About the Course
The underwater environment is a challenging place for photography and today’s desktop editing suite is our version of the dark room from yesteryear where we can bring the best out in the photos we’ve shot. Post-processing can be used to make minor corrections to an underwater photo or be used as its own creative force to take your imagination and photos in a whole new direction. The possibilities are endless!
In this workshop you’ll learn about file management and storage to ensure safe keeping of your amazing photos. We will discuss workflow approaches and using sample images from a range of underwater scenarios you’ll learn how to adjust both basic and advanced settings to make your images pop. We’ll discuss mistakes to avoid and how best to export your photos for social media and printing so you can share your success with others.
This workshop is suitable for novice and experiences photographers, whether you’re seeking to understand basic photo editing or improve your post-processing game this workshop will have something for you.
These workshops will be delivered in small person in-class sizes to ensure a quality presentation as well as comply with public health rules, so spaces are limited.
