> Specialty Courses
Two excellent specialties to pair with underwater photography are the PADI Enriched Air Diver course, and the PADI Dry Suit Diver course on your way to PADI Master Scuba Diver.   The PADI Enriched Air Diver course allows you to extend your time underwater so you have more time to capture images.   In cooler climates, a dry suit allows you to dive comfortably longer, and to make more dives.  You may also find the Peak Performance Buoyancy course gives you helpful tips to optimize your weighting and skills so you’ll be in better position to capture that perfect picture.
