Smaller subjects typically 1 to 3 inches (2.5 to 7.5cm) shot on macro settings or with macro equipment that are NOT MOVING usually on the bottom (i.e. between 1:1 and 1:3)
I challenge myself to get a shot of these little guys with the mouth open (showing teeth) and with the reflection of the strobes in the eye. This is an uncropped image, with minimal editing.

I found this tiny banded coral shrimp on the Oro Verde shipwreck. To photograph it, I framed it within the piece of twisted metal hull where it was hiding. Shot with f/3.5 to focus on the body and blur the antennae.
