Betty Bomber - Truk

14 April 2015 - 08:25 AM

Hello everyone,


I wanted to share a short video of the famous "Betty Bomber" plane wreck in Truk.  It is a fun and photogenic wreck in Truk that is not to be missed.  This was shot with the new 16-35mm F4L canon lens on the full frame 5d.  It also used an 8" dome.  I found the sharpness excellent in comparison to the 17-40mm.


Let me know what you think.

Hello everyone,


Wanted to share my latest effort.  It is called Black and White.  It was filmed in Socorro.  This is more of an educational and conservation artistic piece.  Let me know what you think.

What are the most photogenic wrecks in Truk?

13 February 2015 - 06:19 AM

Hello everyone,

For those who have been to Truk before, what are the most photogenic wrecks there? Ones that we can't miss?

We are headed there in a month on the siren boat, so I would like to start planning.


Milne Bay - Papua New Guinea

Hello everyone,


I wanted to share my latest episode in the 'Rolling in the Deep' series.  This time taking a look at the critters in Milne Bay.  PNG is a terrific destination, and Milne Bay is an area where it can offer both fantastic macro and wide angle photography.


As always comments are welcome.  Let me know what you liked and didn't.





Issue with Titles reducing resolution in cs6 premiere

26 November 2014 - 04:59 PM

Hello everyone,


I am getting pretty frustrated with a couple of projects that I have been working on, and I think they both have the same issue....although slightly different.


What is happening is when I add a title to my timeline the resulting exported video's resolution is greatly reduced.  Delete the title and export and it works fine.  So I know it has something to do with the title and the sequence.


Here are the 2 examples that I having problems with

-  'Still Title' with a 'Zoom' effect applied to it.  The zoom is going during the entire title.  Essentially it is some wording that is zooming towards the viewer.

-  'crawling title' that moves from left to right.  Similar to the new ticker that is shown at the bottom of the screen on a news broadcast.


The similarities is that it is a title that is moving in some way.


Again, if these titles are taken out, the video is fine on the export.  Put them back in and the file size is massively reduced and the resolution is down considerably.  Very blocky and pixelated.


I am using Premiere CS6 with a 30 fps sequence and 30 fps video from my dslr.


This has been very frustrating, and any guidance would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance.
