Digital Master Class, Key Largo, June 2008

We had two really fantastic photo courses here in Key Largo this month.  Not only did we have the wonderful in-water opportunities we've come to expect here in my hometown during the summer (massive fish populations, thanks to the Sanctuary Preservation Areas of the Key Largo National Marine Sanctuary, historical shipwrecks, special permission to dive the Aquarius Habitat, and warm/clear water), we also enjoyed Photoshop education from one of the very best, Eddie Tapp.  See

Eddie got certified while he was here for the Digital Master class, and now has an even better sense of the challenges we face as underwater photographers.  His solutions for backscatter removal alone were brilliant!

Thanks to Ocean Divers for providing the dive services, and Aquarius Habitat for allowing our controlled visitation to their underwater research facility.  See 

Next year's class schedule is now available at  Here's a few of my shots representative of what we saw during the week:

The Master Class was well worth the time and money and exceeded my expectations.
and what a great bunch of interesting, fun and intelligent people!
I look forward to additional classes.

Hi Steve, Looks like a lot of fun! Really sorry I missed the class this year. I always get so much out of it and seeing all my diving & photographer buddies. Looking forward to Bonaire in January.
