Excited to continue working with our new AOI UWL-09, we headed out again to Casino Point to spend time with the giant sea bass (Stereolepis gigas). The temperature was already two degrees colder than our last dive just a week or so before!
Today's exercise was to avoid overexposing in taking pictures in the direction of the sun; or, as we continue to learn, with any sun whatsoever. We also experimented with varying the aperture to avoid overexposure.
Since the water was so murky, we ended up just exercising our breath holds at depth: since the giant sea bass (Stereolepis gigas) usually hang out at or below 15 metres, a solid two minutes is required for any but the snappiest of photography skills.
