Introduction to Underwater Photography

From simple "point and shoot" cameras to advanced digital single lens reflex (DSLR) bodies, digital photography has not only revolutionized shooting pictures, but it has also opened up a whole new world underwater. 

What was once the domain of a select few, with a large pool of resources and a tremendous amount of patience, is now readily available to the casual open water scuba diver.

Join Aquatic Adventures and international award winning underwater photographer Tim Neumann, for an in-depth (no pun intended!) look at underwater photography. 

Starting with an overview of available underwater cameras and equipment, we will explore tips and techniques that will aid you in getting the best, most dynamic underwater images possible.

If you are like many people, capturing underwater video is as far as you get, with hours and hours of video footage still stored on your camera. We are here to break that habit, it's time to turn that footage into an edited masterpiece.

In this course, we will explore the ins and outs of editing video in Apple's iMovie video editing software. 

First things first, we will start by getting all that footage organized, and then we will learn techniques and helpful approaches for separating the good from the bad.  

Once we have our clips selected we will begin by putting our video timeline together. Want professional transitions, titles and sound, no problem we cover that next.

We wrap things up with a discussion on exporting and sharing your newly created masterpiece. Welcome to the world of video!
