The first day includes an in-depth theory lesson, in which you will learn about proper camera settings, underwater lighting, filters, lenses, shooting techniques and more.

We will dive twice from the shore, with one dive dedicated for wide angle shots and the 2nd dive for macro photography, where you can practice everything you’ve learned.

We will end the day with a lesson about composition and marine life behavior.

The second day includes 2 dives from a boat on one of the beautiful dive sites on the western side of Cozumel. On these dives you can practice wide angle and macro photography, with the help of your instructor who will be at your side at all times, giving tips, correcting your lighting and settings as needed and making sure you spot the coolest subjects.

After we return to the shop, we will discuss post processing and edit the photos from the last couple of days.
