Reefpix.org chat!

Wetpixel contributor James Wiseman (jamesw) is moderating an o­nline chat about digital underwater photography, which will take place o­n Wednesday July 24th 9pm Eastern:

I'd like to introduce you to my new website with an o­nline chat and you are all invited! Please take your wetsuit off before coming inside...

What I plan to do is present a talk I gave to my local UW Photo Society called "From Film to Digital" The talk will be geared for both beginners and "seasoned" UW photographers.

I have put all my slides up o­nline so everyone can follow along during the talk just like it is a slideshow.
