Certified professional photographers Michael and Angela Koska impart fledgling photogs with digital-picture-taking knowledge during the four-hour workshop. The class is divided into three parts—Digital Basics, Taking Better Pictures, and What to Do After the Shoot—to cover all aspects of digital photography. Each camera crusader will learn the fundamentals and snapshooting, from how to use the flash correctly, to how to take pictures quickly enough to capture an image of The Flash. Students will also study backgrounds, foregrounds, and how to get up-close and personal without invading someone's personal space. Before the class ends, aspiring Annie Leibovitzes will know how to eliminate instances of red-eye and what camera angles best capture replicas of The Thinker made entirely of discarded pizza boxes.

Divers clad in tanks and fins plunge beneath the water's surface. As their eyes adjust to the submerged world, they start to recognize the telltale outline of a sunken subway car, but its once-metallic exterior is almost unrecognizable as it's now covered with colorful coral. A school of spadefish scatters as scuba divers move in closer and begin to uncover the mystery of the Atlantic's depths. The team at Charleston Scuba's PADI five-star instructor development center helps moments like these unfold. Experienced divers lead classes for ages 8 and up, introducing essential scuba skills and the safety techniques needed to shoe a seahorse. During advanced courses, instructors hone in on specialties such as deep-river diving. The staff also facilitates underwater breathing with an in-house repair department and retail store. For chartered voyages, a Coast Guard-certified captain ushers divers into the Trinity?an Island Hopper custom-built for diving and equipped with showers and first aid amenities. The ship's crew navigates the vessel toward reefs and submerged wreckage. They also help passengers snag above-water sights such as flocks of wild rubber duckies during custom harbor cruises.

When Todd Surber's parents incorrectly loaded film into their camera on the day of his high-school graduation, they left their son without any pictures to document his achievement. These days, at King Street Studios, Todd ensures that similar special moments are never lost for his clients. He snaps shots of families, weddings, clown troupes, and high-school seniors with a photojournalistic style honed from touring with top rock bands such as Papa Roach. After sessions on location or in Todd’s 1,500-square-foot boutique studio, patrons can choose their most beloved memories in an online proofing gallery of retouched color or black-and-white images. Todd also invites customers to view their canvas portraits in the studio’s projection room so they can see how the pictures will appear when enlarged to their appropriate size.
