Well, Vincent seeing as I am named Vincent as well I will tell you some things that helped me quite a bit this time.Cool! Very nice pictures!
Good watches too!
I always wonder how these wonderful underwater pictures were taken, because i have never gotten any good pictures while snorkeling using my underwater camera.
Aaaahh! Lighting, of course.Well, Vincent seeing as I am named Vincent as well I will tell you some things that helped me quite a bit this time.
I have been using a Canon G10 in a Canon WP series underwater housing for a few years now with some good results and many not so good. I mostly relied on taking massive amounts of pictures and hopefully getting a few good ones. And that worked OK in the past.
I have made diving, snorkeling and Snuba dives around the Caribbean, Australia's Great Barrier Reef and Hawaii and have some pretty good pictures from most of those locations.
This time I decided that I needed more light and brought along a diving light but on the Molokini dive I rented a video light from the photographer on the dive ship. My Housing does not have a connection for a strobe so I just left the video light on all the time when I was shooting. I ended up with much better results this time with probably 80% of the pictures being good. The photographer told me that the light costs about $700 which is as much as my camera and housing were together, but maybe it is worth it; so I am looking into it now.
Next summer is the Mediterranean Sea cruise from Spain to Istanbul.
