Photo exhibition and Underwater Photography Weekend in Deepspot – photo report

On Saturday, 15 January, after many weeks of preparation, the first and only underwater photo exhibition in this part of Europe was opened. The event was accompanied by the 1st Underwater Photography Weekend, which was a meeting of photography and diving enthusiasts.

During the first part of the day, about 50 WFP participants were able to attend theoretical lectures. They were devoted to underwater photography, the configuration of photographic equipment and digital image processing. The lectures were conducted by Piotr Stós, Marcin Trzciński and Tomasz Płociński. The gentlemen conveyed as much knowledge as they could fit into a “standard training unit” in an accessible and clear manner. Sharing their rich experience, they enriched the theory with pictures and practical examples.

Thanks to the hospitality shown by Deepspot, the presenters realised three thematic areas to practice. Among them, a macro and supermacro photography zone, a zone for working with models and a zone for practicing with light in closed spaces. Well-prepared logistics and assured safety allowed people to excel in their chosen type of photography or gain experience in completely new areas, all at their own individual pace.

In the macro zone, practical underwater support was provided by Konrad Baar with the help of Piotr Kudełka. The gentlemen set up, as befits the macro zone, a photographic mini obstacle course. Among the objects, they placed, for example, an artificial coral reef with equally artificial nudibranchs of various species.

All against the background of rock masks that resemble those known from the Cambodian temple of Bajon, as well as in spaces simulating the caves of the Mexican Yukatan.

Consultation with Irena Stangierska Since the opening of both surface located in the main hall of the swimming pool, as well as underwater section are very popular. It is hoped, therefore, that the initial three-week deadline set for the exhibition is likely to be extended.’
