Underwater Macro Photography gives you the perfect chance to get up close and personal with your subjects.
Macro Photography is less dependent on dive conditions than other types of underwater photography and can be a great choice if conditions are less than perfect. This will keep your personal Macro Gallery unaffected.
Bad visibility rarely effects close up photos and lack of light is not a problem as your flash or strobe will provide plenty of light on a subject that’s positioned close to the camera’s lens.
