    Additionally: I used 1 strobe (YS120 I think) on this

  4. Imran Ahmad says:

    try 90 f22.. strobe aim slight behind it or 45deg from below, up towards subject.

    Thanks Imran, looking forward to having another trip going and do some test

    Good info on strobe aim. BTW, Imran, just a quick question, if the strobe is smaller, say YS-25DX Auto, should I still put the strobe on left side? Or it is better to have it on top front of the housing to illuminate the object? Thanks for the enlightment… :)

  7. Imran Ahmad says:

    Susanto, it all depends on how you would like to light up your subject. After all since it’s a smaller strobe, the angle of coverage and intensity is much lower, my guess is to go closer and also watch your aperture since it will vary,cos of its size . I favour the light just above the len, instead of on the left. Hope that helps

    Imran, thanks, will try that next time I dive…
