Let me start by telling you no animals were harmed during this shot. This goldfish had been my loyal companion for some time. When he died of natural causes I though to incorporate him into one of my art shots as a tribute.
This photo is actually an older work, still shot on slide film. It was also an experiment in using the flash a little different.
I had the slide professionally scanned and cleaned it up meticulously. This was necessary as the original was scratched and damaged. I also reworked the composition, trying to find a better balance between the glow and the negative space.
