Squid in the wild, at night, are a beautiful photographic subject. Their skin flickers and changes with colour constantly, I find it an irresistible subject. I have shot many squid portraits, but wanted to produce something different on this dive. My willing subject let me close in with a macro lens and shoot detail shots of its intricate beauty. I built up a portrait of its character with a series of abstract images.
