I'm finally editing again...

After a long break in image editing I have an horrendous backlog, but now I'm finally back on track again... and you can expect a lot of new images to be added to the ScubaPixel database.



Posted on Jun 17, 2013

Editing is for me the least exciting part of underwater photography, but unfortunately it is a necessary chore.

With several trips over the last few years and not enogh time on my hands, it was inevitable that I would end up with a huge backlog.

Ironically, the Banggai cardinalfish is threatened in it’s native habitat at Banggai Island off Sulawesi, but is considered an invasive species in Lembeh Strait were it has been accidentally introduced.

New images in the pipeline

Add to that the problems I've had lately with a new computer and monitor card which did not want to cooperate, and you can imagine the amount of un-edited images on my hard drive.

After getting a Spyder Pro 4 monitor calibration tool I'm finally back on track, and you can expect images from these destinations to be added to the ScubaPixel database soon:

        • Siladen, Indonesia
        • Gangga Island, Indonesia
        • Lembeh Strait, Indonesia
        • Tufi, Papua New-Guinea
        • Lissenung/Kavieng, Papua New-Guinea
        • Walindi/Kimbe Bay, Papua New-Guinea
        • Malta and Gozo

In addition, I will be going through some older trips to Croatia, various destinations in Norway and Sweden to make sure everything is up to speed.

One of the most menacing-looking fish I've ever seen, the devil scorpionfish is a master of camouflage. The light from my strobes makes the red color visible, giving it away.

Killing my darlings

A big part of tidying up is deleting images that will never be used. Why is this always so hard?

Norwegian underwater photographer Per Eide told me years ago to "kill my darlings" - but I can never seem to quite get it done. Well, I'm running out of diskspace, so now is the time...!

Anyway, stay tuned for more image updates!
