Thanks guys! Glad you enjoyed it! :) 


In Topic: Bali or Similan Islands?

Yep, the bleaching did kill of quite a bit of corals in the Similans.

 

I would go Bali, and I agree with Mikes advice, find an operator who will take you out to places like Gili Selang (Amed) and you will have great soft and hard corals!

 

Have a look in my previous thread, there is a little 5min video of diving in Bali! :)

Haha, thanks Mike, its nice to have someone understand your headaches! :)

 

I must say that there has been a lot of crappy shots that I had to delete to get this video together! :)

Especially hard was working with the 100mm since I had to shoot with the aperture wide open to get enough light, which resulted in some pretty darned small DOF :) 

 

I am not using a filter, I do MWB, normally off the sand or another neutral part of the reef and then I use a custom picture style that trial and error has shown works good. 

It should also be said that I only go out to shoot WA on days where I know that the conditions will be great and I try to plan those days for shallow reefs ;)

Hi Steve, thanks a lot, I am really glad you enjoyed it! :)

 

Mike, I am using a 7D, 10-17mm, 60mm and 100mm, the WA is ambient light only and  the macro is lit with just the focus lights from my INONs (which is a huge headache to shoot with by the way!) :P

Hey buddy!

 

I'm in! Bring on the blue wales! :) I know that scubazoo did some footage of them out there so I guess its possible.

 

However I don't know if you need a shooting permit. When are you thinking about going?
