This one-day, two-dive course is designed to take you through the basics of underwater digital photography. Photography is a very personal and subjective activity, but there are a few simple rules that can make a huge difference to the shots you take. Learn them here!
PHOTO-NATURALIST COURSE - Get More Out Of Your Dives:
This intensive two-day course will not only get you comfortable with your camera and it’s settings, it will also make you look at the reef and your photo subjects in a new light!
Taught by Roatan author Mickey Charteris, the course focuses on where to focus! How to find and capture fishes and critters on a Caribbean reef. How to choose and use a variety of settings and techniques for each subject. It’s like an underwater safari with your own photo pro, guiding you towards the shots you’ll be proud of.
TOTAL IMMERSION COURSE - Get The Most From Your Digital Camera:
This full five-day course is designed for the diver wanting to get serious about taking their underwater photography to the next level!
Each day will focus on a different aspect of dive photography, learning when to use different techniques for different situations and to achieve the shots that you can see in your mind’s eye.
COLD-WATER CONVERSION COURSE - It's Time To Take The Gloves Off!
Taught in conjunction with award-winning photographer Steve Zedekar, this five day, ten-dive course is “Total Immersion” with a twist; highlighting the differences in techniques between cold and warm-waters. Use Manual White Balance settings and ISO to get the most out of tropical diving. Students of all levels will be challenged throughout the week to learn and develop ways of using all the light available to them. Whether at the base of the deeper walls at the edge of the Cayman Trench or in the sunlit shallows, full of lively coral heads and darting fishes, make the most of your light!
