This article is written for the Canon Powershot S120, but the settings work as well for the Canon Powershot (G15 / G16 /G7x / S110) cameras for Underwater Macro Photography. For shooting with strobe(s), I recommend using MANUAL mode: F8.0 (for maximum depth of field) – (F11 on G7x) 1/250sec or faster (for minimizing ambient light) […]
In some situations we end up having trouble getting everything we want to be in focus. It can be for various reasons, for example not having enough light to close the aperture. If that happens there is still a way to get around that in Adobe Photoshop. It’s called focus stack. Here’s what you can do […]
Here’s a new episode of critter awesomeness. Watch for incredible close-ups of charismatic animals such as the blue-ring octopus, ornate goby, and juvenile star puffer fish – you can see their eyes moving, their breathing and every movement they make!

I was particularly grateful to the Lembeh photo-pro Sascha Janson for his patient and tailor-made tuition. I can highly recommend the DSLR course, especially for those who want to get the most from their underwater photography during the trip. Sascha was also able to provide a tailor-made lesson on post-editing which I found invaluable.
Extremely satisfied with the Photo Center service. Finally, we have also made progress in our uw photography with valuable tips from Sascha, who also introduced us to the world of Lightroom.
A special thanks to Sascha, the Photo Pro, who I learned a lot from and who was always available for help and advise. Anybody who wants to improve their photography skills, Sascha is the Pro to go see and spend time with!
The camera pro – Sascha – is really talented and happy to help you out. My wife took a short one-on-one class with him and it made an immediate impact on her photos.
Sascha packed so much into 2 hours my photography improved instantly.
I took an underwater photo class with Sascha. Sascha provided some excellent tips and advice on camera settings, lighting, and even on organizing and editing pics in Lightroom. It was very helpful and made the trip even more interesting, giving me a fun mission to improve the quality of my pics while I was there. I don’t have an SLR, but am happy with the results from my Canon S95 and the class was worth every penny!
A few helpful comments by the in-house photo pro Sascha considerably improved my pictures.
This could happen when you do a photo course with Sascha. It brought real improvement to my pictures. Thanks a lot for the fun and the lessons learned!
Sascha was very helpful for camera support and gave good hints about software for better images!
Arriving as a complete novice underwater photographer and leaving with some relatively decent photos can only be credited to the technical knowledge of the inhouse photography expert Sascha, as well as the help of guides underwater.
