Workshop - Underwater Photography

Presented by Paul Lenharr and Ryan DeGruy

Paul Lenharr and Ryan DeGruy both started with their photography "topside" many years before taking their passion for it underwater. While very comfortable shooting above the water, the challenges of underwater photography brought an entirely new experience to their portfolio. While extremely challenging, underwater photography allows them to join the love of photography with the extremely fun sport of diving.

Paul and Ryan will cover a multitude of underwater environments ranging from U-Boats in the Atlantic, colorful reefs in the Bahamas, to underwater cave systems in Florida. Topics covered will include: Ambient light shooting, wide angle, macro, and using strobes.

Don't miss this fun and informative talk about the challenging and rewarding sport of underwater photography.
