The course is open to anyone seriously interested in improving their underwater photography in an informal, friendly, non-competitive environment.
Underwater Photo WorkshopThis workshop is designed for moderately experienced UW photographers and, alongside the exploration of 'technical' areas of photography such as exposures, compositions, and camera settings, will impart how a greater understanding and sensitivity to the behaviour of marine life can enable anyone to take award winning photos.
You do not need the latest, most expensive equipment to get photos that you are truly happy with. This course will also give you the opportunity to try some of the latest photo post-processing software to get the best final results from the shots you take. The course is open to anyone seriously interested in improving their photography skills in an informal, friendly, non-competitive environment.
