Surgeonfish

Someone, a good buddy Jack, told me the name of this fish. He’s seen them in Hawaii. They don’t have the same color but it’s the same fish. I knew someone would help me with the name. Image one and then fourteen frames later you can see the color balance at depth and in the shallows. I came up shooting and didn’t realize that the color had changed with the sun penetrating the shallow water and reds were preserved. I suppose I could try RAW next – stubborn. It’s a hobby, not a living. So whether the shot is on target is up to me. I’d like to control things from the camera side of things rather than Photoshop. But shooting RAW means you don’t have to struggle with color balance?
