Dhara Muli - Manta Cleaning Station
We spent two weeks in Baa Atoll, Maldives on the MV Manthiri attempting to reprise my footage of the Manta Ray Aggregation of 2010 with the RED Epic. Apart from a couple of late afternoon feeding frenzies in deeper, darker waters we spent most of our days at this great cleaning station at Dhara Muli. The rays were extremely cooperative and I shot several passed at my go to 36 fps (24 fps playback) as well as 48 fps and 96 fps.
Shot on the last dive (free dive), on the last day of our trip to the Maldives, October 2015. Shot on RED Epic Dragon, 6K, 48 fps, H2O OLPF, Zeiss 15mm Distagon T* lens, Gates Deep Dragon underwater housing.
Green Turtle in Little Cayman
This very young green turtle was shot on RED Epic in a Gates Deep Epic housing in Little Cayman during the Digital Shootout of 2012. Shot at 5K 2:1, ISO 800, RC 8:1, using the Nikon Mount Tokina 10-17 lens and a very low amount of fill light from a pair of Light and Motion Sola 4000s. Music is James Newton Howard "Katniss Afoot" from the Hunger Games soundtrack.
Shot during the Digital Shootout, sponsored in part by Backscatter, June 15-28, 2013. Shot entirely on RED Epic this is the first use of the new Zeiss Distagon T* 15mm f2.8 lens with Canon mount. Music by Pat Metheny "Mastema" from the album "Tap: John Zorn's Book of Angels, Vol. 20"
