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)
One of the best things about diving is meeting new friends... especially when they come swimming up to you to tell you they have found something you might find cool.... I love the diving community xx
