1 Hous­ing

The cam­era sits snug and dry in­side the soft, wa­ter­tight hous­ing. You com­pose, fo­cus and press the shut­ter through the clear ma­te­rial.

2 Flash­guns

Two flash­guns are placed in wa­ter­tight bags and clamped to stands. They are set to op­ti­cal slave, so that they are trig­gered by the Nikon’s pop-up flash.

3 Cam­era set­tings

We set man­ual mode, 1/200 sec, f/10 and ISO160, with the flashes in man­ual on full power. We jammed the pop-up flash open with a piece of foam.

4 Dif­fuser panel

Whether above or un­der wa­ter, light from a flash­gun is hard­edged. Fire the frontal light through the dif­fuser part of a five-in-one re­flec­tor to soften it.
