Please join me in Bonaire this July for the annual digital shootout! Last year we had a great time out in Fiji. This year, I'll be lecturing on image management and sharing photos both electronically and in print. Other presenters include Jim Watt, Berkley White, and Dan Baldocchi.
Sharpen your underwater photography skills at the fourth annual Digital Shootout, July 23-30th at the Divi Flamingo Beach Resort on the beautiful island of Bonaire. Far beyond a standard photo safari, the Digital Shootout is an in-depth learning experience on underwater digital photography that offers hands-on photo workshops, seminars on Adobe Photoshop, free use of demo gear, professional critiques and a photo contest with great prizes.
Berkley White owner of Backscatter Underwater Video and Photo, Dan Baldocchi of Light & Motion, professional underwater photographer Jim Watt, and Eric Cheng of Wetpixel will be your team of experts for week.
Seminar topics include: camera set up and maintenance, underwater shooting techniques, the principles of composition, image editing and processing with Adobe Photoshop, workflow and file management, as well as slide show, printing, and presentation options. This is a results-oriented trip designed to make you a better photographer and more skilled in underwater digital imaging.
If you have never taken an underwater photo come give it a try at our Digital Demo Day. We are offering free use of our equipment to those who need it.
In addition to the instructional seminars the Digital Shootout ends with a photography contest that includes some major prizes. Prizes last year included a Tetra and Titan housing from Light & Motion, copies of Adobe Photoshop CS, a dive trip to Fiji, and underwater photography equipment from Backscatter.
For the past four years The Digital Shootout has been teaching hundreds of divers the right way to take stunning underwater images as well as how to work with them in the digital world. Don’t miss this opportunity to shave years off the learning curve while blowing bubbles in paradise. For more information visit www.thedigitalshootout.com
