I finally got a chance to break in my first underwater housing. All these are my first attempt at shooting underwater. Equipment is an Oly C4040 in an Ikelite housing with nothing else. Onboard flash only. I haven't touched up any of the photos yet either, I only reduced the res and re-saved them so I could post them (and you could see them) easily.

Thanks to all here for helping me get started!

First:

I put a few images up at pbase.

I did edit the 2 pics of clownfish. I brightened them both up and did some major backscatter cleanup on one of them. (now I really want a strobe too!) The rest of the photos are as-is.

Enjoy!

Not too bad. But get that strobe and learn to get closer to your subject. In the short time I've had a digital camera I've learned that with the instant feedback you can learn more about UW photography in a few months than I learned in years of film UW photography.

You cannot load your picture into this forum.

Your picture needs to be posted onto some website already, for example in Rodale personal profile Galleries.

In this site, you can reference your picture from the website where your actual picture is kept by typing this:

You will have to fill in the website and page address in the ...

I made the same mistake when I first posted my frogfish photo.

Hi Todd,
the photos are not bad. I don't know how often you are planing to take photos under water. If this happens only a few times a year there is no real need to get an external strobe. For getting nice un-bluish results you have to get closer to the object, best same level and use the internal flashlight of your Oly C3030.
But if those photos are the start of an professional underwater-photographer career, you definitively have to get not only one strobe.
