Not only is NYUPS committed to helping underwater photographers improve their images; we want to help our members try something new. Most NYUPS members are still photographers, but at our June meeting, our very own Ron Chau will be presenting a seminar for people just starting out or curious about shooting underwater video. The first question that everyone has is what camcorder/housing should I buy and how much does it cost? If my budget is $500, $1,000, $1,500 or more, what can I expect my raw video footage to look like?
With that thought in mind, we are requesting people to submit their raw underwater video footage from ANY camera or camcorder. It could be a point and shoot camera, Digital SLR that shoots video, or a dedicated camcorder and video housing. The idea is to show video footage from a variety of different sources to display the capabilities of the camera/camcorder, not the person. The identity of the person who shot the footage will be anonymous unless the person would like to add commentary or additional information about the footage, camera/camcorder.
Footage should be in its raw format copied onto CD or DVD, from the camera/camcorder to preserve the full resolution. Since the files will be too large to email please contact Ron at ronaldhchau@yahoo.com and CC Larry Cohen larry@liquidimagesuw.com no later then May 25th 2010.
Ron will also cover the basic differences of shooting video from stills. Megapixels, resolution, frames, wide-angle, macro and how to display your work will be covered in terms of the moving image as opposed to static image. Technical aspects of different kinds of video equipment, as will as basic shooting techniques, and editing will be covered. More advanced video techniques will be coved at a meeting in the future. After the seminar we will have equipment for people to handle including camcorders, housings, lights, and accessories.
NYUPS wants to share the joys of underwater imaging with everyone interested. So invite all your friends, new photographers/ videographers, and divers who are thinking about getting into underwater imaging. 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!
