Roatan Underwater Imaging Workshop 2014 - Trip Report

ROATAN UNDERWATER IMAGING WORKSHOP

Jim Decker shared his gear expertise with those needing their camera system set-up, then taught a seminar on shooting techniques. While the visibility was limited in the beginning of the trip forcing the group to focus on macro photography, it had cleared up toward the end of the week enabling the group to practice their wide angle shooting techniques. Erin Quigley provided the group the answers and tools via her Adobe Lightroom Certified Pro knowledge for importing, organizing, editing and sharing their photos and video. Whether working one-on-one or in small groups, Jim and Erin shared their techniques for shooting better images and editing them in post.







WHY TRAVEL WITH BACKSCATTER?

Backscatter's owner, Berkley White, has fostered relationships with owners of the most highly regarded live-aboards and land-based dive resorts over the last 20 years. Weather and dive conditions permitting, the travel itineraries and dive site selection will always give you the best possible photographic opportunities for the region. Traveling with a Backscatter Pro will give you direct access to their knowledge of techniques for better shooting, experience to make in-the-field repairs that are sometimes necessary, spare camera systems and parts to keep you shooting for the entire trip and even workshops to learn post processing image editing.



Backscatter offers two types of trips: workshops and expeditions. Workshops are learning trips where there is great diving, but the focus is honing your skills (photography, videography, post processing and editing). All diving and shooting skill levels are welcomed for our underwater photography workshops. Expeditions focus on diving and shooting in some of the planet's most sought after locales. Advanced divers and shooters are best suited to these expeditions. Join us for an upcoming workshop or expedition! We hope to see you under the waves!
