Hi!

First shoot from my hollidays in Mexico, a French Angelfish (Pomacanthus paru)

Image

I know the focus is not like I wanted, I think I should have close more.

those are not easy fish to photography, nice work. it looks like the focus is on the body instead of on the eyes though.

Where were you in Mexico?

I was 30 km North Playa del Carmen on the "Riviera Maya".

For the focus it is absolutely that. I was shooting an other thing and rising head I see this one, so I try but not really the time to set how I wanted. They're very shy those fishes.

French Angels to me seem to be of two mind sets. If you watch them for a brief time you can often tell if they are going to cooperate for a photo. Some are quite busy and are in a hurry to get from point A to point B. They will generally not stop to pose!
Sometimes you will find them feeding, staying just in one area. If you don't chase them the French will settle down nicely and allow for lots of shots. Often they will get very curious.
