Taking stunning underwater photos requires special equipment and knowledge beyond merely pointing your camera and hoping for the best. The learning portion of this course will teach you to take amazing photos, and then you’ll get to practice what you’ve learned. Take home stunning images of the fish and animals you see off the gorgeous shores of Oahu. Whether you’re using a simple point and shoot, or a DSLR like the pros, you’ll leave this course with a series of amazing shots to show your friends.
During this course you’ll learn how to choose the right underwater camera system for you. You’ll also become familiar with the PADI SEA (Shoot, Examine, Adjust) method and learn the basic points of composition for getting great images underwater. You’ll also learn the basics of underwater videography with your digital camera. Once you’re ready, you’ll get to experience the underwater come alive through your camera’s viewfinder. On your dive you’ll seek out exotic sea creatures and stunning coral and leave with a one of a kind souvenir- a picture you took yourself!
The Level one is open to skin divers, snorkelers and scuba divers of all levels, and requires one open water photo dive (or snorkeling session if you are a non-diver). For the level two certification, you will complete a second dive, and you need to be a PADI certified diver.
