After a fantastic trip to the Philippines, Alex now focuses on taking a group out to Indonesia.
Margaret from Rochester was on the latest trip and here’s what she had to say: “This was a photography trip. I have not been to a better place to learn more about my camera with the range of subjects available. The resort was fantastic in all areas, room, food, staff and diving. I was up early every morning and could not wait to do more dives. In fact I did more dives than I have ever done before in the 9 days available”.

The success of this photoworkshop lies with the fabulous leader Alex Tattersall. He says “I’ve just come back from a great workshop in the Philippines and have put together another for March 2015 that I thought you might like to know about. We are going to Indonesia and staying 6 nights in Lembeh and 6 nights in Manado with Eco Divers. Total of 10 days diving with a mix of both wide and macro photography opportunities. Places are limited so early reservation is advised.

The workshop will be focused around various techniques, composition, focus modes, selecting subject matter, use of shallow depth of field and slow shutter speeds. I’ll also have on hand a range of diopters, light shaping devises, fluorescence filters for all to play with”.
