Hope everyone had a great holiday season full of good times spent with family and friends! Best wishes for the coming year.
The January meeting will focus on dark backgrounds: camera settings and post processing. Dark backgrounds make for dramatic pictures, and also are a useful way of hiding backscatter. Also on the agenda will be getting ready for photo submittals for the Pacific Northwest Dive and Travel Expo this coming May 21-23, planning local dives, and the regular photo and travel sharing.
There are two out of area travel opportunities currently on the horizon. First is a trip to Monterey in the April time frame. We plan on trying to schedule time with photographers from Backscatter and the Northern California underwater photographic group. The second is a dolphin/reef shark photo shoot out of Freeport in the Bahamas. The dates on this trip are June 5-12, and there are currently four slots available. If either of these trips are of interest, please give Dan a call at 425.418.8755.
Mary Beth Johnson, Tim Dold, and Dan Clements are showing underwater photos from January 11 through March 6 at Sisters in Everett. This another opportunity both to show work and share the beauty of life below the water line with others.
Peter Rowlands just came out with issue 52 of Underwater Photographer. This is a free on-line publication from the UK that is full of useful information. If you have not seen this publication, be sure to check it out.
