We’ve run two photography workshops with the Canon Collective so far, aimed at helping Explorers reach their potential behind the lens. These are some of our favourite photos to date!
When we saw the quality of the shots coming out of the Intro to Underwater Photography and Surf Photography workshops (run by the talented Jenn Cooper and Scott Straymk respectively) we couldn’t help but find out a bit more about what the attendees were learning.
Have a scroll through this selection, then head over to the event page, we’ve got four workshops to go!
‘He was at least 100m from shore, so I had to be zoomed in close with the Canon 100m-400m lens. I was using a Canon 80D DSLR. High speed continuous shooting allowed me to capture multi-sequenced action shots.’ – Colleen Kempys
‘It really reinvigorated my photography. I got to know my camera better and how to use it more effectively, the session on lighting in particular was exactly what I needed.’ – Chris Sinclair
‘The Lightroom editing sessions have forever changed how I will refine my photographs. I feel like I need to review every photograph I’ve ever taken!’ – Chris Sinclair
‘There’s absolutely no stability in the water – it’s constantly moving so you need to become really good at treading water to focus on what you are doing. Your body and the housing are buoyant, so staying at depth and remaining level to frame a shot is a challenge. Not only does the water move, but everything underwater moves too!’ – Sel Quintrell
‘A giant cuttlefish in the shallows of Cabbage Tree Bay. The post-processing tips from Jenn, such as modifying the dehaze settings, were really helpful afterwards to give this shot more clarity, sharpness and colour.’ – Paula Lay
‘Although the swell wasn’t much this young lady went out for a paddle at sunset. With the light lowering quickly, we had to adjust our camera settings frequently. Luckily Scott Stramyk was on hand to assist with the best settings.’ – Colleen Kempys
A photo tells a thousand words too
