lake, with 10-15 foot of water clarity. The Smallie is in the processing of bedding, which is protecting the little rock structure she built in a flooded tree. I did all of my post processing in LR5.

 

Here is the info:

 

1/250 sec at f/ 4.5 iso 200

 

I'm curious to hear some feedback! Thanks!

Hi Ben,

I love that you shot it in portrait on your first underwater session. I'm thinking you may want to try it in the original aspect ratio or even think about how it would print as an 8x10. I would increase the contrast a touch, up the clarity if you have it on your processing tool. It could also look nice with a bit more sharpening to my eye but that's very subjective. I'd print that image and hang it on the wall. You will make better images in the future but you never forget your first. Here is what it might look like as a 8 x 10 ratio;
