Shark Snorkel – Morning post-photographic editing and presentation on wide-angle photography followed by a wide-angle free diving expedition, photographing oceanic blacktip sharks on snorkel. .
Model Day – Another shark snorkel followed by single tank dive. During both activities today we will be focussing on working with each other and creating powerful ‘two shots’ with an animal subject and a human together.
Editing – Each day you will be given time, after your crit session, for post-processing. Staff will take you through the essentials of the Adobe products we use on the program, both Lightroom and Photoshop. On this day you’ll do an underwater fashion shoot in a deep pool, using accessories to maximise the look and learn how to take instruction from potential clients to ensure you deliver what they are expecting.
Rockpool expedition and picnic – Work on a chosen shot you want to re-create. Plan the shot and work out how to re-create the look and then the group will assist each other in the rockpools, with extra lighting and other accessories. It goes without saying by now, on each day of shooting there’s a crit session and post-processing time.
Wide Angle Dives – Double tank SCUBA dives looking at wide angles of sharks, turtles, potato bass and seascapes. Particular focus on obtaining that perfectly balanced exposure, and on techniques for interaction with all these species.
