Bali Macro on red Scarlet W

23 November 2017 - 02:47 PM

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.



Grading Red Scarlet W Footage

09 September 2017 - 04:42 PM

Despite almost zero information within the Red colour channel, the R3D files from the Scarlet W still grade up nicely.
Took about 12 nodes to get to this point but considering the starting point of this clip, it turned out reasonably well, especially given the conditions.
Conditions were tough with maybe 5 metres vis, surgy and lots of floating particles. This shot was about 18 metres deep.
Scarlet W, 5k 50fps, Nikon 16-35mm and 8 inch dome on the Gates Pro Action Housing.
Graded in Davinci Resolve 14.



Pigmy Pipehorses of Bare Island

27 January 2017 - 12:57 AM

Sydney has some very diverse marine life for a major tourist hub and Botany Bay, being on the door step of Sydney's international Airport is a surprisingly healthy environment.
​Some of the more cryptic species living in Botany Bay ate the Pigmy Pipehorses.

These little critters are so well camouflaged that they are sometimes impossible to see even when looking directly at them.


I put a little video together of a recent dive I did to film the Pigmy Pipehorses, hope you enjoy it.
