So, for the first time in a very long time, my girlfriend and I had a day off together. YAY! So we decided to go to the North Shore here on Oahu and snorkel at Sunset Beach.
It was a great day. Woke up early to beat the long line that usually forms and got there around I'd say 10AM. Great parking up front and our usual spot under the palm tree to the right.
After relaxing for a bit and waiting for the sun to warm up the water, I had started putting together a story board in my head. I wanted to shoot with my GoPro again and see what I could do if I thought about it before hand. So here's the result of that.

The guy is a musical genius!
So what have I learned from this experience of shooting?
1. I need to get some fins for myself. You have no idea how hard it is to keep a little camera stable while struggling to stay down.
2. Where to point the camera. A lot of the time I'm pointing the camera at the horizon. Something I really can't tell with my version of GoPro. It has no screen so I have no idea what I'm looking at. So I need to over compensate that wide angle lens. Not just left and right but up and down.
3. Practice staying down. I used to be able to stay down longer, but I don't go diving as often as I used to. Ear pains keep me from staying down and running out of breathe is not good.
All in all though I am very proud of my baby diving down. She isn't the best underwater swimmer and here I have proof of her taking the plunge. YAY!
