I used to use two strobes in the past but prefer the simplicity of a single strobe. A more honest interpretation is that it takes more skill, thinking and "aesthetic awareness" and I simply don't dive enough to master all of that. It may be different for WA where just have a wider beam angle itself is helpful. If you are on your first UW photography trip I think you will find there are too many things to experiment with already. No need to get all the gadgets all at once. Another tip, if you can find a place with a house reef where you, with or without buddy, can dive without dive guide you can much more easily experiment with camera setting, strobes etc.
