NEW GH5S!! First Test


No Comments

Just a smidge over the moon with my new Panasonic GH5 S camera and Nauticam housing! 😍 We put it through it’s paces today pushing its ISO limits with a trial in a large cavern on Chinese Garden line in Cenote Tajma-Ha. It soars past my old GH4 in leaps and bounds in regards to low light … really excited to see what more it can do in the many ideas that are flowing already!

Refreshing to work with another creative! Bernadette and I teamed up to practise playing around with lighting in caverns yesterday, moved into cave today and will be diving again tomorrow. So far so good, communication is getting really smooth, I think we will have our own secret language by the end of this project … More footage to come!!

Kantunchi Dry caving and Survey


No Comments

Final Day of dry caving … for now! OsamaDavide and I teamed up to explore and survey part of Kantun Chi whilst Peter, Angelica and Juan did another section. It was very small and crawly and 99% sump. It was Davide’s first time dry caving and hats off … we spent a long time in the cave and connected to a separate entrance.

I am very excited to kick off my new collaboration with Mauro Bordignon and his company cave world with this moody dark short compilation of a spectacular dive playing with the reflections in this cave system.

I had so much fun trying out my new Light Monkey canister light and playing with the Suex DPVs (thank you Osama) … See if you can spot who is who

Cenote “First Timer”


No Comments

 

Currently I am making a documentary on a new cave system ‘String of Pearls’ which is currently under exploration by Harry Gust and still growing!

It’s such an awesome place and I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to shoot and document this cave.

This beauty is Cenote “First Timer” a cenote in the String of Pearls system! It hasn’t been visited since 2006. Harry attached a rope through the hole which you see top right and it was about a 5m descent to the floor. I then proceeded to get incredibly muddy and light the cave up for shooting some spectacular footage. I feel so fortunate to have spent the day in this amazing place with the bats!

MNemo Demo


No Comments

 

Sebastien Kister‘s MNemo has been a game changer in Harry’s exploration and surveying of “String of Pearls”. It was really interesting to see it being put through it’s paces today and how fast and easy it is to use. Here is a short clip demonstrating just that …
If you are interested to find out more about the surveying tool check out Ariane’s Line and stay tuned for the documentary Harry and I are producing about this cave system which will include an in depth feature about device and it’s use in cave exploration.Film and post-production Katy Fraser
