Underwater lighting / filters

Recommended Posts

Hi, im shooting a documentary the next weekend and Im doing some scenes underwater (its about a triathlete)
I was wondering if using some kino flo lights (outside the pool, obviously) would help? the pool is outdoors but i bet it will be cloudy.
im gonna rent 2 o 3 kino flos anyway for that day so i wasnt sure if i needed them for the pool scene.
My second question is about the filters, do i need a red filter on camera or on the lights?
That day i would be using:
Canon 7d and 60d
tokina 11-16
canon 50mm 1.4
canon 24-70 4
GoPro hero 3 black edition
dicapac underwater case (other cases are way too expensive)
3x kino flo lights
i hope you can help me
sorry about my english if I said something wrong
