EXUMA ISLANDS, BAHAMAS, 2008

 

I had been looking to get a great shot of a Nassau Grouper and experiment with my camera on a trip to the Exumas.  I was looking to learn how to use my white balance underwater to capture images without a strobe light.  You take a white slate underwater and position it where you can set a custom white balance on the camera by telling the camera what white is at depth.  Once the camera knows what white is, it will then be able to approximate what the other colors are.  The trick to this is that once you set the white balance you will need to stay at the same depth or just a bit shallower.  If you change depth by more than 7 to 10 feet you will need to reset the white balance at that depth to get true colors.

 

On one dive that trip, I spotted a Nassau Grouper that looked like it wanted it’s picture taken.  I was mistaken and as I approached it slide underneath a rock to hide, but as you can see I was able to capture this image of this shy piscine.
