    Diving with sharks and the E-PL1 in Grand Bahama

    I've had a GF1 for a while now, but I just picked up the E-PL1 and underwater housing for my trip to Grand Bahama. Had a few great dives, and thought I would share a few images. Results from the 9-18mm came out really well on our shark dive, even though I was using the flat port and didn't have a flash setup yet. Here are a few shots and a link to the entire set:

    Shark feeder hypnotizing one of the reef sharks makes it possible for him to hold it vertically! I took some video also, so I'm working on editing that as well.

    Wow!

    Not for me I'm afraid. I do NOT like being lower down on the food chain.

    Thanks for the comments! I also just completed a video compilation of some clips I took. If you're interested, take a look:

    I know this is a bit of a thread necro, but my images were noticed by a media agency in the UK and I worked with them to syndicate some articles around. It's pretty exciting for me, as the first time I've been published like this! Here's a link to an article in The Daily Mail:

    Incredible moment shark whisperer hypnotises deadly shark for 15 minutes with a gentle nose rub | Mail Online

    Also, if anyone is in the UK, you can find a few print articles appearing today in:

    The Times - News section, page 4
    The Daily Telegraph - page 8
    Metro - page 3
    Irish Daily Mirror - section M21 (pictured)
