THURSDAY, AUgUST 22, 2019 Location
1:00 P.M. – 4:00 P.M. How to Autofocus, Basic and Advanced
Sounds simple. Autofocus. Should be as difficult as boiling water. But not so fast. In this seminar I'll go over the practical realities of focus and how to decide what techniques to use for the scene you're shooting.

Stupid Simple Macro Manual Exposure
For 99% of what we do auto exposure is our enemy in underwater photography. In this seminar I'll boil it down and show you how simple macro manual exposure is for underwater photography.

Getting the Blues Right—The First Step in Wide Angle Exposure
Wide angle photography is a delicate balancing act between the underwater natural light from the sun and the artificial light from your strobes. Learn the proper order of setting up a shot and starting it off right with the right color blue.

The Zen of Underwater Strobe Placement
I often get asked "Where do I put my strobes?" to which my response is "What do you want to light?" By asking this simple question, learn where to place your strobes for what YOU want to light and improve both your lighting and your composition.

How to Win
Every year at the shootout I get asked "What are the judges looking for?" Learn what makes a great image and how to do it.
