In the summer of 2014 I was lucky enough to get some footage of cuttlefish while diving off of Castle beach and Pendennis point, Falmouth, Kernow (Cornwall), UK. There are believed to be at least 3 sub-species of cuttlefish around Cornwall, although the only positive way to tell is in the shape of ridges on the bone. I have declared these are sepia officinalis, the common cuttlefish, but it is unknown.
My dive buddies on the 2 dives were Elli Coates on the Castle beach dive where we explored the wreck of UB-128, and Paul Allaway and Patryk Uram when we dived the hole in the wall off of Pendennis point. In total from nearly 1 1/2 hours of video there is about 17 minutes from the 2 dives that are fair, and as my first dives where I focused on video instead of photographs, most of it is moving too fast or out of focus, or looking at the sky and sea bed, have learnt a lot in 2 dives and a few days editing this video, but still have a lot to learn.
I am a complete newbie with video and editing and have had some advice from some great friends, but am always open to constructive advice on ways to improve my techniques and skills. I have an Olympus PEN E-PM1 with E-PT06L housing, stock 14-42mm lens and internal flash (for photography) and a focusing (video) light mounted on the cold shoe adapter, and am aware of the limitations of using the kit I have and the problems with balancing the camera when I move and it is all about practice, anyone want to go diving?
