Please join us in the Times Mirror room of the Natural History Museum at 7:30pm, Wednesday May 21, for a presentation by award-winning freediver and underwater photographer DeeDee Flores. DeeDee is the directory of Samy's Camera's underwater photo and video division. She has also worked as a photo pro aboard the Kona Aggressor and in competitive freediving and freediving photography. She will be talking to us about freediving to photograph large animals.


MAY MINICOMPS: This month we will be voting on "Portfolio" (for still photographers), "3-minute Edited" (for video), and also on last month's video minicomp which was delayed due to technical difficulties. TRIP REPORTS We love having one or two people share their dive experiences at the beginning of meetings, so if you have a short trip report (about 5 minutes) you'd like to share, please e-mail the webmaster.

Last night's minicomp topic was "Itty Bitty", and the winners have been posted in our gallery:
