While swimming out for a shore dive at sunset  I asked my friend to pose for me.  I balanced one strobe on top of my head to give her face fill light  and placed the other strobe under the water to illuminate her tank and octo.

How'd you get this? ... did you balance on one hand and shoot with the other?

message Thanks Suzan, It was actually very easy. I just steadied the camera with both hands directly over the Christmas Tree Worm, composed, and fired off like 5 or 6 shots until I was happy with the lighting etc. The Christmas tree worm was near the seafloor on a coral mound so I just kneeled on the coral rubble in front of it. I think the VR version of the Nikkor 105 helps to compose for these types of photos.
