FYI only as this is not an official Sea Gypsies event.
Most people shriek or run away from the nearest body of water when they hear the word shark. Not a bad deal for photographers who love getting close to our fin-ey friends—just more room for us.
At the October NYUPS meeting, we will be celebrating our love for all things chondrichthyes by sharing our favorite shark images. All guests will be invited to share 8-10 of their favorite shark images, and share with the group the stories that went into capturing them. As with past events, we'll have an informal discussion on the images and all are welcomed.
The ideal size of each landscape orientation image is 10” wide x 7.5” high – no larger. If an image is portrait, the image should be no more than 7.5” high x whatever width (certainly less than 10”.)
All images should be 72 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, CD or DVD.
In your email, on the subject line please type in caps “NYUPS IMAGES: Sharks.” Please email all your images to Matt Weiss at
and CC Larry Cohen at
.DATE OF SUBMISSION
The deadline for images is October 13. You will receive a confirmation of the receipt of your images. If you don’t, please contact Larry or Matt.
A reminder – this is not a competition. The idea is to share photos that you think will help others and yourself learn. It might even be helpful to try and recall the camera settings, whether you have a compact or big ol’ SLR. We look forward to seeing your images and sharing food and drink with you at the B&H Event Space on October 15.
