About the Shot Lying on my belly at the stern of the boat, I dipped half of my camera into the water, and this magnificent great hammerhead came up toward the surface. To get the shot, I used a Nikon D90 in an Aquatica housing set at f/10, 1/160 sec and ISO 100, a Tokina 10-17mm fisheye lens, and two Sea&Sea YS-110a strobes. I exposed for the sunset, and placed one strobe under the water and the other above to illuminate the shark’s dorsal fin.
