underwater photography - coloured filters
Came across two very interesting (and rather cheem) links regarding the use of warming filters underwater. Seems that 2 filters are recommended - a magenta plus a warming/orange??

Would appreciate insights and comments from all!

last part of the write out saying of FL-D & FL-B filters. This filters are mend for taking photos under fluorescent & incandescent lightings. The filters 'so-called cut off' the blueish under fluorescent & greenish under incandescent.
in this principle, you can apply in underwater condition. so you have to bring down three filters - red, FL-D & FL-B filters.
Red filter is actually orange in colour. FL-D filter for 20 ft and below. FL-B filter for 20 ft & above.
Maybe you can try adding red filter then follow by FL-D or FL-B depending on the depth you are at. However, maximium only 2 filters in front of the camera at one time.
