Zoanthids “Out of the Dark” Free wallpaper

By Marcin Smok 10 years agoNo Comments

Click meI am really into dark, spooky images where one or two colors dominate the scene and create a specific mood to the viewer’s eye. I decided to somehow replicate that effect in coral photograph. I’ve chosen a zoanthid morph growing in my tank that has blue-ish center and green skirt, and using a blue gel filter on my flash, I took that exposure. I purposely underexposed the whole scene to create an illusion of polyps coming out of the dark.


Equipment: Nikon D7000 with Tamron 90mm lens, external flash. Settings: Aperture=f/22, Exposure time 1/100s, ISO:125


For all readers of reefs.com blog, I am releasing this image as a free wallpaper. You can download full size version here: http://photoreef.com/wallpapers/zoanthidswallpaper.jpg (click right mouse button and click Save image as…)
