"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.

"Squid In High Key"
I spent about 1 1/2 hrs with some playful squid on a shallow shore dive. I pointed my camera straight up under the squid against the sky & intentionally overexposed the sun to blow out the sky & leave just the squid as subject.
