A little selection of macro goodness from a recent trip to Bali.
Huge thanks to the entire team at The Underwater Tribe for taking me diving :)
 
For anyone interested, this is the equipment list and settings etc -
 
Shot on Red Scarlet W, 5K @ 40fps on a 25fps base timeline.
Gates Pro Action Housing and Gates GT-14 Video Lights were used.
The Nikon 70-180mm macro lens was also used and turned out to be a very versatile lens.
The R3D's were edited and graded in Resolve 14.1 and a couple of clips were post stabilised.
There wasn't a great deal of grading needed as the H20 OLPF works nicely, especially when white balanced off a white slate.
 
Hope you enjoy.

Nice, at 0:43 there is some text in the lower left corner which first I thought is a lens reflection. But it seems to be some plastic in front of the frog. Could be easily edited out using a tracked window in Resolve :)

Nice! How are you able to pan so smoothly? Which tripod do you use?

Certainly could be Bub but I didn't see a need to do that.
The amount of rubbish was quite astonishing.

No tripod used Pyroracer. All handheld.

Having a housing that is able to be trimmed up for neutral buoyancy makes a huge difference. One of the many benefits of using a dedicated video system is the ability to trim the housing perfectly. Plenty of practice helps too mate.
