Pt. Lobos Cabazon Face

03 March 2014 - 04:28 PM

It has been far too long since I last visited Point Lobos State Reserve in Carmel CA. I had heard from other divers that the Cabazon males could be found guarding eggs this time of year but that this yearly event was nearly over. On Monday 2/24 condition were incredible with 50' visibility and very little surge. I lucked out and found this rather large Cabazon (Scorpaenichthys marmoratus) near the "Hole in the Wall" just outside Whalers Cove. This was shot at f10 @ 125th second, Manual mode housed DSLR, 100mm Macro Lens and two strobes 1/2 power and -4 power. Processing this image was very straight forward with minor adjustments to increase contrast, sharpen and very little backscatter removal, thanks to relatively clear water. I wish I had spent some time bracketing my depth of field to see a little more sharpness in the pectoral fins. Next time...

Mount GoPro to Macro Port

18 February 2014 - 11:43 AM

I'd like to mount my GoPro 3+ to the top of my macro port on my DSLR housing. The curved GP adhesive mount does not work. Has anyone successfully tried this with another type of mount? My housing handles do not have mounts on top for anything and my strobes are mounted to shoes on top of the housing. I would also like to have the GoPro as far forward as possible and centered so the front of the macro port sounded like a good location. 
Thanks, Keith
