Have you tried compensating your WB while underwater so that you have less post to do later? Perhaps use one of those doohickeys that clip to the front of the lens and then shoot that and use it to WB. I have one and use it and can't think what it's called. :D

I'm very intrigued by this... Cool shots!

I think trying to shoot a grey-card underwater to manually set WB would be more hassle than it's worth. You want to keep the underwater stuff as simple and idiot-proof as possible because while the camera is in the enclosure it is very difficult to check results through the viewfinder or even the LCD screen. Setting WB in Lightroom later is no problem.

A much better time-saver might be to set up a Lightroom preset that sets WB, makes appropriate changes to the HSL settings, clarity, and tone curve to correct colour and contrast and bring out some detail in the bubbles. Or just manually do the first image in a sequence and then copy/paste the develop settings to all the others.

That second one is dopesauce. How is something like this lit? I read your post describing natural lighting, did you isolate and boost the little boy in post? Cause that just looks perfect!

These are so good I actually said a very rude word out loud when I saw them!

These are really cool. Especially love the look of the kid on the far right in the first one.

Was just in Hawaii and used a cheap disposable underwater camera, can't wait to get those back in a couple days. Nothing compared to these but my first underwater shots!
