Digital Master Class - Key Largo 2013

Each summer I teach a one-week underwater photo seminar in my home waters of Key largo, joined by fellow Canon Explorer of Light Eddie Tapp teaching specialty modules in Photoshop and Lightroom. This year we were challenged by marginal water clarity early in the week due to torrential rainfall in the past few weeks preceding the class, but by mid-week the seas had calmed and the visibility improved dramatically.
Here is Eddie, far left, and me (bookended by Chuckie Luzier and Ed Meyers of Canon). The interesting thing about Key Largo is the sheer density of marine life on our reefs and wrecks. Enjoying marine protection since 1960 with the creation of John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, and then later with federal protection as the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary in 1990, there is always plenty to photogrph in Key Largo!
