On Wednesday February 28, 2011 the first Advanced Underwater Photography course was given by me. My student, a young woman from The Netherlands, who already completed an Underwater Photography course in Thailand and who wanted to improve her pictures further. Her camera a Canon Powershot D10 capable of taking underwater pictures till a depth of 10 meters. So we had to limit our dives to that depth. Not a real problem because the best lighting conditions for working without an external strobe are in the first 10 meters of water.
This course is less about taking good pictures and more about improving the results after you leave the water. Still you need a good picture to start with (and that is the focus of the normal Underwater Photography course), but a lot needs to be done in the post-processing. A task that was done for you by the photoshop in the times of photo-negative or -positive film. Nowadays with digital imaging these steps are still necessary to get optimal results and need to be done by you with help of photo editing software. This advanced underwater photography course focuses on the basic and advanced techniques to do that.
