Douglas Hoffman in Fiji
Fiji Siren – Beyond the Bligh, 2 – 12 October 2016
Douglas will return to Siren Fleet and accompany guests on board for a 10-night trip to Fiji, being on hand to give advice on the differing techniques that will be used throughout any dive trip. His presentations are delivered in such a way as to be appropriate for macro, wide-angle, compact and SLR photography. As an artist, Douglas believes much of the success with photography is related to envisaging the image prior to the dive to ensure you achieve the style of photo you were looking for and will spend time with guests to achieve these results. He will also accompany divers, giving assistance with composition and framing underwater.
After dives Douglas will sit with guests to review their photos, giving suggestions for improvement. This can be done individually or by making use of the plasma screen in the S/Y Fiji Siren’s lounge.
Each evening a round-table discussion is held for guests to focus on the issues that they may be experiencing during the dives. Guests are encouraged to voice their comments whether positive or negative to enable others to learn from the general knowledge and experience of the group.
