Underwater Videographer

Other than taking someone diving, there's only one way to show someone the sounds, motion and dynamics of the underwater world. It's underwater videography –motion imaging that allows you to share and document your underwater adventures. The PADI Underwater Videographer Specialty course shows you how to create videos that are interesting, entertaining and worth watching again and again. The PADI Underwater Videographer Specialty course introduces you to underwater video equipment and videography fundamentals, such as exposure, focus, shot types, moves, story line and shot sequencing. It takes you through the post-dive editing process where you take your raw footage and create an underwater masterpiece. By the time you complete the course, you'll have gone through the entire basic video production process. We will give you an overview about equipment selection and maintenance. You will learn videography techniques of story planning, organization and shot sequencing. You will learn basic video editing.
