Workshop Underwater Photography

On the 28 and 29 of November we will have a two-day Workshop on Underwater Photography with Nuno Vasco Rodrigues


Nuno is one of Portugal’s leading underwater conservation photographers with several winning awards, and with his work displayed in magazines such as National Geographic Portugal. 
The workshop is intended for those who would like to learn the basics on underwater photography, and to improve your underwater photographic skills. Having good pictures is after all important for scientific divulgation. The workshop includes both a theoretical and practical part. On the first day we have theory in the morning and a dryland practical session in the afternoon. The second day includes a wet session (5 m deep swimming pool). You will learn to manually adjust certain camera settings, such as aperture and shutter speed, and how to use these accordingly.
