UW filming and underground

Hi, I'm new on this forum so I'll first present my self. I’m a UW filmmaker on the east coast of Sweden. I mainly produce documentary about nature or history (or both). I also film in caves, dry and wet. If you anyone on this forum also produces UW film in caves with a XL2 please let me know and maybe we can share ideas or tips.

My first question:
I am planning right now a film in a cave. That will be some filming in dry and wet (underwater) areas and the cave got dark walls. That is no ambient light… al light will be artificial, but I don’t won’t it to look lighted… Camera adjustments or light tips? Or anything else?
