Photography of reef

K guys so as I'm sure most you are aware it's hard to capture the full color of your corals in a picture, especially with a phone camera. Well I kinda stumbled onto something that helps and doesn't require adjusting contrast and junk. SUNGLASSES, that's right we all have them and now you can use them to take pics of your reef. Just put one of the sunglass lenses infront of your camera and have your actinics on. It worked great for me and I'll add some examples as proof. My radioactive dragon eyes under daylights then actinics with an Oakley lens. I can't even get a pic under actinics without the sunglasses.
