The Barracuda short video

This was a very typical moment while diving in Antigua this kind of sized Barracuda would come in close sometimes with friend. Always curious (with friend bi-curious ok bad joke). Am glad I managed to get some video up about it, can't wait to try out my go pro as you can see this is not taken with anything near sophisticated for todays market.

Colour correcting the Nurse Shark in Antigua

You can see some of the settings I used in Photoshop here to achieve the result (ignore the bottom two layers and know just one of these is your photo OR video)

The layers will be as shown above the first (bottom) 2 but you may get away with fewer - just make sure to have the two shown selected in the images here. Any problems and you can ask me from commenting below. I will help you set up your photoshop files for you.

One of the best Antigua diving videos (colour corrected)

What I like about this video is that it accurately shows the quality of diving that the Caribbean and Antigua in particular has to offer.

Antigua Diving with Indigo Diving and Nishi Squid

Had a couple of tanks with indigo diving today and was very impressed with their levels of service and the boat. The diving - how was it ? Well we saw all manner of tiny critters from blennies to flamingo tongues and peterson shrimp and pistol shrimp sharing a flat = corkscrew anemone. But what was a real treat was the black tip reef shark ! it was also a pleasure to dive with Steve and Nishi and Pat from Indigo divers. All very good divers and that made for a great two tanks. Nishi is blogworthy as she is an expert on SQUID! She even found 3..So the site was Double Dip and we got no deeper than 18m for the first dive, lobsters, one king crab and a very healthy sized barracuda. The second dive was in the vicinity and forget the name if it had one. The second was where the shark cruised on by. 

The video is on this page Antigua Shark Sighting
