Exotic underwater photography made easy

Eco Divers has expanded its diving and is now offering two 3-day photography courses in different locations in North Sulawesi from 3 -9 July, 2004.

Led by award-winning underwater photographer, Steve Smithson, the courses offer a variety of photography techniques in what is arguably one of the best destinations on the planet for combining wall diving and 'muck diving'.

Two seminars, each lasting three days, will take place at Eco Divers, Tasik Ria, Manado with the emphasis on wide-angle techniques and at the newly opened Eco Divers, Kungkungan Bay Resort in the Lembeh Strait, where skills in macro photography can be honed.

They can be taken as stand alone options or booked and completed over a six-day period.

Kungkungan Bay Resort seminars will cover techniques for macro, fish and night photography. The Lembeh Strait is home to some of the most fascinating creatures found anywhere in the world including the pygmy seahorse, mimic octopus and Ambon scorpionfish. Whatever the camera system, photo opportunities abound.

Tasik Ria Resort is perfect for developing photography skills in Bunaken Marine Park where the walls teem with life and are perfect for learning wide-angle techniques. The seminar will cover wide-angle balanced light, ambient light (perfect for wrecks, shallow waters and large creatures) and model photography.

Eco Divers will process slides or download to disc the same day, allowing photographers to improve techniques on a day-to-day basis and learn how to shoot technically-correct photos whether they shoot in film or digital format.

"Anyone can learn how to improve their underwater photography," explains Steve Smithson, "whether a complete beginner or experienced photographer, these seminars will teach you all you need to know to achieve excellent results."
