Thanks, was a 7d + tokina 10-17 fisheye in an ikelite housing with dual DS160 strobes.

First time taking the 7d underwater :)
There will be many more times though!

Same setup as mine, feels pretty heavy when you get out doesn't it :-)

Great pictures !

It most definitely does - It's nice to have the luxury of being able to hand it to people on a boat... but even then lifting it out of the water to hand it to them in chop is a bit of a struggle.

Thanks, yeah if you dive and are in Australia then I thoroughly recommend this spot.
Grey Nurse Sharks everywhere and lots and lots of other fish/life
We had bad weather so only got 2 dive days in, but I will definitely go back there.

Great photos! Those white eyes on the sharks look mean and ominous.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Fantastic work there! Impressive. I'm not sure I'd have the courage to be underwater with those sharks.


Currently just a P&S, but watch this space.

Thanks. Grey Nurse Sharks look pretty scary but they are very placid.

Thanks. It's actually amazing how comfortable you can be in the water with them. I have dived with quite a few sharks and absolutely love being in the water with (most of) them.
They are a lot less scary once you watch them for a while and see how graceful they are (and that they are generally not interested in you :))

Thanks. Was using manual camera settings with strobes on TTL and adjusting them with flash EV compensation + directionally (I would prefer to use manual strobe settings I think but it is very difficult because my strobes are on arms ~70cm long and it is a pain to get to them to change settings).

1. f6.3 1/125s ISO 100
2,3,4 & 5. f5.6 1/125s ISO 100

This was my first outing with this setup so just getting used to it... I think best idea is to meter for the water and adjust the aperture/shutter speed/ISO in order to get the blue colour you want. Then use strobes to light foreground/subject
