Underwater lighting with OrcaLight
Under the water light loses intensity, working as an inmense blue filter that absorbs warmer colours as we descend. Besides, visibility is poorer than outside and therefore, lighting of close-ups is very important to bring out colours with all their intensity and to stress all life teeming in the ocean.
