First dive lesson with Frogwomen Kara and Uma [3rd video of Project F]

Today I wanna present the longest video of Project F …yet!

In this one, Frogwoman Kara has her very first dive lesson and Frogwoman Uma is also joining for some practice!

Both are guided by a nice divemaster while I am behind the camera, so up to 4 people are underwater during the filming of this video.

Both frogwomen are practicing some basic scuba skills that are crucial when you wanna be a scuba diver.

 

First dive lesson with Frogwomen Kara and Uma, 1080p, 60 frames, 8:24 minutes

Frogwoman Kara is wearing a Cressi Fast wetsuit while breathing with a Mares Abyss regulator.

Frogwoman Uma is wearing a Camara Speedskin smooth skin wetsuit while breathing with a Scubapro C370 regulator.

 

Some preview pictures:

The picture quality in the video does actually look a little better than the screenshots

A short trailer that also includes scenes from this video:

Both did a really good job with these scuba exercises as they had very little (Uma) to no scuba experience (Kara).

Several exercises can be seen in the video, I thought about adding titles to sections of the video, but I don’t want to have spoilers in it 😉

I will use the spoiler function here for those who wanna be surprised by what will happen in the video! I recommend not reading it before watching the video 😉

Spoiler title
-01:14 Kara dives around the pool for the first time  -02:14 Kara and Uma clearing their scuba masks after flooding them    -04:18 Kara and Uma practicing to retrieve the regulator and how to start breathing from it underwater    -06:38 Kara and Uma practice on how to buddy breath by using the octopus regulator of the dive buddy   -08:24 Kara is testing a BCD for an exercise in buoyancy

As you can see in the pictures already some slight gear changes were made as Kara started diving barefoot. Over time that was a little too cold for her so she put on neoprene socks.

For the last 2 minutes of the video, she changed from the weight belt to a BCD vest.

Editing:

I used the same filters as before (white balance, 10% more brightness in the shadows, text).

The original/raw footage was about 17 minutes, so I cut out about half of it as some scenes were repeated and the intro and outro of each recording were (logically) cut out as well.

Perhaps I will put some of the extra footage in the VIP club in the future.

Frogwoman Kara was sadly only available for 2 hours instead of the planned 5, as there were massive train delays that day.

And that wasn’t the only problem that day, more on the shooting here:

But she is interested in shooting more videos…. 🙂

Wanna see more of Frogwoman Uma …aka…. “Granola Kitty”?

Check out her Facebook page where you can see much more of her:

Next week I will post the first video of her diving in different gas masks!

How can you watch the video?

It will be available again in the VIP club in April!

You can download these videos in the VIP club, but only for your personal use.

Don’t share them with anyone…. anywhere!

It’s pretty simple, I had to spend a lot of money, especially on scuba gear and location rent.

A lot of my …limited… savings were used up for that.

If I don’t make enough money with these videos…..I won’t be able to make new videos.

So…. I hope you appreciate these videos and want to see more in the future.
