OCUPS Meeting - Everyone is invited to come!

Park Place Residence

ABOUT THE MONTHLY MEETINGS Meetings begin at 7:00 p.m. every second Tuesday of the month in the city of Orange. At the meetings we introduce a guest speaker, offer technical tips and workshops, show off our image captures, and conduct a monthly mini-photo contest for all skill levels. There is also an annual photo contest. ABOUT OCUPS The Orange County Underwater Photographic Society was created in the late 1960s by a small group of dedicated scuba divers who shared a common interest in underwater photography. Today OCUPS has over 70 members who share that same interest. We welcome all levels of underwater photographers to our monthly meetings to share new skills and techniques, show some favorite images, make new friends, and have fun while learning. If you're new to underwater photography you'll find many experienced photographers who are willing to help you get started. We also love visitors, so if you're in the area and can attend a meeting, please stop by to say hello. If you decide to join OCUPS (about $20/year) you can also participate in the monthly photo contest. If you have any questions about the meeting or visit http://www.ocups.org... (http://www.ocups.org) for club information, membership and contest rules.
