VLOG: We regularly post short Marine Wildlife Videos an Photographs with a short explanation regarding the subject and the technique used to capture the image.

STOCK FOOTAGE: All the clips, shots and images that are produced by ourselves and published in our vlog can be purchased. For more info please send us an email with the reference number of the clip (in front of the posted title).

Subject: Rockskippers (Alticus monochrus) are amphibious blennies that inhabit rocky shorelines where they graze on benthic algae. In this supratidal zone they are regularly splashed by ocean water. They move by leaping from one spot to another. Because Rockskippers spend almost no time under water they belong to the world’s most terrestrial fishes.

Technique: Because the whole scene was filmed in 24FPS, it was almost impossible to create a slow motion section in the clip. We solved this by creating a series of freeze frames of 1 second each connected by cross dissolved transitions of also 1 second each. Thanks to the overlapping falling splashes of water in comparison to the motionless rock the result was quite surprising.
