Should I enroll in the One Day Underwater Photography course?

Harlequin Shrimp pair from Seraya Point in BaliAlways wanted to learn but don't know where to start? Are you intimidated by the thought of taking a class with other divers?  Do you feel that because you are new to underwater photography, that you don't know where to start?  Are you interested in a class but think your equipment is not fancy enough?

Then this course is for you! Our one day underwater photography course introduces brand new photographers to the wonderful world of underwater photography. During this class we concentrate on the basics. 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 and final thoughts from the instructor. The One Day Underwater Photography course is a great introduction to underwater photography.  Topics include taking care of your equipment, strobe positioning, learning to control basic exposure fundamentals, and diving like a photographer.

What Will I Learn?

This is a class aimed specifically at people who have bought their first camera.  We describe the best way to maintain the camera and housing. A walk through of how to set up the camera and housing efficiently. A discussion of the most relevant settings on the camera and where to start.  We explain basic strobe positioning and how to get the best colours underwater.  Our aim is to build your confidence to a level where you are capturing great photos on every dive.
