Rebecca and Marco Gutierrez, of Gutierrez Photography in Alaska, put together this tutorial for using flash, lighting, strobes, trigger, and tethering underwater. The video help professionals incorporate different lighting options for underwater photography, differentiate their work, and create memorable, unique photographs.
The photo equipment used includes Canon cameras, the Outex underwater housing system, and Elinchrom strobes for lighting. For the purposes of this Blog we are being specific with the equipment used, but virtually any camera could have been used (film, DSLR, Mirrorless, and/or some medium format), and the same can be said for the lighting and cabling system.

- Canon 16-35mm f/2.8
- Canon 24-70mm f/2.8
- Universal Pro Cover T1 (Regular size, 1 opening for tripod/tethering port)
