The smallest subject ever photographed - Idiomysis

Post Number:#1  Postby toodus » Wed Mar 04, 2015 6:51 pm

I've photographed some really minute subjects before like nudibranchs (e.g Sagaminepteron, etc), hairy shrimps, etc but never an idiomysis. Imagine fruit flies around your long exposed apple or banana. That is the size of an idiomysis.

I was in Pom Pom Island recently and gave my wishlist to the spotter and she was able to find a group of idiomysis for me. They were just flying non stop. They don't even perch on a rock ...they continuously fly and fly and fly. To take a shot of one is impossible but I am the Bulletproof Tiger of Underwater Compact Camera ..so...

No crop, no edit, no double strobes,

I am using a G15 with Fantasea housing, one strobe and +10 subsee macro lens....
