Following on the success of our UWT/NAD Lembeh photo workshops in 2013 and 2014, we will be hosting a 7 night/17 dive package at the best photo resort in the Lembeh Strait. Once again, we will be limiting the number of divers who will be able to attend this workshop in order to maximize everyone’s personal time with the instructors both underwater and in the resort. One of the highlights of an Underwater Tribe workshop is that the instructors don’t bring their cameras with them underwater, instead we spend time one on one with each participant helping them to compose their photos, aim their strobes, and anything else that helps them make the most of their time underwater.
Arrival is planned on the afternoon of the 18th with a “Meet and Greet” plus Introduction planned for the evening. The diving will start on the 19th with three dives planned per day for the 19th – 23rd and the final two dives on the morning of the 24th for a total of 7 nights and 17 dives. Each day will consist of two morning dives followed by lunch, a short lecture, an afternoon dive, and then evening critiquing sessions, dinner, and after dinner presentations by the instructors. On the 24th we will have a bit of a party with a final “End of the Week” slideshow of everyone’s best shots.
Although macro and critter photography are the highlights of diving in Lembeh Strait, there are also wide-angle photography opportunities available and we will be discussing several wide-angle photography techniques during the week, but the main focus will be on critter photography. Topics that will be discussed include: “The Basics of Lighting”, “Pursuing Portraits”, “Close Focus Wide Angle”, “Black and Blue Macro Backgrounds”, “Composition” as well as the effective use of Lightroom as well as other subjects as time provides. Students will all receive PDF copies of all of the presentations to take home. We have timed the workshop to coincide with Silk Air flights that arrive and depart on the 18th and 25th respectively via Singapore but connections are also available for from Jakarta and Bali to Manado.
