For safety reasons, this workshop is limited to 12 attendees only. Anyone who has tried underwater photography knows that it’s far more challenging than it looks. If photography is an art and a science, then underwater photography is an art, a science and a science. Photographer Cheryl Walsh has spent the past 12 years conquering the science of swimming pool-based underwater fine art portrait photography. Her mastery of the science allows her to express her own unique artistic vision.
This introductory class is an opportunity to spend two days experiencing the special challenges of working in a liquid environment. Cheryl’s goal is to help you begin to break through those challenges so that you can develop your own unique artistic vision.
The class will begin with the hows and whys of photographing underwater. Cheryl will share her knowledge on the technical aspects of underwater photography including: safety, equipment, weights and buoyancy management, backdrops, underwater housings, water clarity, lighting techniques, styling and wardrobe choices, and vetting and working with models.
