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
Third place Monthly HotShots shortlistedShortlisted!

Editor's Comment
Very impressive technique! White background with minimum post processing is very hard to achieve, especially while lighting up the subject so well.
