NYUPS June Meeting: “Danger Under the Sea"
Many people that don’t dive think diving is dangerous. The believe that marine life with teeth and that sting come swimming up to divers to attack. Certain environments including cave and wreck interiors are really dangerous to the diver without special training. Because of these perceptions, photos of marine life with teeth, that sting and inside dangerous environments are great photo subjects. Please send us up to 8 of your “Danger Under the Sea" images or video. We want to know how you produced the images and still came back alive. We will continue with a group discussion format. As a group we will tell you what we all liked about your images and ways they could be captured differently. 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. Please email us that you will be bringing a video to the meeting. In your email, on the subject line please type in caps NYUPS: “Danger Under the Sea" Email all of your images to [masked]. You should get a confirmation email within 24 hours. If not, please email Larry at [masked] DATE OF SUBMISSION: The deadline for images is Sunday June 24th, 2018. 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, NYUPS at the Sea Gypsies wants to share the joys of underwater imaging with everyone interested.

What we're about

Who are The New York City Sea Gypsies?

Founded by local scuba divers and instructors in 1971, we are a not-for-profit club made up of individuals of diverse ages and from all walks of life with one thing in common, we all share a love of scuba diving.

For some, this means local wreck diving every weekend. For others it's about exotic diving vacations to all parts of the world. Some enjoy underwater photography or videography, others seek artifacts or hunt lobsters, while many others just enjoy the underwater sights. A number of our members have been diving for over 30 years; some are just beginning their journey into the fascinating underwater world.

We actively encourage safe diving and encourage continuing education to improve diving skill.

Whatever your own interests, there's someone in the club you can talk to about local diving, worldwide destinations, wrecks, cave diving, gear, ecology, marine life, photography, dive safety and medicine, or any other dive-related subject.
