Taking portraits of family members at holidays: Easy. Taking quality fish portraits, not so much.

At the November NYUPS we want to see your favorite fish portrait images. Whether it’s a portrait of a parrotfish, a candid of a catfish or a snapshot of a swordfish, the next meeting is dedicated just to fish portrait images.

Taking a good fish portrait image can be tricky—the lighting, the composition, the difficult subject. Presenting your images to the NYUPS community will be a good opportunity not only to show off your skills, but also receive friendly critique on how to improve your pictures.

Please send no more than 12 fish portrait images for presentation at the meeting. The ideal size of each landscape orientation image is 10” wide x 7.5” high – no larger. If an image is portrait, the image should be no more than 7.5” high x whatever width (certainly less than 10”.)

All images should be 150 DPI, or pixels per inch, and .JPG files. If you would like to submit videos, please bring them to the meeting as Quicktime files on a flash drive. You might want to send more than one email since we are asking for larger files. Please number your emails or use Dropbox.

In your email, on the subject line please type in caps “NYUPS IMAGES: Fish Portraits.” Please email all your images to Joe Tepper at and CC Larry Cohen at

The deadline for images is Sunday, November 2nd. You will receive a confirmation of the receipt of your images from Joe. If you don’t, please contact Larry.

Please note that you do not need to submit images to attend the meeting – feel free to just come and enjoy the images, share and learn a little about improving your photography 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 wants to share the joys of underwater imaging with everyone interested.

This month our meeting is back at Alpha Fusion. Our host Henry Yang is a NYUPS supporter and most of his restaurant will be set-aside for us. So join us for a great time having Asian fusion food, drinks and looking at images.
