While cleaning up some images from a recent "Shearwater" shark dive, I noticed that pieces of chum would show up as red colored backscatter. The chum was definately not red. Using Inon 240Z strobes.

Any comments???

Your white balance is shifted to match your subject, so anything closer will appear more red because of proximity to light source. Moving this to lighting.
