Digital Photography classes:
We teach digital photography at Wiley's SCUBA Locker in Riverside California. We also teach on locations such as: on the Aggressor fleet, at Bay Islands Beach Resort, Black Beards Cruses, Fiji, South Pacific, Aqua Cat Cruises, and great dive locations around the world. We also give private lesson on request in both Still and Video equipment and Editing programs. We also give seminars and symposiums on both photography and videography techniques.
OBJECTIVE: The goal of this course is to give the student an overview of the underwater still photo and process. Cameras, housings, lighting, exposure, storage, computer editing, and printing. The end of this course will give the student the ability use underwater cameras and take better photos underwater and above. By the end of this course the student will have a basic working knowledge of underwater cameras and will edit 3 to 5 of their best photos ready for printing. They will be able to start a digital portfolio, even with slide film. This course will accommodate slide film for purposes of travel and prints for classroom instruction, although digital is preferred and recommended.
