Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken by Lehua rock in Hawaii. We did a sail trip, and stay over night, so that give us opportunity to do some scuba diving.
Time
I think it was morning, but not sure anymore, I remember it was at 60 feet deep.
Lighting
Using two strobe, connect with optic fiber to my flash. It help to get the color back.
Equipment
A Nikon D7100, with a fisheye 10.6 mn, inside a sea&sea housing with 2 strobe
Inspiration
The monk seal are funny and curious, this one was turning around me to get my attention. I had few shot, but this one is the best.
Editing
No much, small cropping, few light adjustment.
In my camera bag
I use my fisheye must of the time when scuba diving.
Feedback
Let animal come to you never chase them !
