I used to spend about an hour and one half on each dive, editing and workflow. So much time that it interrupted my diving and quit photography.
Yesterday I downloaded Vivid-Pix for Scuba. (www.vivid-pix.com). I was cautious about this but what the heck....If it shortened my workflow and give me the results I wanted, I'm on it!
Well fellow shooters, I spent a couple of hours on it today and was completely amazed.
Basically, one click after selection. Maybe a minor tweak but this software has a bad-ass algorithm that really works! Sadly it only works on .jpg and not RAW, but they will be having an upgrade that will work on .dng.
My .jpg files are 7-10 mb while the RAW files are 40-60 mb.
Like any software, it's not perfect, but this product exceeds its claims. I heartily recommend you download the trial.
There are some of my beginning pics. Please see before and after below.
For the last few years, I have seen the Lionfish infestation devastate the fish and ecological systems in the Caribbean.
They were trying to teach sharks and groupers to eat them in the Turks and Caicos. One great solution!
I'm probably expecting too much, but can anyone tell me if they have impacted the fish systems in the Cayman islands? I am so looking forward to a photo shoot there and hope to see the plethora of fish and healthy reef that I had enjoyed a few years back.
GREAT board folks! VERY well done and thanks to all in advance!
