Blacksaddle baby filefish (Paraluteres prionuru) and Crinoid Squat Lobster (Allogalathea elegans). I was aiming for the filefish when the squat lobster started climbing up the sponge in the foreground, creating this unique effect. It’s quite smaller than the fish and was much closer, so it wasn’t much of a threat. Still it looks like it is, and that’s what really matter.
As I saw the squat lobster climbing, just lowered the f. value to make sure it would be defocused, while the fish, since it was still and parallel to the sensor, would remain in focus. Right strobe is doing nothing, as there was no room for it, but it’s not really needed.
