In the tropical waters of Ko Lanta there are a few standard basic camera settings which the Liquid Lense professional photographers almost always use, and teach students.
Our Liquid Lense professional underwater photographers are frequently asked about the process they employ out on the boats each day for storing, editing, showing and selling the photos they take of you and the wonderful things you see. So in our efforts to de-mystify here is our Pro Underwater Photographer Daily Work Flow!
Firstly, our Liquid Lense photographers have all chosen to install and use Adobe Lightroom as their editing software, and work on a combination of PC’s and Macs. Whilst some of the team also have Adobe Photoshop, for speed and ease on a daily basis, and for making quick edits (such as removing backscatter) their daily platform is Lightroom.
What exactly is backscatter? Backscatter occurs when the camera’s flash highlights suspended particles within the water column between the subject and cameras lens…
How many times have you taken pictures underwater, thinking that the results are going to be amazing, only to be disappointed when reviewing them at the end of the day?
This is a very common problem and is because, compared to land photography, underwater photography is a whole different kettle of fish!
Liquid Lense have developed a range of Tips and Tricks to help underwater photographers and underwater videographers.
At Liquid Lense, we understand that not everyone wants or needs their hands held while learning new skills, some like to just dive straight in with a few pointers and see how they get on.
With this in mind, Liquid Lense now offers an inexpensive, quick and easy Tips & Tricks Session that can get you started on the right track, without too much time spent studying the manual!
Knowing some of the Basics of Composition is a fundamental requirement in producing quality images. Composition is one of the most important aspects of an image and can make or break the picture you are making, yet for some reason many people don’t pay much attention to composition when shooting underwater photography. This may be due to the fact there are so many other things to think about: buoyancy, air consumption, bottom time etc.
