Underwater Critters with the 5d - Bali
« on: December 05, 2016, 10:00:06 AM »
Hi Everyone,

Wanted to share with you some underwater footage of some really tiny critters that we found in Bali.  This is part of my 'Rolling in the Deep' series.  It is episode #10.

Let me know what you think!
Enjoy!

amazing footage!

How do get so close to them while filming?
When I did some underwater filming on the Maldives (just with a watertight pocket camera), the already fleed while I was still some meters away.
What lens were you using?

Beautiful video and nicely matched music.  Very well done.

I dove for many years and had a reef system for 29 years, your video brought me back to those enjoyable days.

Fantastic! I did one dive off Bali - a shipwreck, but I can't recall the name. The recurrence of asthma, a scarred cornea and the arrival of children killed my scuba diving career, but great to watch such skilled video work by other divers.

You have to love YouTube. The videos my kids watch of adults prancing around in superhero costumes get millions of views per month. This excellent video now has 187.

Thanks for watching it.  I used a 100mm macro lens, and the 16-35mm f4L.  Getting critters to stay still is always a game of patience.  With every great shot, is 6-7 bad ones.  When you get one that cooperates, it is a win.  This trip I did about 38 dives, and at an hour a piece on average.  So there is alot of time spent underwater.
