This were the first pictures I've taken during my Canon G11 maiden dive last month at Robb's Jetty in Perth using Canon OEM housing. Pictures are taken with just the camera's built in flash as I have yet to own a strobe. I'm working on it though! C & C welcome!

Image all taken at the following setting:
ISO : 80
Aperture : F4.0
Shutter : 1/250s


Cheers!

Ronald

Looking nice... you're getting good color.

Try getting a little closer, read the Underwater composition chapters to get some more ideas on composition, since right now you are just pointing and shooting :)

I startet out with a canon g10 once.
The advise I have for you with a canon g11, always go very close to the subject you want to take a picture of. Then the results will be good.

Adding a strobe "off camera" can also give some depth to your images and may help get rid of some of the snow.
You are building a nice set up, keep at it.

Thanks for your comments. Yes definitely have to work more on composition. I'm trying to get as close as I can, before the subject flee, that is! :lol:
Also I'm attaching a picture of the dive condition that morning, just so you can get an indication of the visibility we are shooting our pictures under.
