Schooling fish can be frustrating subjects to photograph, often thwarting valiant attempts by photographers to herd them into visually pleasing aspects and to within striking distance of the lens. This school of “Silversides” were no different, being difficult to approach and unpredictable in movement. Around the jetty at Loloata Island Resort in Papua New Guinea, I spent time trying to capture this resident school, with this image being one of the most pleasing. Image taken on the 20th November 2008 using a Nikon D200, Subtronic strobe and a 10.5mm fish eye lens. Camera settings were ISO100, f8, 1/100th.
