Thank you!
I was inspired by uw stills, where the strobe were put behind the object to get the silhouette. The Sea Pen was perfect for this. Ill keep trying.
I like the black background in photography too. Alaska was great to experiment whith that and often very easy because of the prevailing twilight underwater.

No tripod no Mercalli.
The surroundings i put my housing are rocks, sandy bottom,... So i avoid damages to the enviroment.
I dont go for critters sitting in corals or on other fragile uw stuff.
