All pictures are taken with the XZ-1 in a Olympus PT-050 housing with a single Sea & Sea Ys-110a strobe. The pictures are taken in RAW and post processed in Adobe Camera Raw, where Iíve adjusted the white balance and shadow/highlights, and added some clarity/saturation and sharpness.
Comments and tips on how to improve my pictures a very welcome
I am thinking about getting this setup, I already have a ys 110a . How do they behave together? Any problems? I'm not too worried with the lack of TTL in manual mode. Is it easy to change shutter speed and aperture in manual on the housing, are there dedicated buttons/dials for these? Which wide angle lens did you go for and did it give any vignetting? Sorry for all the questions
I would have been tempted to make the shot tighter on the butterfly, it would have made a greater contrast with the soft coral and I don't think you gain much
