Digital Underwater Photographer
Whether you just want to show your non-diving friends or relatives what you see when underwater, or you aspire to publish underwater photos in magazines or win competitions, the PADI Underwater Digital Photography course is a great place to start.
During this course you will learn simple techniques for getting great shots. Subjects covered include photo composition, the use of strobes, how to eliminate back-scatter and post-dive processing of images.
The course comprises two parts:
- Part 1 is held in the classroom and a session in the pool, where basic techniques are covered in a controlled environment.
- Part 2 looks at the theory in more depth and puts the techniques you have learned to practice in open water (2 dives). After the dive the photos are downloaded and if necessary can undergo post dive processing using software such as Adobe Photoshop or similar.
Course Price: £135 (with your own camera)
