Her talk covers some of the key areas: rule of thirds, color, perspective, background, framing, movement and patterns, and the talk is illustrated throughout by Linda's images.

Domes without the Drone

At every DEMA show, speakers are invited to deliver talks about aspects of underwater imaging at a stage within the Imaging Resource Center. BSoUP Committee Member and Wetpixel Associate Editor, Alex Mustard delivered a talk entitled "Domes without the Drone" at the most recent show and wetpixel were on hand to film it. The talk is less about dome port theory, and more on the practical pros and cons of various types of domes available, together with situations in which one type may be preferable over another.
