Padi Underwater Digital Imaging

UW Digital PhotographyDigital has taken the underwater photography world by storm. Get in on the action with the Digital Underwater Photographer Specialty course. You can quickly and easily capture the underwater world with your camera and on your computer.

During the Digital Underwater Photographer course, you learn to use the PADI SEA (Shoot, Examine and Adjust) method, which takes full advantage of digital technology. The result is good underwater photos faster than you may imagine. You not only learn how to take good photos, but how to share them with your friends via email or printing, optimizing your work with your computer, storage and more. Take only pictures, leave only bubbles... One of the most popular specialties available, photography can provide you with memorable snapshots and stunning photos to impress your friends. Either way, this course will introduce you to one of the most interesting ways to expand your diving.
