Landscape Photography: Shooting Caves

Wherever possible, place your flash underwater to emphasize the blue-green hues of cave water. Otherwise, water can absorb instead of reflecting light, making it look dark compared to the rest of the scene.

Wide angle lens, typically a maximum angle from 28mm to 38mm, give you more flexibility underground as shooting in caves depends on how far away you can stand from your subject. They also give you the ability to focus manually as most cameras won’t be able to autofocus in a dark cave.
