Welcome to the Bonaire Digital Shootout 2005 daily webcast, by Eric Cheng
Did you know that neither Jason Bradley nor Berkley White like cilantro? That's too bad, because I love cilantro.
Dan remarked, "but if you wrap it up in a tortilla and call it a burrito, Berkley will probably eat it."
"So... I don't mean to be gross, but it tastes like vomit," Jason said, at the dinner table.

Man -- we have some good shooters here! We've all had a couple of days to get our camera gear dialed in, and the improvement in image quality from yesterday is dramatic.
In the morning, we split up into three dive boats and dove various reefs near the resort. Our group of divers were fortunate enough to encounter a cute, green frogfish, and a seahorse or two. And yesterday, Jim Watt found a bright yellow frogfish in about 8 feet of water right in front of the Chibi Chibi, Divi Flamingo's over-water restaurant.
Both Erik Moon and Jim jumped in at our house reef only to discover that our brooding jawfish had released all of her eggs! However, another one of the three looks to be pregnant, so we may have another set of eggs visible by the end of our shootout.
In the afternoon seminars, Berkley White gave an in-depth talk about exposure, followed by an inspiration talk by Jim Watt about composition. During the seminars, I sat at the printing station and cranked out over thirty prints, which we then plastered all over a wall. Tomorrow, I hope to get participants to print out their own images, but the days have been so packed with events that it's more likely that I'll be on print duty for the rest of the week. :)
