Advanced Underwater Photo Course


Should I Enroll in the Advanced Underwater Photo Course?

Advanced Underwater Photo CourseDo you have a good understanding of the basics of photography? You can confidently enter the water knowing that you will get some great keepers?  However, there is something in the back of your mind that knows you can take better photos?  Or perhaps you are stuck in a rut and want to learn a few new ideas?

Then the Advanced Underwater Photo Course is for you! Our two day advanced underwater photography course is geared toward bring your photography to the next level.  During this class we give a quick review of the basics before moving on. We aim to give new photographers a quick overview of how to take photos underwater. This class is run with a maximum of 4 students but is usually conducted one to one. We start with a morning lecture, a dive with the instructor and then lunch. After lunch it's more theory, a second dive, and image review. One day two we maintain a similar schedule with final thoughts from the instructor at the end of the day.

The Two Day Underwater Photography course is a great introduction to underwater photography.  It goes more into depth than the one day course and we get more technical as well.  Topics include taking care of your equipment, strobe positioning, learning to control basic exposure fundamentals, and diving like a photographer. We also discuss composition, wide angle photography, and secret macro techniques.

What Will I Learn?

This is a class aimed at competent underwater photographers.  We walk you through some very interesting material during the 4 dives.  We spend a day on macro ideas as well as a day on wide angle. Macro topics include:  advanced strobe positioning, black and blue backgrounds, playing with DOF, and snooting.  Wide angle topics include: working with models, the near and far, split shots, capturing sunrays.  Of course we are also open to discussing exactly what you want to learn. You may be competent in some others and want to improve on others. Let us know and we will customize the class to your needs.
