Underwater Pictures

Here is my first attempt at taking underwater photos. I rented a camera from the dive shop, which also included a strobe light. The camera I used was a Sea & Sea DX3100.

I took over 500Mb of pictures, but not all of them turned out as desired. It was difficult determining what settings to use (i.e. light level, filter, etc.) so only about 20% came out.

Some of the descriptions may be incorrect, so if you find anything I have mislabeled, please feel free to email me the corrections.
