More Than A Mouthful

It’s hard to shoot one fish. Two is even more difficult. Truly, it’s point and shoot. But even more difficult is the color balance. As you change depth, the light changes constantly. Fortunately the sun is blazing bright all the time. And if that’s not enough everything is in motion – you, the fish, the camera and the particles in the water. So you have to move in close to avoid the diffusion. And the fish move away. Zoom won’t save you. And then there’s camera shutter lag… nag, nag, nag. Oh well, I don’t think the black and white will fit into the mouth.
