Eye-Popping Perspective

One thing I've found the Totomega lens to be really useful for is making fish look almost manga-esque.

Take porcupine pufferfishes (Cyclichthys orbicularis) for instance. Oversized eyes, perpetually puckered lips, prickly unstreamedlined body…what's not to love?

The Totomega lens made this big-eye perspective possible.

With the combination of my Totomega lens and the red-light function of a SOLA 600 light, I was able to get really close to one particular pufferfish during a night dive at the Air Manis jetty in Ambon and capture a series of pretty porcupine pufferfish portraits.

This sort of begs the caption: "I've got my eye on you"
