As you know, the main problem for the owner of a fish is finding a plot. Going to just click them is a waste of time. Therefore, to begin with, I would advise you to get acquainted with the work of other photographers who successfully shoot with this glass.

Well, then - let's go! Search for interesting objects and stories and amaze your viewers!
