TTL Flash

I've seen many excellent and consistent TTL flash illuminated images, both close-up and wide angle, to be convinced that TTL is an efficient, effective and a very practical way of lighting all forms of underwater photographs.

Tips

• Given the narrow angle of lenses used, one or two small guns are ideal for the job.

• I advocate the use of short articulated flash arms like those manufactured by Ultra light and Inon.

• A general concept of close-up flash positions is to try and simulate the light from the sky, clouds and the sun, in the same way that we are used to seeing shadows in our everyday lives.

• A good exercise is to hunt for books, magazines or pictures on the Internet to view examples of close-ups and macro. By examining the shadows, you can often determine the position of the flashgun.

• If you're intent in placing your flashgun in front of your port, between the lens and the subject, then ensure the flash is well away from the picture frame and does not scare the subject away. Don't get into the habit of doing this as a matter of course.
