Nice capture!

Behind The Lens

Location
Simon's town in south africa
Time
Daytime
Lighting
Natural light because marine mammals don't like strobe light
Equipment
NikonD750, 14-24mm 2.8, nauticam housing
Inspiration
These guys are super playful and challenging to photograph. the green color is different than the classic blue one too.
Editing
I increased brightness and the shadow.
In my camera bag
My camera is a Nikon D750. I have 4 lenses : 14-24, 24-85, 150-600 and a macro 105mm.
Feedback
If you want to use strobes in green water prefer a cool light rather than a warm one.
