Great photos! Those white eyes on the sharks look mean and ominous.
Thanks. Grey Nurse Sharks look pretty scary but they are very placid.

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

excellent shots! what are the settings on your camera please?
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
