Hi all - Here are a couple nudibranchs I shot this weekend. My first time shooting manual, and I can't wait for another strobe to help fill in shadows. All comments welcome. Thanks!

Congratulations on your Nudi shots !
They are great,in my opinion the use of just the one strobe gives your images depth, and helps to isolate the subject by creating pleasant shadows.

I like the one strobe look. As nudidiver points out, you get some texture to the shots with a single strobe. Having two strobes is nice but you are getting great shots already.

Hi Brent!

It was nice talking with you last Saturday on the Seabass charter... I like the single strobe nudi shots! My favorite is the third one... I assume you found the big fat juicy Hermissendas on our third dive... We saw a couple of bigguns on that dive, too! Of course I had the fisheye lens on, doh!

Thanks everyone! Dana - we did see the Hermissendas on the third dive. There were a couple right next to each other. Great hanging out with you too. Hope to see you on another dive soon!
