Just a portrait of a proud papa`... Nikon D300s +105/2.8 micro twin YS250pro 1/60 f36 ISO100

by Gaetano Gargiulo
using a twin YS250 pro with snoots I achieved the full belack background with a lit subject... lens: tokina 10-17 +kenko 1.4x @14

by Gaetano Gargiulo
"Fade to Black" No weird PS tricks, this guy was hiding between pylons that acted like natural snoots. I left intentionally the scattering on the body of the fish to enhance the fading... hope you like it

by Gaetano Gargiulo
"fish" rocket" I guess that this little fellow was trying the kill its reflex in my dome... there was current and the dust lifted really seems the cloud left behind from a rocket to me...:-)

by Gaetano Gargiulo
"Fade to black"...

playing with the wide-angle at night (tokina 10-17 +1.4x kenko pro @11mm)

"under an artificial sun" playing with more than 2 strobes (5 in this case)

by Gaetano Gargiulo
"The sun kisses the beautiful..." trying to add the sun-bursts into the macro :-) my sun is a 4th strobe...

"staring at the sun"

rocket-squid

by Gaetano Gargiulo
she is very shy and difficult... it took me more than 10 minutes standing still to make her to understand that I was not a predator... her mate is as shy as she..

by Gaetano Gargiulo
"waxy" the skin of those sea-horses is like wax

by Gaetano Gargiulo
"waiting" and old Italian proverb says: "the patience is the virtue of the strong ones"... if this in true I would not like to have a frog-fish as enemy, I went diving 2 times in 2 different days and I found them exactly in the same position

by Gaetano Gargiulo
this guy was getting angry at me and every time I was raising my camera it was raising its tentacles...maybe thought I was a competitor??

Juvenille Green Moray Eeel.

by Gaetano Gargiulo
Ghost pipefishes are sometimes stranded by the current descending from the GBR to Sydney. Here they are shot in midwater with a very close aperture to just make their stunning color popping up...

by Gaetano Gargiulo
"the dark knight" no PS to achieve the background I used a 3rd strobe to blow the water. shot in Clifton too much south for them how long they will stay around is not known...

by Gaetano Gargiulo
... and then she looked at me with big brown eyes and said: "you ain't seen nothing yet..." :D

by Gaetano Gargiulo
Despite the appearance, the white background is not artificial. The water is so full of small algae that the strobe reflects almost entirely when angled. This shot is with 3 strobes to illuminate the subject too

by Gaetano Gargiulo
Now I know why they are called white sea-horses... they glow white :D

by Gaetano Gargiulo
Whaat? they said that ghosts cannot reflect in mirrors... (in reality what looks alike water surface is the high reflecting sand in Chowder bay and they are a pair...)

by Gaetano Gargiulo
They rarely swim... but when they do they are awesome... This fellow simply could not stands the noise of regs and swam away from divers as soon they they approach. it swims back and forth between 2 nearby pylons so I took this shot

by Gaetano Gargiulo
White sea-horse and I mean it :D

by Gaetano Gargiulo
Is this my best side?? This guy was so still that anemones started to use it as support (look close on its lips)
