Getting the perfect macro shot of small fish or critters is difficult.  We’ve all seen the stunning images of pygmy seahorses or small gobies online or in dive magazines, but every time you try to do the same you end up with a blurred image with lots of backscatter, and the fish is looking away.

How do you get to the point where you’re able to capture the details, the expression and the curiosity of the fish? There’s some fantastic advice here from Christian Skauge, award winning photographer on how to get that perfect shot.
