This class is designed to help photographers with point & shoot underwater cameras, to the more sophisticated DSLR cameras.  Since we want to maximize our diving time, all lectures will be held at 4:30 in the afternoon and additional lab time in the evenings in the roomy air-conditioned classroom.  The 2023 class will take a new direction and address the problems encountered when shooting and editing, by lecturing utilizing images submitted by the students.  Everyone should bring a thumb drive to load shooting problems for the afternoon session, and editing problems they are having for the evening sessions.  We will also be doing image critiques in the evening. You can also bring images from previous dives that you would like to discuss with the Drafahls.  Sue will be available for help underwater with your camera during the dives, and Jack will be in the classroom each day for consultation on shooting or editing problems encountered throughout the week. 

The 8 day/7 night hotel package includes unlimited shore diving, tanks, weights, weight belts, accommodation in your choice of a a variety of diffierent accomodations, daily buffet breakfast, airport transfers, welcome drink, manager’s rum punch party, all service charges and taxes and photo class. You can add boat dives to your shore-diving package or Nitrox for the week.  The price does NOT INCLUDE AIRFARE or gratuity.
