Smaller subjects typically 1 to 3 inches (2.5 to 7.5cm) shot on macro settings or with macro equipment that are in MID WATER not touching anything (i.e. between 1:1 and 1:3)
I was diving on Buddy'S Reef in Bonaire shooting with my Canon 5D MK II and Canon 1:28L IS ISM 100mm macro lens. This tiny Trunkfish was swimming around me, lips puckered as if ready to give me a kiss.
