    Gary Parr of Reef Threads has recently shared an extremely simple, but effective tip to help capture corals with maximum polyp extension. It’s particularly helpful when shooting azoox corals–Photograph them in the dark. With a flash of course.

    Wanting to get a photo of his Balanophyllia colony in all its glory, Gary set up his camera, focused on the coral with a flash ready to go. The next morning with the lights still off and camera set, he was able to photograph the coral in a beautifully expanded state.

    In a similar fashion, the C. californica polyps above were photographed in the dark using a flash. Check out Gary’s (much better) results on Reef Threads.
