I think it’s a cuttlefish…

I think this is a cuttlefish… but I’m really not sure. Anyway, I think it’s a not-to-bad picture: certainly not the sort of thing professional dive photographer would bring back, but I’m not a diver: this was shot at the Underwater World, Sunshine Coast.

An almost impossible shot to get back in the days of film, digital capture has allowed me to ramp up the ISO, leave the flash in the bag and shoot through glass to capture the image. A little tweaking in Aperture and I have a great shot of an interesting sea creature.

Hardware: Olympus EP-1, 17mm f/2.8
Exposure: ISO 1600, 1/80 @ f/2.8
