BOUTIQUE PROGRAM: What Lies Beneath: An Underwater Photography Exploration LIMITED
Limited Capacity seats available

Dive into the world of underwater photography with Elizabeth Blank. Utilizing the beautiful heated outdoor Del Mar pool located on the grounds of Laguna Cliffs Marriott, Elizabeth will discuss in detail her underwater photography process. Hear all about the specific gear that she uses to create underwater images as well as the gear she uses to optimize her personal endurance under the water. She will review how she begins each session, from dialing in her manual settings to assembling everything she needs before diving in. She'll cover the different lighting scenarios you might encounter under and around the water and will show you how to find the best light in the pool and place your subjects to create beautiful images. Finally, you'll see all of these pieces come together as you watch Elizabeth in action photographing two different subjects. Students are welcome (and encouraged!) to enter the pool to photograph the models as well. Bring your underwater gear if you have it (whether it's the latest-and-greatest underwater housing or just your iPhone in a waterproof case) and join Elizabeth in the pool to photograph the models, or stay dry and observe the session poolside if you prefer.

Learning Objectives:

- Learn about current underwater cameras on the market and the gear needed to succeed
- Learn how a housing unit is assembled to ensure you keep your gear safe and prevent water damage
- Learn how to identify the best light available within the pool and how to guide your subjects towards the best light
- Understand how to prepare your body to ensure stabilization once under the water
