After your independent study, you and your instructor will review important aspects of underwater photography. He/she will introduce you to some basic underwater photo and video techniques which you will immediately practice on your first dive either at 09:00. The dive is followed by a debriefing, a review of your images and the first processing. Expect using some more advanced photo and video skills on the second training dive at 14:30. You will also process the pictures more independently this time before showing off the results of your days’ work.
