Getting camera ready

Since I haven't been using the camera for a while, I'm not expecting stunning pictures for a couple of days. Especially since I upgraded from a single strobe to a dual strobe system, therefore modifying (and complicating) the solution. I now have a more flexible and powerful lighting system but at the same time, strobe positioning is more challenging and as these new strobes output much more power than the last one (and that it's a manual and not a TTL system) I have to get used to it and go through various range of settings.

Dives have been a bit chaotic today (swimming miles) which did not help to take pictures. Moreover I'm extremely tired from the trip and lack of sleep for the last 3 days, I'm literally falling asleep during surface intervals.
