Hi.  I'm no expert but this looks like an ambient light shot to me ie. your strobe hasn't lit this much, if at all.  If you were shallowish on a bright day and had a high ISO, at f3.3 maybe the flash didn't light this image much at all? I would try cranking up your f-stop so your flash has to work harder against the ambient light.  The white balance looks off too and it should help the image if you correct this.


I'm sure others way more experienced than myself will know exactly what is going on but hope this helps in the meantime.

Indeed it does.  Great to see some footage from this part of the world.  Well done and thanks for sharing.

Thanks for a year of great  photos and helpful information everyone. A busy year for me and I managed just 12 dives.  Here is my favourite from Santa Barbara Island, California:

And a sneaky second one taken on the same day.  My first time for sealions and I really struggled but it was just such fun.

Hi.  Yes they are for sale but as noted above they are now located in New Zealand.


Strobe #1 plus fibre optic adaptors/cables etc are listed at the following website:




I have ordered a diffuser for the second strobe and it is not yet listed, so I can sell it directly.





In Topic: Post processing every time?

Kevin, I noticed your comment that you crop a lot. I'm just learning but I recently got a viewfinder for my housing and I've noticed a huge reduction in the amount of cropping I do now.

On other post processing I'm often doing heaps just to salvage a photo!
