What Will You Learn in a Beginner Underwater Video Course?

You’ll learn everything you need to know to get started with underwater videography.

  • Set up your equipment for optimal performance and safe underwater use (settings, white balance, log modes…)
  • How to use your camera effectively underwater (Buoyancy, how to approach animals…)
  • Rule of composition to make your subject shine
  • Light positioning to take full advantage of your camera (don’t forget we lose a lot of light underwater)
  • How to edit your footage to create professional-quality videos

What to expect with our Underwater Video Course?

A video course is a training program that teaches the basics of filming underwater videos. This course is designed for individuals who are interested in capturing the beauty of the underwater world and sharing it with others. The course covers topics such as camera selection, lighting, composition, and editing.

  • The first step in taking a beginner underwater video course is to select the right gear. A waterproof camera is essential for capturing high-quality footage. There are many options available, including waterproof action cameras, point-and-shoot, mirrorless cameras, and video cameras. The choice of camera depends on whether you want to pursue underwater videography as a hobby or professionally. If you want to get your equipment before the course, don’t hesitate to contact us via WhatsApp.
  • Once you have the right gear, it’s time to learn how to use it. A beginner underwater video course will teach you how to set up your camera, adjust your settings, and capture stunning footage. You’ll learn about lighting techniques and how to compose your shots to create visually appealing videos.
  • After you’ve captured your footage, you’ll need to edit it. A beginner underwater video course will teach you how to use editing software to create professional-looking videos. We like to use Davinci Resolve because it’s great and also free!  You’ll learn how to add music, transitions, color grade, and special effects to your videos.

In conclusion, a beginner underwater video course is an excellent way to learn how to capture the beauty of the underwater world. Whether you’re interested in pursuing underwater videography as a hobby or professionally, this course will provide you with the skills and knowledge you need to get started.

My wife did a Underwater photo course with Jerome. All was very well organized in a very relaxed way and the results were incredible. Before photos were average but after 1 full day of training the quality and level of interest in her Makro photos improved to a absolute "I love to see her photos level. After being back in Bali I told her to do another training and it was worth it as well. Highly recommended !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Très belle expérience mémorable avec Jérôme et son équipe. Beaucoup de partage et de générosité ! Jérôme a été adorable et professionnel. Passionné, à l'écoute, pédagogue, réactif, il s'applique à personnaliser la théorie et la pratique selon les demandes et besoins, et transmet copieusement son savoir et ses techniques (et même des photos bonus en plus =)). Le tout dans une ambiance parfaite. Je conseille de faire plusieurs jours à ses côtés afin de pouvoir pleinement profiter de l'apprentissage et parvenir à une bonne maîtrise durable pour votre pratique, photo comme vidéo. Merci pour tous ces moments et a très vite ! Plouf ! Maria

J'ai passé 5 jours avec Jérôme pour effectuer un stage de photographie sous-marine... et quelle rencontre ! Quelle expérience ! Jérôme est très pédagogue, avec une approche graduelle adaptée pour un débutant en prises de vues sous-marines comme moi. Il m'a transmis les fondamentaux pour obtenir des clichés optimaux. J'ai été étonné de ma progression rapide effectuée à ses côtés. J'ai été très content des résultats obtenus ! Alors, que vous soyez débutant ou pas en photo/vidéo subaquatique, foncez chez Plouf Diving avec Jérôme pour vous former !
