Specialty of the month for April 2009; Digital Underwater Photography
This specialty make my world go faster! Although I use fairly simple almost kinda aim and shoot cameras, first a Canon IXY 80 and now a Canon IXUS 85 15. The latter, including an underwater housing can be had for a mere 13.500,-THB at Pantip Plaza in Bangkok.
Back to this exciting Specialty though, digital has taken the underwater photography world by storm, including myself! It's a great way to show friends and relatives how beautiful the underwater is. By taking the Digital Underwater Photography specialty course you’ll soon be making pictures like the pros. And you’ll also learn to process your photos on the computer.
The course is a good introduction on how to get started with a digital camera underwater and can be adjusted to the knowledge level you're at.
Over the years, during my IDC's , I've had two great photographers in my course, one is Imp, a true legend from Malaysia, check out his site for some exciting pix and the other is Richard from the Netherlands who can take a mean picture.
