Wednesday, 18th June 2008

The next BSoUP meeting takes place on Wednesday, 18th June 2008 at 7.30 for 8.00 p.m. at our usual venue the Holland Club, Imperial College, S. Kensington, London. Directions.

Photo techniques: Dome Ports by Peter Scoones.

Peter Scoones is probably best known for his stunning underwater film and video sequences in the block-busting BBC series 'Life on Earth', 'Blue Planet' and 'Life in the Freezer' amongst many others. Peter was making his own dome ports back in the 1960's and is certainly more than qualified to impart some of his vast storehouse of knowledge.

Focus On Competition: Wide Angle. BSoUP Members only. Please read the Rules first and then submit your images via the online Entry form.

Main event: British Underwater Image Festival 2008 - a review presented by Colin Doeg and Peter Scoones.

BSoUP Co-founders, Colin Doeg and Peter Scoones were two of the judges at BUIF earlier this year and will present the winning still images and DVD's.

This the third annual British Underwater Image Festival attracted more than 1,300 entries sent in by underwater photographers and film-makers from 30 different countries. Entrants competed in seven categories in the stills photography competition and three categories in the videography section, with thousands of pounds worth of prizes available to the winners.
