A diver explores the engine room of the ex-USS Kittiwake. I used a slave strobe and placed it so it would burst light through the metal structure in front of the diver.

"Stars Above And Below"
Starfish are seen both through the surface of the water and below. No Photoshop: I used my wide angle dome port for this shot, carefully angling my camera housing in order to get both the over and under water views.

A two claw shrimp peers out from a purple vase sponge. This kind of shrimp is a rare find in Cayman! I used a shallow depth of field to focus just on the shrimp's eyes.

Cayman's beautiful North Wall, rich with life! An anenome, lots of little blue chromis, a snapper, sponges, colorful coral... I used my wide-angle dome port extension with my fisheye lens for a forced vingette.

A tiny spotted cleaner shrimp climbs on a warty corallimorph anemone. I lit the shrimp with one strobe, and lit the background with my second strobe to provide backlighting.

Fluorescing Goby - "Tie-Dye"
No color editing was done to this photo. The rainbow of colors is from shooting with my Nightsea fluorescence kit. The filters "excite" the fluorescence in the goby and coral.
