This video was filmed during a Backscatter expedition to Lembeh, Indonesia by Jeff Honda using Sola Nightsea Blue lights by Light & Motion. For more information about these lights, please visit: backscatter.com/sku/lmi-850-0213.lasso
This type of videography is possible using two elements – a blue light source to excite fluorescence from underwater organisms and a barrier filter to remove everything except the fluorescent light. Jeff Honda spent an entire week filming this, dedicating several hours each night meticulously setting up his tripod to capture these sequences. The amount of light being reflected back from the subjects is significantly less than what you would see using normal white light, so framing and exposures are significantly more challenging.
