    Learning Underwater Photography with Blue Water Prism and Dive Choice Mexico – our introductory class

    As a scuba diver your friends always ask what it is like – now there is a way to share your excitement with them. Our Underwater Photography Class gives you the skill to take quality images that you can share and remember your dives with. And with digital technology easily available, it is much simpler.

    Anyone can take "snap shots" while diving. Blue Water Prism and Dive Choice Mexico want you to take photographs. Learn from a professional photographer who can help you to get the most out of any underwater digital camera and in no time you will be on your way to creating great images!

    During the course you will learn good habits (photographic and scuba) as well as a basic understanding of techniques to shoot good underwater images. Your instructor has experience using digital camera systems, from point-and-shoot to digital single lens reflex cameras as well as being an expert at shooting local marine life.

    The best way to learn photography is to have a hands-on experience. Our course has a lecture and a practical part. The lecture portion of the course focuses on important concepts and techniques. When you hit the water you understand how your camera and your subjects think and will react to you. Covered is proper preparation and care of the equipment, exposure, white balance, lighting and composition. You then will go on several dives to practice your skills, along with your instructor. The two review sessions with your instructor are where you will gain insight into how to improve your shots.

    At the end you will receive a DVD or CD-ROM with your images on it to take home with you.
