Alex Mustard - Night Moves


A long exposure of bar jacks hunting over a coral reef at night. I am sure this image is not to everyone’s taste, but I find it interesting with the fish blurred into ghostly trails in the dark.

Location: Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands

    by the way, I would never have guessed what the ghostly motion is ...

    This is certainly a kind of fine art. It is also a matter of opportunity and insistence. We never know for sure what the result will be obtained. But sometimes they are amazing. Like this one. I really like this picture.

    I absolutely love this type of photography! Very creative. May I ask how you got the flash behind the sponges and your camera in front and was this done during a night dive? Remote setup?
