"Starry Starry Day"
Starfish Point, Grand Cayman
The star effect from the sun, and reflected on the water, was achieved by shooting with a small aperture, not Photoshop.

I've been experimenting with wide apertures when shooting my macro images lately. Here, I focused on this spotted cleaner shrimp's eye, letting everything else in front and behind blur.

"Flight" - When I photographed this Spanish hogfish I went for an artistic look: I used a slow shutter speed and waited until the fish was racing over of a field of jagged lettuce leaf coral to provide background texture.

I set my strobes in position to light just the front of this very long tube sponge. All of the sudden, this graysby swam up from the far back of the tube and checked me out, then just as quickly disappeared back down into deep recesses of the sponge.

Juvenile Boxfish. This boxfish was bobbing and around coral and sponges, but nothing that was an attractive background. So I dialed up my aperture to f/3.2 to make a soft background.

A diver models for me inside the Prince Albert shipwreck in Roatan, Honduras. I attached a strobe to the back of her tank and had her hold a Triggerfish sensor to make the strobe fire behind her, lighting up the background.

This seahorse was clinging to sealife as I prepared to photograph it. I had just gotten in position when the seahorse started free swimming and I was able to get this shot.

"Dream Of The Stingray"
I used a slow shutter speed while panning slightly fast to achieve an artistic blur on both the background and stingray. Photographed just under the surface with the camera pointing slightly up to capture the reflection.
