    Tips welcome..
    The other day, I saw some Aussie inventor being interviewd about some lens he had designed (not being an Optics Graduate, he didn't realize it COULDN'T be done, so he upset everyone by doing it, and it works so well that some big name firm stole his idea).

    This lens, which has enormous DOF and is in the shape of a periscope several feet long, can be attached to a movie (or still) camera and take underwater shots with the camera above the surface.

    Sounds like just the thing for you?

    If not already mentioned, you might float an empty aquarium over the subject. Shoot through the bottom of the aquarium where you and your camera are high and dry. I suppose you can use your flash or other lighting as desired, pointed directly at the subject through the bottom glass. My first thought was a glass bottom bucket, but that would be cramped.
