PADI Digital Underwater Photographer

So, you are swimming along a beautiful shallow coral reef and you spot an amazing colorful nudibranch! 
The scenery: Sandy bottom which is easily stirred up but you hover motionless and use your fins to stay in place.

You set your camera white balance and aim to take the shoot of the nudi. There are some algae disturbing the picture so you rotate and lower the camera in order to get the blue water background instead. You compose and take your shoot! 

After looking at the preview you notice that the shoot is all too bright. Hmmph! Well a quick adjustment and another line up for a second shot and you nailed it! Perfect shoot to show friends and family.

Conclusion: With proper positioning, camera handling and 
settings all come together you get great results!

Want to get that perfect picture? Enroll in the PADI Digital Underwater Photographer Specialty!
