49. A safe haven for a shoal of Glassfish


Subject: A Black coral bush provides a safe haven for a shoal of Glassfish. These little fish are extremely vulnerable to predation and will therefor always be found close to an area where shelter is provided by nature. Swimming around the bush-like coral colony they will retreat to the safety of the cnidarian at the slightest sign of insecurity.

Technique: A wide-angle scene is in my opinion best filmed with a steady shot. Moving around with your camera will most likely disturb the marine life; fleeing fish won’t make good subjects. I Added the sound of wind chimes in the final product to accentuate the sudden movement of these little fish.
