The workshop is FREE to all guests of Scuba Club Cozumel this week. The rest of you will be able to watch from the SCUBA CLUB WEBCAM!
No camera is too big or too small! You'll also learn all about how to improve your underwater photography by shooting better and improving on what you've captured by using Adobe Photoshop.
Your instructor and host is Bonnie Pelnar, author of "The Digital Workflow for Underwater Photographers", part of a series of courses available at www.TheUnderwaterPhotographer.com. Bonnie has made 30 trips to Cozumel and she knows where and how to find the best Cozumel has to offer and can show you how to capture it with your camera.
In addition to the presentations, slide shows and seminars, Bonnie will be available to dive with you each day. This year we will set up a special photographer's boat, so if you wish to dive with the rest of the shooters, you are welcome to come along.
INON America has join in the fun and will be providing a variety of INON strobes and lenses that will be available for your use during this workshop. This year H2O Photo Pros will also be joining us and will be offering demo cameras from Olympus and Light & Motion.
Please contact Bonnie well ahead of time so we can be sure to bring along the correct adapters for your housing! This is another great opportunity to try new products and accessories before buying! With the addition of an external strobe to your digital housing, you'll get GREAT SHOTS!
On August 16th there will be a full moon over Cozumel!! We'll be staying on for a couple of extra days to do a legendary full moon night dive on Saturday, followed by an even more legendary full moon Cozumel margarita party.

This was my first time staying on the island and I just loved it. The diving conditions and the weather was awesome. Meet a lot of new friends and didn't want to come home last night. Learned a lot from the workshop and can already see a big improvement in my pictures even though I had trouble with my Oly Zoom during most of the diving. It's going to be hard getting into the Cold Pacific after diving in the warm water of Coz. Loved SCC and all the staff was awesome.
This is the 5th workshop we've done at SCC and the best ever! The weather was PERFECT, the water as blue as blue can be, the diving pristine, and the people better than all of this. We had a huge stash of great prized for contest winners and had over 60 entries. We're scheduling a date for our next workshop in late Feb or early March, sometime just before or after Carnival so you can stay an extra couple of days for the biggest party of the year!
Troy and myself, (Scott), had a ball and can't wait to come back! What a great group of fun folks and lot's of talented people. We felt we learned a lot and met many new friends. Keep us posted about future trips, we will try to attend the ones that do not interfer with work and of course that ugly word, Money... thank you Bonnie and thanks to all that attended, Great Times. Scott and Troy
Going to do our best to attend. How many of you have taken this workshop before? Thinking about a second strobe, right now I have on inon, how do you feel about the need of a second strobe and the benefits of a second strobe..thanks, scott
