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.

Now that we are half way through 2015 lets remember the good old days back in 2014. Since we did not have a December meeting lets celebrate last year NOW!
We want to see your favorite underwater images from 2014 and hear how you captured them. Since it’s an image sharing session, other NYUPS-ers will give praise and constructive criticism on how we can all improve our underwater photography moving into 2015 and the future.
The ideal size of each landscape orientation image is 10” wide and 7.5” high for portrait images. All images should be 150 DPI, or pixels per inch, and .JPG files. If you would like to submit videos, please bring them to the meeting as Quicktime files on a flash drive. Please number your emails or use Dropbox.
In your email, on the subject line please type in caps “NYUPS IMAGES: 2014.” Please email all your images to Larry Cohen at email@example.com and CC Joe Tepper at Joe@DivePhotoGuide.com.
Date of Submission
The deadline for images is Sunday, June 28th. You will receive a confirmation of the receipt of your images from Larry. If you don’t, please contact Joe.
Please note that you do not need to submit images to attend the meeting – feel free to just come and enjoy the images, share and learn a little about improving your photography techniques! We want to stress that 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.
This month our meeting is back at Alpha Fusion. Our host Henry Yang is a NYUPS supporter and most of his restaurant will be set-aside for us. So join us for a great time having Asian food, drinks and looking at images.
