For a number of years, the New York Underwater Photographic Society was an independent venue for showcasing it’s members’ underwater images and video. In 2017, the NYUPS was incorporated into the NYC Sea Gypsies as a special interest group. However, the organization continues with the same mission of sharing our work, constructive criticism, and improving our skills by learning from each other and from special invited speakers.
The theme of our April meeting is “Let There be Light!”. The definition of photography is the art or process of producing images by the action of radiant energy and especially light on a sensitive surface (as film or an optical sensor). Underwater we use strobes, LEDs, or natural light. Sometimes we use a combination of all three. At the April meeting we want to see examples and hear how you think about light - up to 15 images or a short video.
IMAGE SPECS All images should be .JPG files, 10” at the largest side and 150 DPI. If you would like to submit videos, please bring them to the meeting as Quicktime files on a flash drive.
In your email, on the subject line please type in caps “UW Imaging: Let There Be Light.” Please email all your images to Mike Rothschild at firstname.lastname@example.org.
DATE OF SUBMISSION The deadline for images is Thursday, April 13. You will receive a confirmation of the receipt of your images. If you don’t, please contact Mike.
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 imaging 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, UW Imaging Committee wants to share the joys of underwater imaging with everyone interested.
