15.-17.2.2015 professional photographer and dive instructor Ralf Åström comes to Living Colours in Bunaken to arrange photography seminar which concentrates specially in black and white photography and composition.

Ralf Åström started working as full-time advertising photographer in 1985 and nowadays he's working from his own studio Rafu has worked full-time and part-time scuba instructor since 1992 and since his OWD in Australia he has always dived with camera. From 1994 to 1997 I worked as a Scuba instructor and photo-pro in the Caribbean ( Belize, St. Lucia, Aruba and Bonaire).

This is what Åström tells about the seminar:

Since I've gathered thousands of underwater images during the years I have recently tried to find new ways of differentiating from the mass of underwater pictures.

The digital age has made it easy to get carried away by shooting pictures of "everything that moves" without thinking of composition. Visualizing and preparation will prevent us from filling our hard drives with unnecessary junk.

Keeping these things in mind I have prepared a underwater photo seminar held in the premises of Living Colours, Bunaken.


We will also work on editing images in color as well as concentrating on visualizing in black&white.

It is easier to create interesting B&W images in poor condition, without strobe or the right lens than with color. With available light, shadows and forms we can create stunning timeless images good enough to hang on a wall.

For editing images and custom conversions to B&W we will use Photoshop and Lightroom.

Some of my underwater images you can find here:

The seminar is for all skill levels but advanced photographer will gain more since we are concentrating more on the artistic side of photography.

Reguirements: Own underwater camera (any level), laptop not required but good to have.

Price 150 eur (not including dives).
