INON UK EQUIPMENT SEMINARS

Getting The Most From Your INON Underwater Strobe with INON UK’s Steve Warren

An underwater strobe is an essential tool for most underwater photographers. At its most basic it is used to provide illumination and restore colour. But strobes also let you light your underwater photographs creatively to accentuate textures, introduce shadows and highlights to add drama and to darken backgrounds to hide distractions or give your subject more impact. But many divers are frustrated by the difficulties of mastering their strobe. There are lots of reasons for the confusion, many caused by intimidating jargon and complicated camera menus. To help you get the most from your INON underwater strobe and obtain the best underwater pictures possible, right from the start, INON UK has designed a thorough INON UK strobe users mini course.

INON UK COMPOSITION SEMINARS

The Art of Taking Underwater Photographs with Lisa Collins

Composition is probably one of the most important aspects of underwater photography, but is often overlooked. It is no good having a technically perfect image if the composition is poor. Getting the right composition requires attention to detail of both the foreground and background and how the two work together cohesively.

During this seminar Lisa will talk about subject selection, close up composition, wide angle composition, natural lighting and artificial light techniques, advanced lighting skills, and behavioural photography to help you gain the most from your underwater photography.
