February 13 PNWUPS Meeting

Hope your year is off to a great start! This should be another outstanding year for diving, photography, and travel.

February 13 Meeting
The February meeting will center around two topics: 1.) Calibrating monitors and 2.) Wide angle photography: different lenses, ports, lighting, and settings. A starting point will be some shark photography from a January trip to Tiger Beach in the Bahamas.

We will have calibration hardware and software for anyone who wants to see how this works on their lap tops.

Additionally, we want to firm up dates for some local, Canadian, and California diving. Plans are still progressing for an e-magazine that would showcase Pacific Northwest underwater photographers, dive operators, and travel. The initial test can be found at this link: Marker Buoy e-Magazine.

Dives & Travel
So far the photo dive calendar looks as follows:

April 30-May 6: Pt Lobos & Monterey
May 27-June 4: Bahamas Dolphins & Sharks
July 23: World Wide Photo Walk
August 5-11: Six Gill Shark Week, Barkley Sound

If any trips sounds interesting, please call and leave a message at 425.418.8755.

We are waiting on dates for the PNW Dive Expo so we can post information about this annual contest. Due to the holidays the Dive Photo Guide contest of the month has not been announced.
