Campaign Chunk – Firefly Squid

Firefly Squid
Squid are cephalopods and are characterized by bilateral body symmetry, a prominent head, and a set of arms or tentacles. Some have been given the nickname inkfish by fishermen because of their ability to squirt ink. Many squid species have the ability to alter their colouration to blend in with their local environment.

The Firefly Squid is found in typical 600–1200 feet in the ocean areas they inhabit. Like other squids they can change their colouration, but with an added twist. The FS has a form of bioluminescence that produces a blue glow on its underside. It is believed this is to help protect it from predators that dwell below it, the glow helping it to mask itself against the sunlight that filters through from above.

Kirlian photography

According to sources, “Kirlian photography is a collection of photographic techniques used to capture the phenomenon of electrical coronal discharges.” In other words, it is a technique for creating contact print photographs using high voltage. Photographic film was placed on top of a conducting plate, and another conductor was attached to a hand, a leaf or other plant material. The conductors were energized by a high-frequency high-voltage power source, producing photographic images typically showing a silhouette of the object surrounded by an aura of light.

These pictures can be breathtaking beautiful, with electrical blues surrounding the subject of the picture on a stark black background.

Over the years, those in...
