Join us on June 2nd for a special dual format meeting. We will host our usual image submission and discussion, but we also have a special treat of a showcase of new underwater imaging equipment.
New Equipment Showcase
The world of underwater imaging evolves ever so rapidly. Mike Luzansky of H2O Photo Pros will be presenting the upcoming technologies in photo & video, from the latest HD video cameras to the convergence of DSLR and HD Video. Along with a presentation on the latest technologies, Mike will bring with him many of the latest toys, including some of the latest DSLR housings from Hugyfot and Sea &Sea, including housings for the Nikon D90 and the Canon 5D MKII, and also the latest HD video housings from Light & Motion, Seatool and Gates. He may even have a Gates Deep Red system for the new RED One cinema camera!
Image Theme: "The Human Element"
Including people in your underwater images (divers, snorkelers, swimmers, etc), adds a human element that helps the viewer associate with the image.
We encourage you to submit up to 10 of your favorite shots that include "the human element". As always, feel free to include images for which you would like to hear the group's recommendations for improvement.
The focus will be to share, discuss, and learn about including people/divers in your underwater images.
IMAGE SPECS: 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 file type.
If you would like to submit videos, please bring them to the meeting as Quicktime files on 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". Please email all your images to Steve Edelstein at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Date of submission: Images will be cheerfully accepted for the upcoming meeting until the Sunday evening before the meeting. Any images submitted after that cannot be included. You will receive a confirmation of the receipt of your images. If you don’t, please contact Steve Edelstein.
Please note that you do not need to submit images to attend the meeting – you can feel free to just come and enjoy the images, share and learn a little about big animal photography! 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 that this is not a competition. The idea is to share your best or favorite images & video, and let other UW photographers know your techniques and the thought process that went into it, and also learn from the group.
As always, the admission to the event is free, but only by RSVP. Please RSVP to rsvp@NYUPS.org.
We look forward to seeing your images and sharing food and drink with you at Arctica Bar & Grill!!
