NYUPS is committed to helping underwater photographers improve their images, and getting more divers into underwater photography. In-order to meet this goal NYUPS will be presenting a free seminar series at some of our upcoming monthly meetings. Patricia (PJ) Jordan a diver for more than 35 years,is also a self-taught underwater photographer and has been photographing underwater for about 15 years. Through the use of a variety of her images, PJ would like to share with NYUPS members and guests some of the things she has learned about shooting macro images. Topics to be covered will be camera equipment including housings, lenses, telextenders, strobes and sync cords. A brief review of basic photography techniques will include “F” stops, shutter speeds, focus and strobe placement.
You can’t shoot an image without a subject and subject location with and without the use of dive guides will be addressed. Buoyancy control, environmental concerns and varying underwater conditions will be included. FINALLY, PJ will discuss KARMA and its application underwater. There will be no preaching, nor will there be any pontificating. The objective of this program is not only to inform, but also to amuse.
NYUPS wants to share the joys of underwater imaging with everyone interested. So invite all your friends, new photographers, and divers who are thinking about getting into underwater photography. Everyone can benefit from this evening.
As always, the admission to the event is free, but only by RSVP. Please RSVP to rsvp@NYUPS.org. We look forward to seeing everyone and sharing food and drink with you at Arctica Bar & Grill!
