This Photo program is a new addition to all Blue Kirio Tours and an original course that is unlike any other being presently conducted on other Scuba trips, either liveaboard or landbased. This program is designed to challenge and improve each participants photo skills and not a computer based course. My philosophy is to get it right when you photography the subject and avoid spending countless hours editing each photo to improve it. This course is designed to provide each photographer with immediate feedback and broaden their overall shooting skills. The workshop and contest runs over a 7 day period where each day I set an assignment for the category to photograph that day and at the end of the day each participant downloads their contest submission to me. From there it is judged and graded on a 1-5 scale based on several separate categories. The top 3 point winners for the trip receive cash off their next Blue Kirio tour.For the workshop and teaching part of the course, I do a daily group review/showing of everyone photos and use that session (Usually after lunch) as an opportunity to critic and teach advanced photo techniques and provide tips and answer questions in a group setting.I am also always available throughout the trip to review and critic all photographers images. So come aboard, shoot some great shots, learn some new U/W Photo techniques and maybe win a discount on your next dive tour.
