Great White cage diving Isla Guadalupe

Recommended Posts

Went to Isla Guadalupe for great white shark cage diving with Jimi Partington and Shark Diving Xperts and Islander Charters out of San Diego. It is an incredible trip - 2.5 days on location, 13+ hours in a cage on an air hookah system, lots of large (4-5+m) sharks, 100+ft vis, great food and camaraderie.

 

I'm an avid amateur wildlife photographer and this was the first time I took my Canon 5Diii underwater. I picked up a used Nauticam housing and prayed! All went well. I shot several hundred images with my 16-35 f2.8L ii. All were shot raw, manual exposure on the bait, ISO 400-800. 1/800s, and f6.3 +/-.

 

Slowly working through them in LR. This is my first time to post a photo here so hopefully is uploads correctly.

 

C&C/feedback welcome please. Thanks.

Thanks for the feedback. Exposure varies so much by monitor and is especially difficult to judge when going to print.

Absolutely, keeping your monitor calibrated is a big help. If you are using PS or I assume LR as well, I just go to the individual colors in curves and set each individually, it will usually open up the shadows and clear a lot of the color cast up as well! Like I said, great pic!
