Fantasy-Like Framing

This underwater couple is the perfect example of the photographic technique known as “framing” at its finest.

Catch A Cool Wave

Before, only surfers would get this incredible view of the inside of a wave. Now, thanks to a dedicated photographer, you can get a glimpse, too. Matt Burgess, the photographer, had the patience to wait for the wave to overlap and create a wall of water while still maintaining the clear eye of the wave in the middle of the shot.

Open Wide

To anyone else, the subject of this photo would be a regular striped mackerel. To a seasoned photographer or fisherman, the mackerel is so much more. The fish’s gill rakers help it catch zooplankton, and they also provide for an especially striking image. Who knew gill rakers could be so visually intriguing.
