UNDERWATER CAMERA & VIDEO REVIEWS
Five More Great Underwater Images & How We Shot Them [Recorded LIVE] May 12, 2020
Join Robin Dodd and Backscatter CEO Jim Decker as they take a deep dive into underwater photography. Jim will use five images to demonstrate how technique, camera settings, equipment and animal behavior all have to come together to create that perfect shot. The images will be from compact, mirrorless, and DSLR cameras and will include both wide angle and macro shots. There will be something for every underwater shooter in this session! A live Q&A will follow the images. Topic Timecode Links
