Underwater Shooting Experience

Learn to photograph underwater alongside mermaids in this on-location workshop and shooting experience. We will cover the best ways to protect your camera, ensure our models safety and learn the best tips and techniques for getting fantastic underwater images before we jump into the pool and shoot some images with professional models. The location is 3700 Scenic Overlook Drive, Austin, TX 78734. The class will not meet in store. 

A one hour classroom session will start the day. We will cover equipment for getting your camera under the surface, the best lenses and focus modes to use while underwater and then give a breakdown on how to safely produce your own shoots.

The four hour shooting experience will take place at a local pool with mermaid models. The photographers will be getting wet as well so please be able to hold your breath and be able to swim a few feet. Shooting will repeatedly rotate through each photographer fairly quickly so that we can all stay fresh and make great exposures.

• Underwater Model Safety
• Underwater Camera Safety
• Camera Settings for Underwater (White Balance, Contrast, Exposure)
