Ever have your macro setup when a whale shark wanders by? Or a fisheye lens when you discover an ultra-rare nudibranch? One of the most frustrating things about being an underwater photographer is having the wrong lens on, at the right time.

At February’s NYUPS we are celebrating the moments when we missed the shot—whether due to having the wrong lens, facing the wrong direction, having your strobes turned off, or just the completely wrong settings. We are sharing our biggest flubbed shots, not only to laugh off the missed opportunity, but learn how we can improve the next time.

Please send no more than 12 flubbed 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 Friday, February 6th. 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.

SPECIAL NOTE: Temporarily, NYUPS meetings have been moved to the Monday nights, including February’s gathering, which is set for Monday the 9th. 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.
