OK, now the sunken hot tub in the spa has been repaired (See Studio Platform, this Forum) and I'm getting ready for a shoot. I'll be using my flock of wireless SB-800s in Westcott softboxes and a snoot, so I don't have to worry about tripping over any wires, and I'm using a 70-200 zoom since, shooting through a couple of open doors, I can get up to 30 ft away from the model. There is a circular window in one wall and a glass door which would allow ambient daylight - should I try to block that daylight out or accomodate it with a high shutter speed? Does anyone have any advice, suggestions, or examples as I plan for the shoot?

Thanks in advance,
Doc

Personally I always try to use the ambient light in a shot, unless it's too harsh and can't be diffused ... or, if I'm going for a soft, candle lit look. Sometimes a nice beam of ambient light can turn an ordinary pictures into a more artistic image. I like the idea of using your "flock of wireless SB-800s" ... that's pretty much how I started ... AND, they're safer than powered strobes around hot tubs! Love to see some of your images when they're ready.

Correction. Drop one of those in the tub and the girl dies! Be very careful.

Anyone ever use a battery powered waterproof light in an indoor swimming pool?

In my scuba diving days I learned that ordinary "waterproof" flashlihgts generally were not. However, for only six feet down rather than sixty they might be functional.
I have no idea how they would do for photography or if any have enough power. Just a curios thought that popped into my mind.
