“From birth, man carries the weight of gravity on his shoulders. He is bolted to earth. But man has only to sink beneath the surface and he is free.”
Jacques-Yves Cousteau

I'm shooting with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II in a UK-GERMANY housing. My most used lenses under water are the Canon 17-40mm wideangle and the 100mm Canon macro lense. The pictures are lighted with two Ikelite DS-125 strobes and positioned by ULCS strobe arms.
