Duxy‘s Escorted Photography Holidays

Duxy Says...Starting on the weekend of Saturday the 17th of January we will introduce Adobe's popular photo editing software with the Saturday being devoted to beginners and newbies to Lightroom with a self contained day devoted to getting to grips with the software, so topics covered will be for first time users, such as Catalogs, workflow and basic photo editing, and the content will be based upon all the feedback I've got from people new to the program over the last year, so you know that you'll be learning exactly what you need.

Lightroom Introduction

Dates: 17 Jan 2015 - 17 Jan 2015

Duxy Says...The Sunday the 18th will be for those folks already familiar to Lightroom's basic operation, so great if you've been on one of last years photo trips, or a previous weekend clinic. I will be covering primarily photo editing skills ie masking, brushes, and different processing techniques, allowing you to progress your skills even further with this fantastic program. We will also look more closely at integrating Lightroom with other editing software like Photoshop or similar.

Cyclone Cyclone


Duxy Says...This is going to be a great trip to pin down those skills necessary to allow your underwater photography to progress. Maybe you've just got some new kit, and you want to iron out the wrinkles, or you've always wanted to master wide angle strobe positioning. A trip like this gives us enormous freedom to try out things repeatedly, and this is the best way to ensure that the learning sticks, and with every little milestone your confidence will grow, exponentially!

Duxys Winter Warmer

Dates: 31 Jan 2015 - 07 Feb 2015

Duxy Says...Bali, a destination on most travellers wish lists. For us divers though it's exotic fish filled waters add a whole extra layer of interest to the locale. Underwater photographers are presented with a whole array of things to  shoot. The Tulamben area which we will be diving has everything from the famed Liberty Wreck with its schooling fish, alongside all the usual Indonesian ingredients of interesting macro life, with everything inbetween. Your only difficulty is going to be deciding which lens to use. Wide or macro, mmmmh? I love going to somewhere new and being faced with these decisions.

Mistral Mistral


Duxy Says...This is a great course for anyone interested in underwater photography (or if you are just not feeling confident about using your camera!). I will cover the basic principles to get you up and running in no time, as well as more advanced techniques for experienced shooters. Use the TakeItEasy method to demystify the techniques needed to enable you to take home some great shots. I have picked this time in mid summer as there will be no shortage of great subject matter to shoot, from impressive wrecks to huge schools of fish"

Mistral Mistral


Duxy Says...Do you sometimes struggle to convey in your pictures, the drama and scale of your favourite wrecks? Come on this Wreck photo special where you will learn not only the technical expertise to shoot successfully in a variety of sometimes challenging lighting situations, but also how to inject some compositional and artistic skills into your wreck pictures. Placing them into context, telling a story and showing scale will be just some of the topics we will cover in this trip. So dust off your wide angles, and hop onboard for a wreck photo extravaganza

Lembeh Resort Lembeh Resort


Duxy Says...Lembeh, described by many as the weirdest square mile on earth, because of the sheer variety and oddness of the creatures that have made it their home. From psychedelic nudibranchs to hirsute frogfish, crazy crustacea and quite frankly some of the silliest Cephalopods you'll ever point your camera at. Primarily a destination to give your eyesight and macro lenses a thorough workout. Thankfully spotting your subject matter is a breeze as some of the most gimlet eyed guides you'll meet are there to assist you in your forays.
