Fiji - Wide Angle Workshop
|Expedition Dates:||May 12, 2012 - May 22, 2012|
We are pleased to announce a special DPG Expedition workshop to the colorful and rich waters of Fiji. We don't run a lot of workshops on our expeditions, so this is a very special trip, designed specifically to help you hone your wide angle underwater photography skills and portfolio.
Keri Wilk will be providing seminars on different types of wide angle underwater photography techniques and will provide each participant with the one-on-one time necessary to help you improve. This trip is designed for photographers of all levels. Whether you are just starting out or have years of experience and simply want to hone your skills, Keri will help you improve. The colorful reefs of Fiji will provide enough wide angle reefscapes and fish life for even the most discerning photographer.
Our expedition will focus on the most colorful and prolific sites in Central Fiji - the Bligh Waters and the Koro Sea. Due to the nutrient rich currents, the soft corals proliferate here, and visibility is up to 150 feet! Additionally we can expect large schools of bararcudas and jacks, and should also have sharks and mantas on several dives. Although there can be decent currents, these are the perfect conditions for wide angle photography. PS: While the trip is focused on helping you with your wide angle skills, the healthy reefs provide for plenty of macro opportunities as well.
We will also visit the islands and barrier reefs of Namena, Wakaya, and Gau, but since this is a photographer-specific expedition, the itiernary will be dictated by the best possible underwater photography (and video) opportunities. Iconic sites like E-6 and others will surely blow you away.
We will sail aboard the Nai'a - the boat of choice for underwater photographers and filmmakers. She's a fantastic vessel, with spacious cabins and a large camera room, and the Nai'a crew probably has the most experience in these waters and working with underwater photographers & videographers.
