This Little Shrimp was hard to shoot i almost give up because i could not get the Eyes in Focus the other big deal was to get the strobe in the right position because the Shrimp where hiding in a small Crack.

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!

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