Some stills from my recent shoot in Bonaire for Scuba Diver Life (www.scubadiverlife.com).
While the main portion of the shoot was for a web video, we also attended a workshop with well-known underwater camera sales and education company Backscatter. If there is ANYTHING you need to know regarding underwater filming equipment, these guys are the place to go. Hands down. They’ve been involved in aiding cinematographers and photographers from all over the world, including National Geographic, Holly wood movies, BBC, etc.
I had never shot macro underwater before, so the guys from Backscatter were extremely helpful in setting me up with all the gear I needed – which happened to be the new Sony NEX 5n, an incredible little mirrorless camera that also shoots video in 1080p at 60 frames per second!
I hope to be uploading a video shortly.
