Underwater Photographer’s Mindset
REBOOT EXTRA - As a special thank you for all those who have joined Alex on the hugely successful Reboot Masterclass course Alex is giving a special, free Reboot Webinar open only to Reboot Alumni. Registration is required for access to join live or to be able to watch the recording for free in the week following the event. This event will only be then available via the paid recordings archive to the wider diving community.
“Many factors combine to produce stunning underwater photos: such as equipment, settings, lighting and composition,” says Alex. “This talk focuses on another – the photographer’s mindset – examining how our planning, preparation and decisions, when we’re in the field and underwater, open up superior photographic opportunities. The aim of the talk is to help you better develop these skills, to improve your productivity in the field.”
“Underwater photographers cannot usually change camera gear mid-dive, or switch location once underwater! So selecting the right places to dive, visiting them at the correct time and knowing what we’re after in terms of subjects and light are especially critical steps to success in underwater photography. Fortunately, there is much we can learn to predict pre-dive, from the orientation of the site, the position of the sun, the sea conditions and, of course, our previous knowledge of the location and its marine life.”
Alex will use his Red Sea workshop from the end of 2021 as a case study, showing only images from that trip. Alex will detail why the sites were chosen for the workshop group, how those predictions held up underwater and what Alex actually shot on those dives. The presentation is a chance to discuss important factors for successful images that don’t usually come up in standard teaching. And it will provide the chance to develop an understanding and an advantage in an area that many photographers leave totally up to chance.
