Canon 430ex above surface behind model pointing down. Triggered with pocket wizards.

    wow that 430 puts out some nice power. I'm curious as to what housing you used as well. I like that the image is very sharp. How do you like the PWs? Have you tried them with a 580exII?

    Awesome !!!!

    I have an ewa-marine housing. This one specifically -> www.ewa-marine.com/index.php?id=424 Compared to most housings it's really cheap, and it works well for what I do. I wouldn't trust it while scuba diving or anything though.

    Paragon - it does! I think I was using it at about half power here. The flash really helped to get it sharp. I love pocket wizards in general but I didn't realize that they wouldn't sync through water, so I had to stay at the surface and have mine sticking out. I haven't used them with a 580exII but if I need another flash in the future I definitely might.

    Wow! That is some beautiful lighting!
    The shadows from the water surface add so much to this shot :)

    That housing isn't too expensive, but I think I would be far too scared to use it. I really like the pose in this one, either she is a great model or you spent some time showing her ideas above ground which must of looked really funny.
