Good composition is always important, especially if you have enough time to frame a subject like this coral reef rock. Try to take a few minutes and swim around the subject, while holding your camera towards it and checking the camera display’s live view. Shoot a few images from each direction and later choose the best one after you’ve downloaded the images. And next time, you’ll know which perspective worked best.
Equipment: SeaLife Micro 3.0, Sea Dragon 3000F

The light offers an impressive 90 CRI (color rendering index) with a proprietary COB LED array that replicates natural sunlight (A CRI of 100 would be just like natural sunlight).
