Monday, July 18th

For most people, summertime means bar-b-que, camping, and trips to the beach. For underwater photographers and divers, it is all about big animals.

The summer months are a great time to photograph big animals underwater. There are whale sharks and manta rays off the coast of Mexico. In Tonga, humpback whales gather by the dozens. And just a short drive up the road, you can swim with blue and mako sharks in Rhode Island.

In honor of all of these seasonal sights, the July NYUPS meeting (July 18) will be themed “Big Animal Bonanza.” First, there will be a presentation focused on helping improve your big animal photography. We will look at some of the techniques for capturing top-notch shots, as well as the planning and logistics for finding big animals.

Then, we want to see your favorite recent big animal images. We want to see it all: Sharks, whales, manta rays, crocodiles, dolphins, or anything else that you can think of! We know NYUPS members have some sweet shots of the big boys and girls of the ocean.

The ideal size of each landscape orientation image is 10” wide x 7.5” high, with individual file sizes being no larger than 1 MB. Please email your ten images to Joe Tepper at Joe@DivePhotoGuide.com and CC Larry Cohen at larry@liquidimagesuw.com, with the subject line “NYUPS Images—Big Animals.”
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.
As always, NYUPS meetings are free and we highly encourage anyone and everyone to attend and share their images.
The deadline for your ten best images is July 17th. After that, we cannot accept anymore entries (without free beers for the NYUPS crew). Once you send in images, you will receive confirmation within 48 hours. If you do not, or have any questions, resend the email.
We hope to see you and your wonderful images at the NYUPS "Big Animals" Meeting on July 18th.
