Canon 1dx Mark II - Philippines

01 June 2016 - 06:18 PM

Hello all,

I was fortunate to get my hands on a 1dx mark II a few weeks ago, along with an underwater housing for it.  Did a last minute trip to the Philippines to test this out.

It is a short video, and I did a mix of macro and wide angle.  I used the 100mm F2.8L and some shots with a +10 diopter on it.  For Wide angle I used the 16-35mm F4L.  Make sure to choose 4k on the playback options.

 

Or Vimeo

 



I severely underestimated what the move to 4k was going to bring.  The amount of resources both from a speed and storage standpoint is massive.  After 40 dives, I came back with about 3.5TB worth of data.  Almost all of these shots were shot 4k and 60p, played back at 30p.

Let me know what you think!
Enjoy,

Dustin


Guadalupe - Liveaboard advice

28 March 2016 - 10:38 AM

Hello,

 

I am looking at booking a trip to Guadalupe in 2017.  

 

What boats do people recommend?  Pros and Cons of each?  Any outside the cage experiences?

 

Look forward to your replies.

Thanks,

Dustin


Macro Film from Bali, Lembeh, and PNG

10 March 2016 - 12:06 PM

Hello everyone,

 

I wanted to share my latest short film effort.  I don't know about the rest of you, but whenever I am macro diving, I always have to take step back and think about how crazy looking and acting the animals are down there.  To me, I think of Aliens!

 

Have a look at my new film 'Stay With Us'.  I am curious on feedback on the footage, concept, music, sound etc..

Let me know your thoughts.

 

I hope you enjoy it.

A different look at Octopuses

29 December 2015 - 03:15 PM

I wanted to share a short film I made recently. Back in October, I was lucky enough for it to be selected to be shown at the San Diego Undersea Film Expo.  It seems that most underwater films are very similar now days.  So I wanted to challenge myself to do something a little different.  

 

Earlier this year, a young artist, named Nick Carro approached me to ask my permission to draw an image from one of my films that had an octopus in it.  I was flattered, but had one condition...that was for him to show me the final piece.  Not only did produce an amazing piece of art, but he also filmed himself doing it.  He was kind enough to allow me to use some of his footage to make this film.

 

This is different.....and I am curious to know what people think of it.  It was a very difficult to edit, but I think it turned out pretty good.  Let me know what you think.

Enjoy!

Rolling in the Deep - Eastern Papua

30 November 2015 - 11:55 AM

Hello everyone.

 

Once again, I would like to share my latest episode in my 'Rolling in the Deep' series.  This time exploring the muck of Eastern Papua.  This is one of my favorite ones I have done.  One particulary cool shots is of a Peacock Mantis shrimp aerating its eggs.  Very cool behavior.

 

Let me know what you think!
