    Hi Vivid-Pixers!

    I think this mantra applies to just about every underwater photographer in the world. After all, colorful fishes are one of the underwater world’s feature attractions, and for photographers many species are simply irresistible. But despite all of the things that fishes have going for them- color, beauty, eye-catching antics and fascinating behaviors etc.- it is still possible to take rather boring photographs of even some of the more handsome fishes.

    Consider these two shots of flame angelfish as examples. With all of that bright orangeish-red and its handsome pattern, this fish just screams “take my picture”. But even this cute little jewel needs to be photographed in a pleasing pose.

    Boring! At least, this shot is boring when compared to the next image with the same species photographed in a pose that appears more animated and esthetically pleasing.

    A much more pleasing composition of a flame angelfish.

    Realising that even great looking fish still need to be shot well, years ago I created five categories of fish photographs for my personal use. CLICK HERE to read the rest of the blog:
