I did the March 2019 Palau trip with Ran Mor and could not have been happier. I cannot say enough good things about Ran and his company. Really, words do not do him justice, you have to experience it first hand and go on one of his trips!
Ran is a consummate professional, I would highly recommend any of his trips for any standard of photographer. The recent trip had first time compact users all the way up to professional level. Ran managed to make everything clear and concise, equipment knowledge was superb and his training is pitch perfect
What is this course all about?
The first day includes an in-depth theory lesson, in which you will learn about proper camera settings, underwater lighting, filters, lenses, shooting techniques, and more.
We will dive twice from the shore, with one dive dedicated for wide-angle shots and the 2nd dive for macro photography, where you can practice everything you’ve learned.
We will end the day with a lesson about composition and marine life behavior.
The second day includes 2 dives from a boat on one of the beautiful dive sites on the western side of Cozumel. On these dives you can practice wide-angle and macro photography, with the help of your instructor who will be at your side at all times, giving tips, correcting your lighting and settings as needed and making sure you spot the coolest subjects.
After we return to the shop, we will discuss post-processing and edit the photos from the last couple of days.
