Welcome to the exciting world of underwater
Nothing has changed photography so much
in the last decade more than the
introduction of digital photography. Digital
cameras use electronics and computing
techniques to produce images instead of film
and chemicals. Digital photography has made
taking good photographs above and below the
surface easier than ever.
Whether you are new to digital photography
or an experienced shooter, you will benefit
from classes designed to meet your needs.
Editing and Managing your Photos in Lightroom
Learn how to import your photos into your computer, catalog, edit, print and export your photographs to your favorite social media site, website or share with your friend via email.
In this class we will discuss workflows for different situations “Digital Asset Management” (DAM). A good digital workflow is the most efficient way to get the most from your photographs. We will be using Adobe Lightroom to create a digital workflow.

The new, revolutionary mirrorless camera, the award-winning OM-D E-M5, has an exceptionally light and compact body.
The OM-D is a groundbreaking, new digital interchangeable lens camera perfect for people who want to take part, create, and share.
The OM-D's new electronic viewfinder (EVF), with 120 fps refresh rate, features a high-resolution 1.44-million dot LCD, 100% field-of-view coverage, and 1.15x maximum magnification.
Dust-proof & Splash-proof Construction
Multiple ring-shaped seals protect the camera from sand, dust, rain, and water spray, making it ideal for all kinds of outdoor shooting.
Two full size control dials in concert with dedicated function buttons allow fast setting changes on the fly. Adjust highlight and shadow, exposure, white balance, aspect ratio and more and preview the results instantly in the EVF or on the tilting 3” OLED touch screen.
All New Sensor
A new 16-megapixel Live MOS image sensor for rich tonal expression, increased dynamic range and support for a maximum 25,600 maximum ISO.
5-Axis Image Stabilization
The E-M5 is equipped with the world's first 5-axis image stabilization system, and can compensate for vertical, horizontal, and rotational camera shake that conventional 2-axis systems of the past have been unable to handle. Built into the camera body to ensure effective stabilization with all lenses, its unique 5-axis design makes it particularly effective when taking high-magnification telephoto shots, macro close-ups, and long exposures.
The world's fastest AF system, FAST AF, has been made even faster and more accurate on the E-M5. Improved new 3D Tracking AF assures you won't miss the moment even when subjects move toward or away from you, and the new high-sensitivity image sensor ensures superior AF performance even in dim light.
9 fps High-Speed Sequential Shooting
Thanks to the new 16-megapixel Live MOS image sensor's high-speed read-out performance, the E-M5 offers maximum sequential shooting at 9 fps, making it easy to capture sports action or fast-moving subjects such as pets, kids and wildlife. In addition, a compact new high-speed shutter mechanism enables the E-M5 to offer this performance without compromising the handling advantages of a light and compact body.
All classes are run exclusively with Olympus photography gear.
