MARTHA TRESSLER - Back to Basics

Martha Tressler Our esteemed chair Martha will kick off at 8 with a return to some of the more essential techniques of underwater photography. She will discuss apertures and shutter speed, depth of field and natural light together with the effect of different lenses. Her talk will be ideal for those newer to the discipline, and also provide a useful reminder for those who are longer in the tooth, underwater image wise. Martha first picked up a marine camera in the mid 90's but counts her underwater photography from a trip to Sipadan in 1997 with Martin Edge, after which she traded in her Nik V for a housed SLR. But it was her move to digital in late 2004 that made her seriously reconsider her use of the camera, which had reached a reliance on its many automatic functions - safe and predictable. Her talk is aimed at going back to the basics of camera use.


Environmental, conservation, human damage to the oceans and seas etc. Entries must be in by Tuesday midnight September 19. Entry form.

PAUL KAY - The power of RAW

Paul has been perfecting the art of underwater photography for 25 years. He is a professional freelance photographer with a degree in scientific photography and an FRPS. He's also a BSoUP member. Paul specialises in temperate, marine natural history stills photography with the occasional commission in video. He is based in North Wales and dives mostly around the UK/Ireland, although he was spotted enjoying New Zealand earlier this year. Paul uses digital equipment in Seacam housings which he also outlets at Paul will talk about image processing, its capabilities and how it can push imagery forward. He will start with the RAW conversion and then move into optimisation/ adjustment/ enhancement/ manipulation/ falsification - enough food for thought he thinks!
