Lobsters everywhere

Spent today photographing robotic lobsters in Nahant, Mass., with Dr. Joe Ayers, Associate Professor of Biology at Northeastern University. Joe is the inventor of these Biomimetic Underwater Robots, known as Robo Lobsters RoboLobsters. These things are really cool and have been featured in all kinds of press. Basically they take advantage of capabilities proven in animals for dealing with real-world environments. Tried different lighting situations indoors with three SB-800's, including using some blue gels, but liked this image best as an overall shot. Robo Lobster is being featured at the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum in New York City next year and the photos I shot today are for the catalog that will accompany the exhibit. Off to San Diego tomorrow to cover flight operations on Sea Fighter. Will post from there.
