Underwater videography & photography
A movie is not just raw footage and a photo needs to pass through a dark room, even if it is a digital one. Editing and image correcting is quite time-consuming and is in fact the biggest part of making an underwater video or photo. Empowered with the right software, the know-how and the experience we can handle anything: colour adjustments, stabilisation, backscatter removal, removal of entire objects, stacking multiple photos... and more. Tell us what you need and we will work it out!
Why should I rather take the online course than enrolling into a physical in-house course to master the skills of underwater videography?
Learning to handle an underwater camera means you need to understand the dynamics and techniques necessary to use that camera. You learn these theoretical skills in a classroom or from the comfort of your home. And that is exactly what we offer in our Marine Wildlife Videography course; to learn the techniques you need to be able to make decent underwater footage while you are still at home, so you don’t have to waste your time in a classroom while on a holiday. Knowing what settings to use to film underwater is a skill that must be learned beforehand rather than while you are under water. It is no secret that when enrolling in a normal in-house underwater videography course you will spend time in a classroom. With our Marine Wildlife Videography course you can now master all the topics of this underwater video course before entering the water and by doing so you will enter your favourite dive spot on the very first day of your holiday well prepared. You will save therefor valuable time, a lot of money and you will have more time to dive during that well earned scuba vacation.
Can I use an action camera (for example a GoPro or a Paralenz Vaquita) or a mobile phone?
Yes, provided that your camera or phone is waterproof for recreational scuba diving depths (a minimum rating of 40m/130ft) or has a compatible waterproof housing to protect your device. The more options your housing has the better and the easier it will be to handle the camera, the action camera or smartphone.
Once I have finished my underwater online course how do I know if I apply the techniques of the in the Marine Wildlife Videography course well?
After you have watched and understood our tutorial videos it is time to bring your gained knowledge into practice. Dive, film, edit, make short clips and learn from your mistakes. Our course includes also coaching. This means that our underwater videography course includes a review by Olivier Van den Broeck, our award-winning marine videographer! When you buy our course you will get the opportunity to send us 3 different underwater videos from your own making and Olivier will give provide his personal feedback. This feedback is a crucial part in the journey of becoming a successful Marine Wildlife Videographer.
What camera should I have to make underwater films and videos?
Make sure that your camera is filming in full HD, meaning 1080 by 1920 pixels. If your camera films in a higher definition such as 4 K it will make the editing process easier as you will be able to crop or zoom in without loosing quality. You will also need to check that there is a waterproof housing available that is rated for recreational scuba diving depths (a minimum rating of 40m/130ft). This topic is fully covered in our underwater videography course.
