Are you interested in beginning underwater photography but are afraid that you don’t have the knowledge or experience to start? Or do you already have an underwater camera and want to learn how to improve your images? Then Key Largo Dive Center Underwater Photography Super-Course is for you!
Our Underwater Photography Super-Course is intended for the beginner to intermediate level underwater photographer. It concentrates on digital cameras utilizing underwater housings.
The course includes: underwater photography basics, and intermediate skills including macro and wide-angle lenses. It also includes hands-on practice in the use of filters, strobe lights, and video lights.
While the emphasis is on underwater photography, this course also includes sessions in video. Why? Because although photographs are the most challenging to capture, almost every underwater photographer will also takes some type of video. Often it ranges from just 5-10 second short snips of action to longer full-length video.
The course fee of only $1599 includes 12-14 dives over 7 days, instruction, printed course materials, and more. Bring your own camera and housing or purchase one of our Photo-Student Camera Packages. We have rental video lights and strobes or bring your own. The camera package includes everything you need to begin improving your skills and the quality of your photographs. Including digital camera, housing, tray, arms, filter, and wide-angle lens. Email us for details on the camera package (details and prices change as camera and housing models are periodically updated by the manufacturer). Key Largo Dive Center is a dealer for Ikelite, Light & Motion, FantaSea and Kraken. You can even use a housing with your smart phone if you desire. We can help you set up the perfect beginner or intermediate level underwater imaging package.
