Its great how social media reminds you of past events, today Facebook told us of a shoot we did 1 year ago today. With such good memories it was decided to make one of the photos this weeks ‘Image of the Week’.
3dMB were invited to join In Deep Dive Centre for a day at sea to film Blue Sharks. Armed with our DJI Osmo for surface shots, Canon EOS 5d mk iv, Nauticam Housing & DivePro lights for underwater shots and DJI Phantom 4 pro v2 for aerial shots and 2 underwater 360 cameras, we boarded Eclipse at the Mountbatten pontoon in Plymouth. The weather was simply stunning, we really couldn’t have asked for better conditions.
Passing Rame Head and while the Phantom was airborne, the distinctive splashes and dorsal fins of common dolphins approached from the starboard side. The skipper cut speed and the dolphins played at the bows of Eclipse putting a great show on for all aboard. Once the play was over, the dolphins disappeared as quickly as the had arrived and we carried on out to sea. Later we encountered another pod. Once out as sea and chumming for shark we had interest from 2 blues, unfortunately none of the skittish sharks came close enough to the boat to get in the water to film – a great reason to go back…..
We created the following video for In Deep of the days events – once created, part 2 will include some of the beautiful creatures that are blue sharks.
