New Macro Photography: Seafood / by Neal Auch

My artistic output has been a bit scarce over the last month or so as my spouse and I have been adjusting to life with our newborn daughter.  We've finally started to get some semblance of a routine established and last week I managed to find an afternoon to get into the studio and work on some new macro photography.  I've put off shooting seafood for a long time now, mostly because slimy things are extremely tricky to light.  For this first experiment I limited myself to two subjects: an octopus and a soft-shelled blue crab.  I've added my favourite images from the session to my Inside gallery.  Enjoy!
