SHINE (underwater) - Editing videos for underwater photography

This is your chance to make your underwater images taken with either a point and shoot camera or with your professional gear really shine! Laura Morita will be showing how she edits her amazing underwater images both in Lightroom (LR5) and Photoshop (CS6). She will show both color and black and white edits and will be editing images shot both in RAW with her Canon 5DMkIII in underwater housing, as well as images shot with simple underwater point and shoots.  She’ll talk about how she shoots underwater as well as how she gets her amazing color and compelling black and whites.

Are you tired of knowing your underwater images have potential, but have no idea how to unleash that awesome? Laura can help you!

What to Expect:

Silent Seats include 3 hours of videos available to you for you to watch on your own time with 30 day access to the video library. You heard me right: THIRTY day access to underwater editing videos to review at your own speed, on your own time.

Watch Laura edit her images from start to finish and hear her thought process on why she does what she does. You’ll learn not only how to edit underwater images but learn about many of the editing tools in Lightroom and Photoshop. Learn how to edit without the use of actions or presets! And also learn how to make your OWN actions and presets to streamline your editing!

Learn what she looks for when shooting underwater. Laura shoots only natural light in outdoor pools. She’ll tell you what gear she uses, what settings, and other details of her shooting.

Active Seats include: three hours of underwater editing videos PLUS a 2 hour webinar, two weeks after having access to the videos, where you can ask questions, and Laura will edit more underwater images LIVE for you, including a sampling of images submitted from YOU, the participant! That extra 2 hour webinar will then be added to the video library for 2 more weeks (only for active seat participants)!
