Roatan Underwater Photo Fest with Raak Bottom Imaging

Turquoise Bay Dive & Beach Resort, Roatan, Bay Islands of Honduras

 

Next Trip: September 23-30, 2017

Join Raak Bottom Imaging at the Roatan Underwater Photo Festival for a week full of experience and adventure. At the Roatan Underwater Photo Festival, you’ll learn how to get the best underwater photos possible; not just for the week, but for your entire diving life.

What is the Roatan Underwater Photo Festival?

At the Roatan Underwater Photo Festival we will spend this week full of experiences and adventure! We will show you how to get the best underwater photos possible; not just for the week, but for your entire diving life. You will have the chance to experiment with your camera to see what works for you and what does not. Every day we will have a seminar where we’ll explore both Point & Shoot and SLR camera opportunities and talk about what seems to work best with both type of cameras. Each day will build on what you learned the day before and we’ll be in the water a lot to practice and experiment. Most importantly, we’ll us a “share to learn” technique. We’ll look at photos that have been shot during the day, not to criticize, but to learn. As a group we will talk about what the sample photos do well and what we might do to alter the shots. By sharing our ideas, we all learn more quickly and perhaps find different approaches that we would never have discovered individually. This is not a photo contest or shootout. Seminars would be conducted every evening and the hosts/photo pros will be diving with the participants on every dive. Afternoon (optional) dives will include a pro on the boat and a pro available on land to answer questions for those who chose not to dive.
