"Clownfish Eggs"


Paolo won a gift certificate from Bluewater Travel!


Story Behind the Shot: There are three key components that resulted in this photo...

1. I used a 24 mm lens and an electronic reverse ring adaptor +  40 mm extension ring  to  get a  great magnification. 5 mm fills the long side of the frame - this means  4.5X  optical  magnification on my cropped Canon 7D  sensor (22.5 mm). 

2. My friend and  dive master Ajiex Dharma in Tulamben was able to find these clown fish eggs and assist me  during the shoot holding the snoot in the right position .

3. A lot of patience to manually focus and composing this shot
