19th - 27th March 2022 - Sudan PHOTOTRIP

SUDAN - deep south PHOTOTRIP. We will visit the best spots in the deep south, depending on sea and wind conditions of course, and hopefully see a lot of sharks and amazing reefs on board of the OMNEIA SPIRIT.

The workshop leader Tobias Friedrich will alternately accompany the participants during the dives in order to be able to give suggestions during and after the dive. Between the dives, Tobias is available for questions and suggestions. In the evenings there can be a picture discussion with all participants, where one photos per person is assessed and processed. In addition, general techniques of underwater photography are discussed, which are based on the wishes of the participants and can include the following topics:

Possible topics are:

- Basic underwater photography rules

- Using strobes underwater

- Camera settings

- How many strobes do I need?

- Finding the right perspectives

- How to make a nice light on corals

- Creative lighting in wrecks

- Split shots

- Whitebalance setup for ambiance shots and wrecks

- Correct setup and communication with models

- Choosing the right images and workflows

- Postproduction with Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop

Each participant is addressed individually so that the skills can be guaranteed to improve. A DSLR or very good camera is not absolutely necessary for participation. Equipment can be borrowed after consultation. Compact camera owners, partners and non-photographers are also welcome, of course.

PHOTOTRIPS are not as intense as PHOTOWORKSHOPS but still Tobias Friedrich will be available for questions and tipps on demand.

Minimum workshops participants: 5.
