Doors open: 7:00 p.m.
Pre-Meeting starts: 7:15 p.m.
Meeting starts: 8:00 p.m.


Meetings are held in Millbrae, California. For directions or more information about NCUPS visit our website at: http://www.ncups.org

FEATURED PRESENTER: Michael Topolovac
Michael Topolovac, Light & Motion co-founder and past CEO will do a presentation on “Core Techniques”. Giving real world examples shot in HD, he will cover important topics such as shooting in natural light, mixed light, and how to leverage the sun’s location. The following core techniques will also be discussed: zoom, shutter speed, exposure, multiple shot types, how to incorporate movement, using a tripod, and other general tips and tricks.

Biography: Michael is a serial entrepreneur who hacks away at underwater imaging whenever he gets the chance. He was first exposed to the diving world in high-school when he got certified to drive the submarine he was building for his science fair project. While his career as a submariner was short lived, it paved the way for him being awarded the Rolex Our World - Underwater Scholarship which introduced him to UW photography and gave him a chance to learn from some of the greats such as David Doublet and Stan Waterman. From that experience the idea for Light & Motion emerged which was subsequently started from his dorm room at Stanford. Michael has gone on to start two companies since Light & Motion but stays involved there as its Chairman of the Board and helps drive product strategy. Visit Michael's website www.topolovac.com for more information.

Premeeting Seminar: GeoTagging Your Images by Brad Brown. 



Want to learn how to add location information to your photo's metadata? It's easy and does NOT require a GPS device or advanced planning. Once your photos are geotagged you will be able to feature them on location aware websites such as panoramio.com and flickr.com. You will also be able to integrate your photos into your Google Earth. You will never find yourself looking at an old photo and asking "Where did I take that shot?"

After this short seminar you will be able go home, download recommended software and quickly and efficiently geotag your entire photo archive.
