yet another Raja Ampat video ;-)

Recommended Posts

A video from Raja Ampat in December/January.

Mostly wide-angle (I really don't like using tripods in places like this, so with the macro lens on I tended to stick to stills)

 

Colour and light was often challenging, with some green water and lots of plankton/particles as you'll see, but of course thats one reason its such a wonderful place!

 

GH5, mostly using Panasonic 8-18mm, sometimes with 12-35, one shot with 8mm fisheye I think.

On board the Seven Seas, with a few shots taken during a very relaxing last week at the RA Biodiversity Resort.

 

Full version:

Short version:

PS - Keep an eye on the background in the manta sequence ;-)

One can never have enough Raja videos if they come as good as this! Very beautiful. Did you use Cinelike D or VLog color profile?

 

NB: That was a pretty solid shark getting cleaned in the background ;-)

Thanks.

No, it was all shot in standard profile (my V-Log key didn't arrive in time...) and this footage is all 8bit.

I tried hard to get white balance and exposure good in-camera.

 

That grey reef shark caught me by surprise! I wish I had ignored the manta for a while and concentrated on the shark, but at least I got it.

I was really pleased to see so many sharks in Raja actually, and the grey reefs were impressive. We also had a close encounter with a large hammerhead on one of the reefs (Melissa's Garden) , well my buddies did, I was too busy filming a stupid sweetlips or something and completely missed it!

Thank you for sharing, David.

I like your video, colors are balanced nicely and music selection is good as well.

Have you used video lights or a red filter? I do not see shadows anywhere.

Thanks.

No filters, I used Weefine Solar Flare 5000 lights (x2). Not quite Keldans, but they give a nice temperature and even spread.
