Specialty courses allow you to hone your diving skills in areas that you find interesting.
We are seeing more and more divers using GoPro & similar video action cameras. However, we see very little finished productions from these hours of “filming” underwater. I believe it is due to three primary reasons:
- Most divers don’t know how to find the best angles for good footage
- Most divers don’t understand lighting
- Most divers don’t know how to edit video as necessary to produce an interesting short feature
There is little doubt that video is the best way to share the sights, sounds, motion and dynamics of the underwater world. If you want to get the best clips and also learn to edit your scuba diving stories to share with friends through Facebook, YouTube and other social media, then the PADI Underwater Videographer Specialty course is for you.
You will learn to create underwater videos that are interesting, entertaining and worth watching again and again.
Our course is offers you just a bit more by introducing you to Adobe Premier Elements, our favorite video editing software.
