Mark your calendars! In March the Northern California Underwater Photographic Society (NCUPS) will be hosting Jack and Sue Drafahl in a underwater digital photography workshop! The workshop is open to everyone, and will be held in Millbrae, California.

The workshop will be held in two sessions. The morning session will focus on mastering digital underwater photography with topics ranging from setting up your camera to keeping it maintained, and almost everything in between. Methods for taking digital pictures underwater will be explored and suggestions provided for improving your skills. Students will learn how to obtain good exposures and improve lighting techniques using available light, flash and balancing the two.

In the afternoon Jack and Sue, the "Digital Duo" will be covering Adobe Photoshop for the underwater photograher. Topics to be covered include: color correction, exposure correction, backscatter removal, blooming effects, cropping images, printing tips, selective color correction, extreme salvage, using Bridge, editing Adobe Camera Raw files and more. We will show you how to improve your editing skills, speed up the editing process, and set up a workflow to streamline your image editing.

Jack and Sue Drafahl are a husband and wife team of professional photojournalists, lecturers and multimedia producers. They are the founders of the Oregon Coast Digital Center, an enhanced learning facility designed to help others learn Photoshop skills. http://www.jackandsue.com.

As a bonus, Jack and Sue will be doing a presentation of their own images Friday night, March 9 at the NCUPS Membership Meeting. NCUPS meetings are ALWAYS free and open to everyone interested in underwater photography and videography. The digital workshop is $75 for the morning session only, and $100 for the entire day (lunch included for all day attendees). NCUPS members get a discount.
