Backscatter

07 June 2012 - 10:01 AM

Hi,

I have a problem with backscatter between my camera and my target. I have the strobes set up wide to reduce backscatter, but for my wider-angle shots (e.g., wrecks), I have a ton of backscatter still. I generally shoot ISO100, around F6.3, and around 1/200

I have an S95 with Ikelite housing as well as two YS-01 strobes.

For the Ikelite housing, would you recommend black tape on the inside and over the front of the fiber-optic sensor? Could light getting through the front be the cause of backscatter? Do you have any example of taping done with this type of Ikelite housing?

Thanks!
