I tagged along on a spearfishing expedition to Point Loma, and after spotting and pointing out a fantastic halibut who was soon to become a fantastic dinner, I cruised over to the reef to spend some quality time with the nudibranchs.
The kelp forest can be a pretty dreamy place. The light coming through the kelp canopy has an ethereal beauty, and the gentle sway of the kelp stalks in light surge could rock you to sleep.
I wanted to capture that surreal, unearthly quality in this week's nudibranch photos.
I used my Subsee +10 diopter to get really close to these Spanish Shawl nudibranchs for a soft depth of field with creamy bokeh. The shallow focus and bright lighting is a more artsy effect than I usually go for, but I love how it came out!
