My portfolio

by Martha Tressler


I never tire of watching anemonefish - if nothing else exciting is happening on a dive I'm always quite happy to find a nice anemone and "have a chat" with it's inhabitants. These images are all from my film days, most taken with a Nikon F90x in a Subal housing but one dating back to my original Nikonos V.
Pink anemonefish by Martha Tressler 1. Pink anemonefish, Kunkungan Bay Resort House Reef , Lembeh Strait, Indonesia 2004. F90x with 105mm lens and Ringflash (courtesy of Anthony Holley!).
False Clown anemonefish by Martha Tressler 2. False Clown anemonefish, also KBR House Reef in 2004, 105mm lens and Ringflash. Not sure what the fish was up to but it kept charging me with an open mouth.
Pink anemonefish by Martha Tressler 3. Pink anemonefish, but this picture was more about the deep purple anemone. This was taken in Sipidan in 1997 with a Nikonos V with an Ocean Optics close-up lens and a Sea and Sea YS50 strobe. I blame Martin Edge for this one - he watched me try to take the shot from all the wrong angles, and when I failed to understand his gestures he took the camera out of my hands, moved it around to where he thought it should be, and only then gave it back to me!
Spinecheek anemonefish by Martha Tressler 4. Spinecheek anemonefish, again KBR House Reef in 2004, F90x with a 60mm lens and twin YS50 strobes.
False Clown anemonefish by Martha Tressler 5. False Clown anemonefish, Mantanani, Borneo, Malaysia 2002, F90x with 105mm lens and YS50 strobe. This trip was primarily a nudibranch hunting adventure, but we managed to find a few other subjects. In addition to these anemonefish I saw more different species of butterflyfish here than I have at any other single destination.
