The PADI Underwater Videographer Specialty course shows you how to create videos that are interesting, entertaining and worth watching again and again. You’ll learn all you need to know about selecting, maintaining and caring for your underwater video equipment. Afterwards you’ll head out for some first-hand experience in videography fundamentals, including exposure, focusing and shot sequencing techniques. Then you’ll be guided through the post dive editing process, turning your raw footage into a production masterpiece for all to see.
The purpose of the PADI Underwater Videographer Specialty Course is to familiarize the student with basic underwater video hardware, use, maintenance and diving techniques.
