"Wide Angle"

The first rule of underwater photography is to get as close to your subject as possible. Photographers should photograph sizeable marine life, seascapes, wrecks, and portraits with a wide-angle or fisheye lens. Shooting with these lenses takes special techniques, lighting, and the ability to get close to your subject.

Please send us up to eight of your wide-angle and fisheye images or a video. We will continue with a group discussion format. We want to hear how you captured the picture, what gear you used, and your thought process in creating the images. As a group, we will tell you what we all liked about your images and how they could be captured differently.

Larry Cohen will be giving a short presentation about wide-angle and fisheye lenses.

All images should be JPG files, 10" at the largest side, and 150 DPI. If you would like to submit videos, please save them at 720p and send them in Dropbox or WeTranfer.

In your email, on the subject line, please type in caps NYUPS: "Wide-Angle." Email all of your images to You should get a confirmation email within 24 hours. If not, please email me at

The deadline for images is Monday, January 25th, 2021.

Please note that you do not need to submit images to attend the meeting – feel free just to come and enjoy the photos, share, and learn a little about improving your imaging techniques! We want to stress that our meetings are for photographers of all levels. It doesn't matter what camera you use or how long you've been shooting. NYUPS at the Sea Gypsies wants to share the joys of underwater imaging with everyone interested.
