Diving into Imaging: Exploring the Underwater World with your Camera

Roughly 70% of the earth is covered by water, so why limit your photography to only 30% of the Earth? Capturing great images beneath the ocean is with-in your reach as B&H under water photography maven Larry Cohen shows you the equipment you’ll need, and how to get the most out of underwater cameras. This special seminar will cover the entry level cameras that will make snorkeling a photographic safari and lead up to advanced housings and strobes that are sure to make your advanced digital SLR worthy of a Jules Vern photo album.

Making sure you’ve chosen all the right camera gear for your dive is of key importance to getting the most out of your underwater photographic journey. Special emphasis will also be placed on lighting and technique as well as tips and tricks that could take years of experience to discover on your own. Larry is famous for his underwater images and sought after for his extensive knowledge in this special photography niche. Spend an afternoon at the Event Space and feel confident to go under and start shooting the wetter part of the planet!
