Gyotaku is the traditional Japanese method of printing fish, a practice that dates back to the mid-1800s. This form of nature printing was used by fishermen to record their catches but has also become an art form of its own. I caught a Kahawai myself and decided to try out the art of Gyotaku. The result was quite good, so I photographed it and thought that it would be fun if the fish was chasing another fish.

How this image was created: A real fish was painted with black paint. A piece of Japanese rice paper was placed over the top and smoothed over. The result was photographed and placed on a toned background in photoshop.
