At the London International Dive Show (LIDS) 8/9th March I will co-hosting the Underwater Photography Clinic with Photoshop expert and Wetpixel member Saeed Rashid. In fact I will be joining quite a Wetpixel tradition as this session has previously be run by Wetpixel members Paul Kay and John Bantin.

The session will run on both days between 1:45 and 3:00 and much of the presentation will focus on helping you get better images. I will be advising on how to improve your in water photographic techniques and Saeed demonstrating how RAW conversion and Photoshop processing can improve those images you have already taken.

If you are thinking of coming to LIDS and would like direct feedback on how you can improve your shots please email two or three of your images to info@focusindepth.com (the address can handle files up to 20mb, so RAW's or JPEG's are fine). Alternatively you can bring your pictures to the show and give them directly to me on the BSoUP stand, in the morning before the presentation each day.

Ideally we are after problem images. Pictures that just aren't as good as you hoped that they would be. But we would also like a few stunners to be submitted, as a lot can also be learned from discussing why they are so effective.

Dean,



which day are you going down?



Alex, If you're desperate I can let you have something - maybe even one of those green water magic filter shots - the one of my buddy below the pub?



Cheers,



Tim

That'll be the Scorpio in me then.



I'm more than happy to meet up and drive down - you get to, say, Stoney or somewhere down the M40 and it would be my pleasure.



Right now I'm easy on dates so Sat or Sun would be ok.

Hey Tim,

Yeah, it would be great to have some UK images. But ideally not filter shots (although I do love that shot of yours). If I mention the word filter in public people are quick to say there he goes again plugging his filters! And that is even when I am talking about the filter for my aquarium. ;)

Anyway, to get back on track. Please send your images in - it is a UK dive show - so UK images would be purr-fick!

A big thank you to those who have already sent images in. Last chance tonight to get them in by email, alternatively give them to me directly at the show. I will mainly be on the BSoUP stand 346.

For those who haven't seen it - I will also have a couple of copies of Wetpixel Quarterly with me.
