Dynamic fishes

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by Claudio Contreras

Strong currents and low light levels were perfect conditions for the image I was after, I wanted to emphasize movement in this Panamic porkfish school, thus I used the slowest possible shutter speed available to blur the lines and convey a sense of movement, also using flash to freeze the form of the fishes as I drifted past them.

Location: Cabo Pulmo National Park, Gulf of California, Mexico.
