Everyone seems to be taking videos these days. As long as you have a cellphone, you’re a content creator. But when you move to start taking video underwater, things get a bit more complicated so taking a proper Videography Specialty course is a great idea.

There’s special gear that you need to know how to use in order to keep your camera protected underwater, you need to consider buoyancy as you compose your shots and techniques and approaches to getting a good shot change because of the challenging environment.

The Videography Specialty course is designed for people with a basic knowledge of photography or videography already. You will a bit about how to change settings on your camera to better prepare it for shooting underwater, but the course does not cover how to use the camera itself.

It’s better if you have your own camera for this course since it’ll likely be that camera that you continue shooting with in the future. But if you don’t have your own camera you can rent one from Big Blue, complete with housing and a camera tray.

To register for the Videography Specialty course you must be at least 18 years old and be a certified Open Water diver.

Here’s what the general schedule for the Videography Specialty course usually looks like.

Day 1

9:00-12:00

You’ll meet your instructor and fellow students in our partner beachfront restaurant, Blue Water, in the morning and you’ll go over how to prepare a camera and housing for a dive, pre-dive checks, and useful techniques for shooting underwater.

12:45-17:00

You and your group will head out on the afternoon boat to start putting into practice the things that you spent the morning learning. You’ll shoot footage at two different dive sites with the aim of putting together a short video at the end of the course.

17:00

Back on land, you’ll quickly back up the footage you’ve taken to your computer, clean your equipment and prepare it for the next dives.

Day 2

6:00-11:00

On the second day, you’ll be up early to catch the morning boat. Armed with your camera once again, you’ll spend both dives taking stunning footage that you’ll use to create your video.

12:00-17:00

You’ll spend the afternoon going through your footage and turning it into something special. Your instructor will be there to help guide you along the way and provide all the support you need.

Don’t forget! Because of the extra nitrogen your body builds up while scuba diving, you cannot fly within 24hrs of your last dive.

Are you fit to dive?
