Every photographer has images that are dear to their heart. It might not be a great image but it reminds the image-maker where they were when it was created. Or it might be the first time a certain technique was used or the first time you saw a certain fish.
At the February 2 NYUPS meeting show us your favorite 5 to 10 images you took IN 2009. Come prepared to tell us why you love the images and how you created them. NOTE: If you didn‘t shoot much in 2009, submit the latest you like.
NEW CATEGORY: First Time Contributors contest
We love to see new contributors swimming in the NYUPS photo pool. Photos are our passion and by sharing we all grow and get better as photographers and presenters. It is why we do it in the first place. To share our passion for our sport. “leap and the net will appear.” Remember, you are among like-minded friends, this is the best place to show your work. (And, don't forget, you get bragging rights the morning after. Your water cooler talk will trump the football results: "…that's nice, but, last night I presented at the New York Underwater Photographic Society…." This month, we are awarding a free Liquid Beverage for the Best 2009 Image by a NEW SUBMITTOR.
