Thank you Jim,

Very much appreciated,

I cant believe how much fun it is using a DSLR than I ever thought it would be, I was scared to make the jump before, now I wish I had done it earlier.

Started using the AF- ON button when there isn't much current, I can see the advantages.

Here are some more, with the aim of underwater trying to fill the frame, reduce backscatter and this time adding a bit of bokeh

Interesting Steve, Thank you,

Well I read up on the button use and it does seem quite useful when your able to stay still around your subject, not much use in crazy currents though?

Today wasn't as successful as I had hoped, the currents were mad! Making staying steady hard and throwing a lot of sand into the water.

I am having a little trouble with backscatter in my shots, am I right in thinking pointing the strobes out more so the edge of the beams light the subject will help?

I think my main things to work on are filling the frame and strobe positioning right now.....
