In 2009, underwater photographer and (at the time) Nauticam USA Sales Manager Chris Parsons planted an idea in my head. It was the concept of using filters with artificial lighting when shooting photos underwater. Up until then, I had always thought that tinted filters on your camera in conjunction with strobes were a big no-no. My own personal experience had shown, that with a filter applied to your camera, any artificial light would appear very red, and ruin your image.
Chris patiently explained to me that instead of a singular filter on your lens, a set of them – a red filter for the camera lens, and a blue filter for your strobe lights – would complement each other, and the results could be spectacular.
