Shots taken of a subject between 3 inches and 1 foot (7.5 to 30cm) in size (e.g. large fish or diver head) that dominates the frame - any background is incidental and occupies LESS THAN 50% of frame
Sea Art A free swimming crinoid is resting on a sea fan. We were not able to dive Bloody Bay Wall for the first part of trip to Little Cayman - but still had great dives - Love the textures and colors in this shot. Oly OMD-EM1.

"Golden Portrait II"
I angled my strobes to light just the face. I used a high shutter speed to keep the water blue and provide contrast to the yellow. A shallow depth of field kept focus on just the face and eyes. No filters or Photoshop.
