Bob Broton has been shooting still underwater photos for over 25 years. He has been diving and photographing extensively in the Great Lakes, East Coast, Hawaii, the Caribbean, Great Britain, Australia and now Micronesia. Shipwrecks are a passion. He prefers very wide angle equipment to maximize the image and clarity, while minimizing the camera to subject distance. This technique requires a ultra wide angle lens (~20mm) and a very high power wide coverage strobe (>100 degrees). Holding the camera in one hand and the strobe in the other at an angle to the subject minimizes backscatter from particulate in the water. Superb ambient light shots require remaining very still for long exposures. Flash is done in Manual mode at F11 to F8 aperture for 1/30 to 1/40 sec! ond and for ambient light conditions, the same F stops with automatic aperture priority exposures over 1 second.
