A feeding Guineafowl Puffer (Arothron meleagris)


Subject: A Guineafowl Puffer (Arothron meleagris) is feeding on the twigs of a black coral bush (Antipathes sp.). Only a quarter of these usually white-spotted black fish come in this yellow variation. They feed mainly on live tips of branching corals.

Technique: When filming under water the only sound that is really audible on the footage is the diver’s breath. Sound is an important part of the clip and therefor it is best to remove all sounds from the original footage and add suitable sounds to increase the veracity of the scene. Many sounds can be easily found on the Internet.
