Light painting workshop - February 22 & 24
Images like the ones on this page are composite images, or what’s sometimes referred to as ‘light painting.’ It’s a very simple technique that can result in stunning nighttime images underwater.
Divetech is offering a light painting workshop during the third week of February. This workshop will consist of an introduction to the technique lecture, followed by a Kittiwake night dive, and then a second lecture on how to create the composite.
5:00 PM - A short lecture, and instructions on how to capture your images
6:30 PM - A night dive on the USS Kittiwake
6:00 PM - A lecture on post-processing techniques and assembling your composite image
Interested participants will need to have:
An underwater camera that features an built-in interval timer, or
An underwater camera that has full manual control and a dive buddy
(Most Nikon’s have this feature, some Canon’s do.)
You will also need:
A tripod you don’t mind getting wet. Gorillapods work very well.
A video light
Laptop, and photo editing software
Divetech has limited rentals available for camera systems, tripods and video lights. Please contact us for information.
