Please join us on Wednesday, September 18 at 7:30 pm, at the Natural History Museum (Times Mirror Room) for a night of trip reports and mini-workshops:

Workshop #1 is on getting correct colors underwater and teaches how to use a MacBeth color checker in an IPAD housing to correctly calibrate your strobe output independent of the color temperature of the strobe. We will do a live demo to show the steps involved and then how to use the resulting data in Lightroom.

Workshop #2 is on using novel tools in our macro underwater photography and how to increase our portfolio using some of these tools and how to build your own versions.

Meeting location is:

10700 Jefferson Blvd.
Culver City, CA 90230
We will start gathering in the banquet room around 6pm for dinner - management has recommended that we place our orders with staff in the main area before heading into the banquet room, as that will speed up food delivery.

Please see our submission instructions

Minicomp entries due 11:59pm TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17.

Video entries may also be brought on thumb drive*** to the meeting, or you can  send them via email (, Dropbox, WeTransfer, or other method.

We've been happy to hold meetings at the Natural History Museum for many years, but for a number of reasons we feel it's time to try out some alternatives.  In August, we're meeting at the Denny's restaurant in Culver City.  It should be easier to get to for most folks, which has been the number one reason we hear for people not attending. 
Plus it has the bonus of letting us all meet at one place for pre-meeting dinner!  We hope to see some of you there early for food.
Please come check it out and let us know what you think!

Join us for dinner in their banquet room at 6pm, and the meeting officially begins at 7:30pm as always!
