On assignment for National Geographic underwater DoP Luis Lamar descends thousands of feet in the submarine Nadir to the largely unseen Northeast Canyons and Seamounts located off the coast of Massachusetts. The NE Canyons are the first and only Marine National Monument in the Atlantic Ocean.
Outfitted in underwater housings are two RED DSMC2 HELIUM cameras, which Luis controls from inside the submersible. Inside Nadir, Luis uses a RED DSMC2 GEMINI to document the action in the sphere.
Part of a two-week dive with a team of researchers from @whoi.ocean, @oceanx and @NASA, Luis captures motion and still images of fragile and pristine deep marine ecosystems with rich biodiversity, including deep-sea corals and other organisms that could lead to scientific and medical breakthroughs.
