Subject: A Pixy Hawkfish (Cirrhitichtchys oxycephalus) is nervously hopping around. These little predators of very small fish and crustaceans have no swim bladder. When hungry they lie-in-wait until an unsuspicious victim ventures in their vicinity to suddenly dart for it.
Technique: The colours in this clip are, though natural, quite bright and striking and may be too vibrant for some. Nevertheless, colours are extremely important in video and film because they create the video’s mood. Reducing the colour’s vibrancy would make this clip less playful.
