Hi everyone
1. Outing - 25 Jan 2014 - Ushaka SeaWorld

We have secured exclusive access to the aquarium. We will be able to shoot for an hour and a half, with the aquarium to ourselves, in the cool of the early morning.
Access is free, provided that we supply SeaWorld with photos to be used in their promotional work, and Annual Marine calendar and Bulletin.
This is a chance to shoot the sea and fish life in the morning light. Should you wish to, you can also shoot the sunrise earlier in the morning.

Date: 25 Jan 2014
Times: 7.30 - 9.00am
Where: Ushaka SeaWorld
Meet at the main entrance to SeaWorld, off the beach promenade. 
Park at the Addington parking, north of Ushaka. The parking is free, and there is a car guard.
Breakfast will be after the shoot, possibly at Java Café.

Mike Volkman shot recently at SeaWorld. To overcome the extreme blue tint, as seen in Vanessa's photos above, Mike suggests shooting in shade, or change the colour temperature in post editing to beyond 'shade' settings, or extremely warm Kelvin temperature settings. Mike says: "In order to extract colour in an underwater situation the colour temperature has to be pushed well beyond shade settings."

Colour Temp - 16 600
Colour temp - 14 750                                                         Colour temp - 8 800
