Berkley White - Cocos - One Dive, Two Hundred Hammerhead Sharks
Berkley White - Cocos - One Dive, Two Hundred Hammerhead Sharks
We were ending another epic dive at the world famous pinnacle known as Alcyone. The current was next to nothing yet the hammerheads were boiling up out of the deep. At the end of the dive we came up as a group and drifted off the buoy line. In the distance we saw a large dark cloud that I assumed was a giant school of jacks. It turned out to be well over 200 hammerhead sharks. As I drifted into this mega school I could see the sharks twitch when they saw me. I thought it was over when the school split into two groups, but then both groups circled back in a giant figure eight pattern to make eye contact over and over again. I was so excited I'm not sure how how I kept the camera steady. It was truly one of the best dives of my life.

Sola Nightsea Blue Fluorescent Video by Jeff Honda
Sola Nightsea Blue Fluorescent Video by Jeff Honda
This video was filmed during a Backscatter expedition to Lembeh, Indonesia by Jeff Honda using Sola Nightsea Blue lights by Light & Motion. For more information about these lights, please visit: http://www.backscatter.com/sku/lmi-850-0213.lasso
This type of videography is possible using two elements - a blue light source to excite fluorescence from underwater organisms and a barrier filter to remove everything except the fluorescent light. Jeff Honda spent an entire week filming this, dedicating several hours each night meticulously setting up his tripod to capture these sequences. The amount of light being reflected back from the subjects is significantly less than what you would see using normal white light, so framing and exposures are significantly more challenging.

Lightroom Tutorial - Dial-A-Blue - Go Ask Erin Tutorial Series
Q: My picture was shot in the Caribbean, but the water is far from Caribbean blue. What can I do in Lightroom to help it?
A: One of my favorite techniques to adjust water color is by sliding around in the Hue Saturation and Luminance (HSL) panel in the Develop module of Lightroom.

Lightroom Tutorial - Repositioning Strobes in Post - Go Ask Erin Tutorial Series
Q: I was lucky enough to get close to a Giant Black Sea Bass, but my lighting is all over the place. Is there a way to even it out in post?
A: You're gonna love this one. The Graduated and Radial Filters can relight your image after the fact!
Topics include building and applying graduated and radial filters in Lightroom, evaluating edits with different types of Before and After views.

Photoshop Tutorial - Puppet Warp - Fixing a Model in Post Tutorial
Q: My model's pose didn't turn out exactly as I would have liked it. Is there something I can do in post to alter her position?
A: Yes, but you have to go to Photoshop to do it. Puppet Warp is a fantastic feature in Photoshop that can help you re-adjust the fin position of a model (among other things) after the fact.

Lightroom 5 Tutorial - Video Editing
Q: I'm a still shooter, but have amassed a bunch of video clips that I have no idea what to do with. I don't want to learn new software just for video. What can I do with video in Lightroom?
A: You can do everything you need to make a basic edit, color correct, and export - all with the same skills you already know in Lightroom 5.

Lightroom 5 Tutorial - CreatingFocus (Quick Fix)
Lightroom 5 Tutorial - CreatingFocus (Quick Fix)
Custom vignettes using the graduated filter and new radial filter
Q: This picture was taken with my old camera gear, but I've never captured as good a pose. How can I perfect this shot? Color? Sharpening?
A: Color and Selective Sharpening will help, but you can create focus and punch with the help of a vignette.

The human eye is drawn to contrast before color, and to light areas before dark ones. Adding a vignette that darkens the edges of the frame can help to create focus and draw the viewer's eye right smack to he subject. Besides the basic Post-Crop Vignette slider, Lightroom provides us with a bunch of bitchin tools with which to build custom vignettes. Don't get carried away though - I've seen plenty of otherwise lovely images ruined by too-heavy vignetting. The effect should manifest at a nearly subconscious level, or it will create distraction instead of focus.

Lightroom Tutorial: Underwater Black & White Conversion by Go Ask Erin
Lightroom Tutorial: Underwater Black & White Conversion by Go Ask Erin
There are tons of ways to get Black and White images, but to make the picture great, it must have at least some pure black and pure white. Using only Lightroom, I'm able to completely drop out the background while keeping the subject properly exposed. This technique works best with a blue water background and a subject lit with at least a teensy bit of strobe. It's an amazing transformation.

Photoshop Tutorial: Content Aware Fill by Go Ask Erin
Photoshop Tutorial: Content Aware Fill by Go Ask Erin
The thing about using Content Aware Fill on the edge of an image is developing a feel for when it will work, and when it's a waste of your time. On Kami's image, with the dark, featureless background and relatively small amount of clipped image data, Content Aware Fill is a no-brainer.

Product Review: The Nautilus Lifeline Marine Rescue Radio
Product Review: The Nautilus Lifeline Marine Rescue Radio
Jim Decker, Backscatter CEO, and Mike Lever, inventor of the Nautilus Lifeline, discuss this powerful, must-have safety accessory.

The Nautilus Lifeline is a GPS enabled marine rescue radio that is waterproof to 450 feet, allows communication between a diver and boats, other divers with Lifelines, and in case of emergency will transmit a diver's coordinates across a 4000 square mile area.

The Nautilus Lifeline works everywhere in the world, and the beauty of its approach is that its designed to communicate with boats in your immediate vicinity over standard radio frequencies. Unlike EPIRB devices which transmit your coordinates via satellite to a potentially faraway location where it could be irrelevant to your rescue, the Nautilus Lifeline is intended to get you found fast!

Every diver should carry a Nautilus Lifeline. Learn more about this revolutionary communication device here: http:

Taking the Jump from Stills to Video
Taking the Jump from Stills to Video
Rob Duncan has always had an interest in shooting video, but as a still shooter, the whole process has always intimidated him. The shooting and post processing that go into making a great video seemed daunting. But with video becoming more of a relevant feature of still cameras, he thought that it might be a great time to take that leap. This video was shot in South Florida along with fellow Backscatter West teammates, Sean Boone and Becca Boring.

If you'd like to watch this in 4K, visit our YouTube Channel: http://bsuw.co/GH4-4k-video and click on the cog icon at the bottom right of the video and choose the Quality Setting 2160p (4K UHD)

The Panasonic Lumix GH4 4K camera can record video in Ultra HD at a resolution of 3840x2160 30p/24p or 4096x2160 24p. Standard HD resolution is only 1920x1080p making 4K 4 times the resolution of HD. This is why you might also hear 4K referred to as 'quad HD'. The GH4 is the only mirrorless or SLR camera to offer on board 4K 30p video recording directly to an SD cards no bulky external recording units required.
