Underwater Digital Photography
The PADI Underwater Digital Photography program is a two-part introduction to digital underwater photography, centred around point-and-shoot digital cameras. It may be split into two certifications to suit your availability, Level One and Level Two, or be conducted as a continuous course, resulting in a Level Two certification.
Whether you’re a snorkeler, certified diver, or a diver in training, aged 10 or older, you can develop the knowledge, skills, and practical techniques necessary to take stunning underwater photos with a digital camera, even on your first photo dive! Throughout, you’ll receive advice on camera set up and care, and how to get the most from the specific camera you’ll be using on the dives.
