I think my favorite part was the massive group of rays.


Thanks JT! Now if we can just import some of those animals to our waters!

Haha, yeah, I added that in. Actually, I looked for a section of clips that had fairly normal breathing sounds. It turns out I make a lot of weird noises underwater! And, I also cuss a lot when I can't get things in focus or some other camera problem frustrates me. So, yeah, that's the fully edited and censored underwater breathing track. :)


HAHA you should release an un edited out take clip for fun :)

Yep, I dragged a DJI Phantom 4 around the world to get those shots. Worthwhile but a pain when carrying all the other scuba and camera equipment!

Thank YE. I think the thing you ask what is it, is a Cowrie. You're probably familiar with their shells.

Komodo

Post by stphnmartin » Sun Oct 15, 2017 5:31 pm

I took a trip to Komodo in Indonesia last July and have just now finished the video. I used a brand new camera setup, the Panasonic GH5, and learned a lot I wish I knew before the trip! The highlight of the trip was witnessing a school of 200 - 300 cow nosed rays. Anyway, Indonesia is a very special place on this earth. If it's not on your dive list, it should be!
