This portrait series of Siamese Fighting Fish shot in clear water are lit to perfection to capture them as if they were in mid-air. The images shot by photographer Visarute Angkatavanich depict the subjects as elegant fighter fish in vibrant colors. The clear water is portrayed as the black background in which the fighter fish stand out in high quality images.
The stunning view of their bodies creates sudden movement within the image as their fins spread out flawlessly. Siamese Fighter fish tend to look gracious but are actually quite aggressive. Visarute captures their perfect essence through a high resolution lens with the intention of them floating effortlessly. This collection of quality portraits would be an excellent showcase of how fighter fish can be depicted as majestic creatures.
These Siamese Fighting Fish Portraits are Truly Works of Art
