in focus 81 - Spring 2005

Cover photo: Alex Mustard. Diver in silversides - Eden Rock, George Town, Grand Cayman. During the summer the caves and shipwrecks around Grand Cayman fill
up with tiny silverside fish. On film I always struggled with exposure, but shooting them on digital this summer, with instant image review to help my exposures, made it much easier. Through trial and error, I chose to slightly over expose the background to get better separation of the diver to avoid him beiing lost in a dark background.
Nikon D100, 10.5mm, Subal Housing. Subtronic strobes. F8 @ 1/90th.
