Underwater

I’ve visited this location on Shodoshima a few times, its only ten minutes down the road & is right beside an old school… That rock outcrop totally becomes an island at high tide, but is accessible without getting wet at low tide…

A few days ago low tide coincided with both the sunset and some nice clouds, so I went & put my GoPro H3 camera in its Cam.Do waterproof box with a grunty USB battery and set it out on the outcrop, shooting a frame every five seconds from about 4pm, and then retrieving it after dark….

There is a tiny shrine on the rock, which IS above the high tide mark…

This shot was one from the 1,545 taken in that session – it is such fun to go retrieve a camera from a remote location & copy the data across, set a render going & then see what was captured!

I have also been doing a bit of underwater shooting with the GoPro – the results are quite magical, this frame grab doesn’t do it justice… My first underwater session was all shot at 24fps and I love it, especially set to music & sound, but I did a session today shooting at 48fps and I can’t wait to see the results. The 24fps shot were quite dreamy, these should be doubly so!

btw this is the little camera floater handle I am using – bought at Yodobashi Camera in Umeda, Osaka – BHPhoto call them The Bobber
