Milne Bay - Papua New Guinea

09 December 2014 - 09:05 AM

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.









Emperor Shrimp

22 November 2014 - 09:14 AM

Hello Everyone,


Wanted to share my latest underwater short video.  I finally got some good footage of some emperor shrimp while I was in PNG.  They are known to be fast and elusive to the videographer.  So it was nice to have some cooperate.  


As always, comments and constructive criticism, are certainly welcome.

Canon 16-35 f4 L

25 October 2014 - 06:38 AM

I was wondering if anyone has used the new canon 16-35 f4 L lens yet? I am curious to see how much of an improvement it is over the 17-40mm. And if it's worth the upgrade. I know on land it is getting great reviews. But behind a dome is a different beast.

Particularly wondering if anyone has used it in a ikelite setup.

Everytime I use the 17-40mm I get upset at how bad the image is. And say I will never use it again...I like fish eyes, and the distortion doesn't bug me. But I am going to Truk in March and think the distortion and wrecks won't mix well.

Any help or advice would be appreciated.


Nudibranchs of PNG

22 October 2014 - 02:36 PM

Hello everyone,


I know nudibranchs are not everyone's cup of tea.  But they really are beautiful animals especially when viewed up close.  I tried to isolate them with lighting as much as possible to focus on the animal and the amazing colors and textures they have.  I hope you enjoy it.  


As always, comments and constructive criticism is always welcome.  Always trying to improve.


Thanks again,
