You've been getting green or blue pictures underwater and the only solution you've been getting is: GET A STROBE or use an editing software to correct the colors.

My collection of pictures are all taken on simple compact cameras with NO FLASH or STROBES used with no "spot editing" done.

Simple and clean shots that anyone can take (without having to spend additional money on bulky equipment that you will need to carry around or dive with - while blinding fish). You just need to know a few simple steps to set on your camera get the REAL colors back into your photos...

The reason why I've gone on to shoot over 50,000 pictures using natural light is because "what I see with MY eyes, is what the camera captures and not the artificial colors and effects a strobe adds in...".

Imagine taking a candle light dinner with a flash and without one...which one captures the true mood of the night?

All you need is your standard camera, standard housing and 2 dives to be able to take pictures like I've posted on this page.

I also made a video of this frogfish after I posted it online, I received an email from Germany (June 2010):
