Karen is a very friendly and professional instructor, who is popular with our divers and students alike. Karen has been instructing with us at elite diving since Summer 2011.
Previously, she worked as an underwater photographer. This comes in very handy when Karen teaches a digital underwater photography course as she has far more experience and knowledge of the subject than most instructors.
A modest lady, she wouldn't say that herself, but we can.
We can see the immediate improvement of the photos of her students, and so can they.
If you'd like to improve your photography skills, just drop us a line and book a day course with Karen.
Wide-Angle. Schooling Indian mackerel. Not easy to keep in focus.
Many divers like taking photos of nudibranch but not many get the photo they are looking for. Karen will show you her secret.
Wide-angle. A full face photo of a young Millie the Green Turtle on Yolanda Reef.
Twin Eagles. How do you keep the camera steady for the shot?
One of the most popular questions Karen gets asked, is, what are the best underwater camera settings divers should use for macro or Wide-angle underwater photography, on a digital camera?
Karen says "There is no best setting for all shots",
Karen will give you an idea of what settings you can start with, and how to adjust them underwater.
"You don't need a top of the range camera to take good photos"
Karen uses Cannon Ixus 90 with fish eye lens or Cannon G9. What ever compact camera you have, she'll show you how to use it better.
Even if you've done an underwater photography course previously, you'll still be able to learn more from Karen and be further satisfied with the photos your taking.
