Fluorescence Photography Course

Fluorescence Photography Course

Many underwater photographers are amazed by the visual spectacle of fluo diving and immediately ask if they can bring their camera. In order to capture the fluorescence you need specialized excitation filters for your external strobe as well as a barrier filter for your camera lens.

 

In collaboration with professional photographer Alex Tyrrell from Dive 4 Photo’s, we are now able to offer a 3 day Fluo Photography course. During this course you will cover the following topics with Alex :

The course starts with an orientation dive into the wonderfull world of marine fluorescence. This dive is without a camera and only to enjoy the amazing experience firsthand, get used to the equipment and procedures and to get some ideas for subjects. The second and third dive you will be focussing on capturing the fluorescent corals and marine creatures and improving your skills during the course.
