Topics I've Started

Ken Corben

15 April 2014 - 08:55 AM

Please join us in the Times Mirror room of the Natural History Museum at 7:30pm, Wednesday April 16, for a presentation by Kenneth Corben.

Ken Corben is a multiple EMMY winning Director of Photography with credits spanning the underwater genre from 3D IMAX production to Shark Week and Hollywood features. His film projects have led him to both the Arctic and Antarctic as well as many of the Earth’s remote regions in between.

Ken will present images and video from his recent expedition to the Solomon Islands and discuss filming biofluorescence at night with new technologies. The new discoveries and their advanced biomedical applications are astounding. The new image possibilities for all us underwater enthusiasts even more so.


Ipad Help

16 September 2013 - 05:06 PM

I don't know if this is the correct forum but here goes.


Often on a dive trip, I try to put a slide show together from everyone's photos. If everyone has a laptop this usually isn't an issue. I bring a Mac Air and a bunch of usb sticks (some windows/some mac) and things are fine. On our last trip though, most of the other photographers had their photos on an iPad and had organized them into a favorites folder (10 photos of the 5000 or so on the iPad). How in he** can you download from a folder on the ipad to my mac. The solution needs to be WIFI free i.e. there is usually no wifi available and has to be local to either my mac or my ipad since the other ipads can't simply download the app since there is no wifi and often no cell signal either to create a local hotspot.  


Any suggestions are appreciated,
