Digital Shootout Event Coverage Now Live

The 2018 Digital Shootout held at Coco View Resort in Roatan, Honduras event coverage is now live! A weeklong plus workshop for underwater photographers and videographers wanting to improve their shooting and editing skills in a friendly and fun learning environment. Participants also have the added bonus of trying out the latest underwater camera systems and accessories while diving, and a non-competitive photo and video contest awarding awesome prizes.

Joel and Jen’s first experience with the Digital Shootout was in 2008 as participants. Joel was fortunate and skillful enough to be awarded two firsts in the wide-angle categories, resulting in an amazing trip. The following year, we were added to the staff of the event. Ten years later, the Digital Shootout remains our favorite time of the year!

To get the flavor of this high-energy learning event for underwater image-makers, check out Joel’s Day-in-the-Life video!

The Digital Shootout event coverage website is designed and developed by Newmediasoup, LLC. The event production is a collaborative effort of the many industry pros that attend the event each year.

Underwater Silhouette

A silhouette is the image of a person, animal, object or scene represented as a solid shape of a single color, usually black, with its edges matching the outline of the subject.

Capturing silhouettes underwater is a favorite image-making style of ours, especially of divers and the environments which we are fortunate to explore. Underwater silhouettes can really communicate the ‘WOW’ of scuba diving to a general audience.

Learn how to capture silhouettes underwater!

We’ve recently added updates to our iOS Applications on the iTunes App Store to better support iOS 11 and new devices that have been released.
