Expecting to capture large animal encounters while diving with East Coast Divers, I brought my 16-35mm wide angle lens, so it was a bit of a shock when our dive guide pointed out this lovely frogfish sitting on top of a group of sponges. Since we were with a somewhat large group of divers, I had limited time to spend on this great subject therefore I had to quickly change my camera and strobe settings. Fortunately the frogfish was in a great position which allowed me to get close enough for a “close focus wide angle” shot. After firing off a few shots, I moved aside let others take their turn. While waiting for my second round, I reviewed my photos and noticed my settings were not good. So I changed my settings, fired off my second round of shots and then swam very hard to catch up to the group. But it was worth the effort as I am very pleased with the new images resulting in this photo of the week.
