With only this set-up. How likely is it to get decent shots underground?

i got decent shots with an el cheapo camera as long as it has a manual feature you should be fine. forget about the flash underground its practically worthless unless your shooting something less than 10 feet away.

Are you setting up for an under exposure with a manual meter. I would think the amount of dark would skew it.

Or do you expose for the lighted subject and let the background go black?

The bright side is with digital you can preview without waiting a week for the film to return.

Of course this is all hypothetical.
:wink: :wink:

To get the best underground shots, you generally need to use a tripod with external lighting. So long that your camera supports long shutter speed, you should be able to take some decent shots. Although with underground photography, the more sensitive light sensor in the camera, the better. Cameras that aren't as sensitive will be more difficult to get a better shot with. However, the biggest secret is technique. Setting up the right shot and lighting it correctly.
