6th Place Macro Ocean Art 2018 Stefano Proakis

6th Place Macro

Stefano Proakis




The Story: This photo of a shy blenny was taken with the help of my diving buddy and model Isabella, who was holding a Flash Subtronic Alpha Pro with a dedicated Snoot Retra focused on the fish. It withdrew as soon as he saw the pilot light of the snoot on his head. So Isabella pointed the light near the subject and as soon as it looked out of the den I panned the camera moving from the left to the right with a very slow shutter speed.

Location:  Argentario, Italy

Equipment Used:  Nikon D800E Camera, Seacam Housing, Nikon 60mm Macro Lens, Subtronic Alpha Pro Strobe, Retra Snoot

Settings: F36, 1/6 sec, ISO 100
