Tonight’s Program 

Becca Boring, Operations Manager Backscatter

12 tips for new wreck photographer’s
1.     Having the right gear -take what works best for you. 
2.     Don’t take what you don’t need 
3.     Focus on your fins (when shooting wide angle, you’ll have the same focus length for all your shots)
4.     Neutral bouncy for camera -add floats save your arms
5.     Protect your dome … add dome covers (wet and dry) for protection -most damage happens on the boat  
6.     Strobes -shooting in manual try shooting just to the right of 0.  Read your histogram!!!
7.     Review your images while in the water
8.     Shoot the same thing over & over
9.     Use your arms -reach out & take the photo from different angles/lengths/move the camera around
10.  Make use of other divers -use their lights/use them for scale/be creative -a photographed diver looks better with their legs together
11.  Don’t be afraid to edit your images.  Helpful resources:

a.     Go Ask Erin (Erin Quigley from Backscatter) -YouTube channel
b.     Creative Workflow in Lightroom -publication
c.      Lightroom Coffee Break -YouTube channel

12.  Embrace your mistakes -everyone makes them!
