    Nice pics. What underwater enclosure do you use? How about lighting? I think underwater photography would be fun, but I don't have the $$$ for it. Even with a top of the line enclosure, I'd be so scared of a leak.

    In for details of your underwater kit, and how secure you feel with it...

    3 and 4 are fantastic, btw...

    for costing several thousand dollars, im sure they feel really secure...i'm just curious how hard it is to shoot with them. seems like controls would be weird.

    im using the ewa Marine..its a soft housing, it makes me nervous sometimes but I make sure to check and recheck every single time..so far its worked quite well..but its HARD AS HELL to take pictures with it, which I could afford a real housing

    and yes, the third one is my favorite too.. :)

    Basically do that, only with your flashes. Then anchor them with string and lead sink weights. Make string the right height that you want and call it a day. I used ebay triggers.... got some awesome shots, but my stupid external Maxtor took a shit with them. I'm still trying to get those (and about 1400 other pics) back.
