Dear Coral Listers, 

There have been several papers published during the last few years on how to create 3D models of coral colonies and coral reefs using off-the-shelf cameras and software.

Here are a few links of the papers I found the most useful:

Quantifying Multiscale Habitat Structural Complexity: A Cost-Effective Framework for Underwater 3D Modelling
http://www.mdpi.com/2072-4292/8/2/113/html <http://www.mdpi.com/2072-4292/8/2/113/html>

Quantifying the response of structural complexity and community composition to environmental change in marine communities
http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/gcb.13197/abstract <http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/gcb.13197/abstract>

Accuracy and Precision of Habitat Structural Complexity Metrics Derived from Underwater Photogrammetry

End of the chain? Rugosity and fine-scale bathymetry from existing underwater digital imagery using structure-from-motion (SfM) technology
