Moon Jellyfish

IMG_6436

Three years and I have never seen a jellyfish in the open. Today there were dozens in the water. IMG_6427I was with a dive buddy not inclined to wait. So I shot on the move. Try to get focus and lighting correct upon a subject that is largely transparent. IMG_6426It’s theoretical and near impossible. But you have to love these point and shoot automatic cameras. And then Photoshop has an automatic setting to enhance the poorly saturated image. IMG_6425But you still have to have an image to work with. I got a few. Unlike National Geographic I don’t have to pick a single frame. Unfortunately I did not have to many frames to choose from. IMG_6431Nat Geo would have wanted another diver in the image too. That is for another advanced lesson.
