From time to time, experienced HUPS photographers will share their knowledge with members of the club on topics related to underwater photography, image management, or the improvement of diving skills that are important to underwater photography. Sometimes this involves getting better at your photographic skills on the land as well. Being a better photographer makes you an even better underwater photographer.
This page provides information on upcoming workshops, round table discussions or field trips as well as those held in the past. Members are encouraged to suggest new workshop topics or to request that past workshops be repeated by contacting the Workshop Chairman or posting ideas to the forum.

Join us April 27 from 1-3 PM at Bayland Community Center 6400 Bissonnet Street Houston, TX for a free workshop. This two hour workshop has been designed to help both the new and experienced photographer. David, with the help of Mr Potatohead, will touch on many subjects to help you get started in underwater photography and carry through to creating the best images possible. We will discuss the greatest challenges of underwater photography and how they can be conquered. We will explore how to get the sharpest, best exposed images possible with your camera.
Attendees will learn how to balance strobe exposures with ambient light blue water backgrounds. In addition to technical topics we will cover subject selection and how to decide what to shoot based on dive conditions. The workshop will be full of great tips David has gathered from his 20 plus years of underwater photography.
