Flash Hand Held Techniques

As discussed above, I believe that more damage is caused by fins inadvertently kicking the corals than by any other camera-related carelessness. As a result, I only advocate the use of hand-held flash techniques when there is no risk to being off-balance (as a result of hand holding) in an area where damage can occur. On sand or rubble in a wide open space is ideal for handheld flash but not when conducted on or close to the reef. The reason is that holding the housing in one hand and the flash in the other, you immediately have less control over your buoyancy. Versatile flash arms have been available for a number of years, and these can replicate most hand-held positions. With two hands on the housing, or using one hand and the two-finger technique, you'll be more aware of your stability.
