Two for one—that’s the kind of trip we all love. Recently, NYUPS member and pro-shooter PJ returned from a trip to Indonesia where she had superb photographic experiences both below the waves and above.
At the May meeting of NYUPS (Monday, May 9th), PJ will be sharing her images and stories from her recent trip to Indonesia’s Maluku Islands—also known as the “Spice Islands.” Starting in Ambon, she reveled in subjects of one of the most revered macro destinations. But that was only the beginning: From there, PJ boarded the Damai 1 liveaboard where she explored the rest of the Maluku Islands and the southern section of Raja Ampat. Highlights included the "Blue Water Mangroves” and aptly-named “Magic Mountain.”
To top it off, PJ witnessed a rare, total solar eclipse while not diving. She will be sharing the images of the eclipse as captured by Dr. Richard Ebright of Rutgers University, along with his techniques for achieving them. Of course, PJ will also discuss the underwater shooting techniques she used for wide angle, medium-sized subjects, and macro critters.
As a reminder, all NYUPS meetings are free to attend, so we invite you to come have a drink, some awesome food, and enjoy some amazing images!
