SUPER MACRO UNDERWATER PHOTOGRAPHY

WORKSHOP

Super Macro photography is about taking amazing images of anything you can fill your frame with at greater than 1:1 up to 1:5 or more. Unlike standard Macro photography Super Macro requires a greater investment in equipment  to capture what standard Macro can not. This special kind of photography will  challenge you like no other. The extra equipment and dealing with the smallest Depth of Field (DOF) Currents, surge and even the most calmest conditions will tax you. But if you can overcome them you will capture amazing images of the most intricate details of any critter you shoot. Plus you will capture images of one thing only to find out later while looking at the image on the big screen other critters you were unable to see through your lens
