Digital Underwater Photo.

The PADI Digital Underwater Photography specialty course is a scuba diving course which teaches you how to properly take pictures while underwater.

 

Prerequisites

In order to enroll in the PADI Digital Underwater Photography course, you need to be at least 15 years old and a certified PADI Open Water Diver (or equivalent).

 

Course Structure

During your Digital Underwater Photography specialty course, you will learn and practice different techniques for photographing objects underwater. This may include plants and aquatic life, macro photography, non-moving objects and other divers. Your instructor will discuss important aspects to keep in mind while you are taking pictures, such a visibility, lighting, color, subject composition and distance. During your open water dives, you will put these techniques into practice by photographing various subjects.

Once you have you completed the Digital Underwater Photography specialty course, you will receive a temporary Digital Underwater Photography certification card, which you can start using right away! You will receive your permanent card about 30-45 days after you have been certified.

 

Required Equipment

You will be required to have your own mask, fins, and snorkel for the duration of the course. You will be required to have your own camera with white balance capabilities (this does not include GoPro cameras) for use during the course dives. We would also recommend that you have a suitable exposure suit – a wetsuit during the winter months to protect your body from the cold and a lycra, or skin suit for the summer months to protect your body from jellyfish stings and scrapes.
