A fish decoy for my camera

I do wide angle macro photography underwater which helps me take great photos in yuck conditions. However it’s not so good for bigger fish who tend to not get that close. I tried 3D printing a little decoy for the end of my camera to see if it changed fish behaviour.

3D printed fish decoy that uses the laowa probe lens as an eye

I have only used it once but so far:

  • Bigeye (which the decoy design was based on, were not even a little interested).
  • Triplefins are not longer swimming under my lens (thats useful) but might be a bit more timid.
  • Red moki seem really curious, I’m sure they are doing a ‘double take’.

I’ll adjust my decoy a bit and do some more tests.
