Topics to be covered (schedule subject to change)

We like to cater our presentations to the experience levels of our participants, so prior to the Photo Fest an email will be sent out asking about what each individual hopes to gain from attending. We encourage group discussion both during our presentations and on the boat (even underwater if you are good at signals or bring a slate). We usually divide up participants into groups of dSLR cameras and Point and Shoots, but sometimes we mix that up too. We will for sure cover the following along with so much more:

  • How to get the best shots
  • Caring for your camera
  • Wide-angle shooting tips for reefs, caverns, wrecks, and sharks
  • Macro-shooting
  • Suggestions for settings
  • Lighting
  • Post-processing
  • Video
  • Imagery from your host's recent adventures
