We have many subjects to photograph underwater including marine life, reefs, shipwrecks and caves. Using our dive buddy, adds a human element to the image. In an underwater portrait they are the subject. Divers could also be used as props to show scale, or bring attention to the subject.
At our February meeting we invite you to share images of your dive buddy that you are proud of, or would like input from fellow members on how to improve. We ask that you bring no more than ten images. We want to spend time not only hearing how you took the photo, but discussing how it could be improved.
The ideal size of each landscape orientation image is 10” wide x 7.5” high – no larger. If an image is portrait, the image should be no more than 7.5” high x whatever width (certainly less than 10”.) If you size your images by pixels, the images should be a maximum of 720 pixels wide by 540 pixels high for landscape, and 540 pixels high for portrait.
All images should be 72 DPI, or pixels per inch, and .JPG files. If you would like to submit videos, please bring them to the meeting as Quicktime files on a flash drive, CD or DVD. Videos should be clips less then 5 minutes each. In your email, on the subject line please type in caps “NYUPS images: Dive Buddy.” Please email all your images to Steve Edelstein at firstname.lastname@example.org

Please note that you do not need to submit images to attend the meeting – feel free to just come and enjoy the images, share and learn a little about improving your dive buddy photography techniques! We want to stress that all of our meetings are for photographers of all levels. It doesn't matter what camera you use or how long you've been shooting, NYUPS wants to share the joys of underwater imaging with everyone interested.
A reminder – this is not a competition. The idea is to share photos that you think will help others and yourself learn. It might even be helpful to try and recall the camera settings, whether you have a compact or big ol’ SLR. We look forward to seeing your images and sharing food and drink with you at Artctica Bar & Grill On Tuesday, February 5th!
