After five months of not getting my much needed #VitaminSEA, I was able to tag along with two friends on a day trip to Sombrero Island. We did a total of three dives on Saturday and although I’ve had the RX100 for more than two years, this was the first time I actually went all-out with wide angle photography. The previous dives always had some technical malfunction with the strobes and I wasn’t sure whether it had more to do with wrong prepping or actual hardware failure — my left strobe always had issues. As it turns out, the strobe wasn’t set to shoot as slave.
Below is raw footage of the octopus doing it’s camouflage thing — color and texture changing right before your very eyes. I’ve never gotten this kind of up close and personal footage. The cephalopod seemed to stand its ground and displayed the warning signs of it being threatened. I had the LED light turned off so as not to intimidate it further. I guess that was a good thing because it stayed.
