Doors open at 6:30pm when all can enjoy the Raffle Table, Sand Flea Market, and Library. All are invited, new members always welcome! The next meeting is Wednesday, May 11.
The Speaker for our May program will be: Anne DuPont, one of the most prolific underwater photographers in South Florida, Sandra Edwards began UW Film Photography in 1987, converted to Digital in 2010, and typically shoots UW pictures 2 to 3 days per week.
She is heavily involved with Macro photography of subjects like Nudibranchs, Octopus, Seahorses and Blennies….
Her Wide Angle favorites include amazing Reef-Scapes, Action shots with Goliath groupers…. And the “all encompassing” shots – that effectively transform a non-diver into an addicted sightseer of this alien world.
Sandra’s history on the reefs of Palm Beach County since the 1980’s, and her intense connection with the delicate marine life, make her an outstanding resource for our investigation of changes in the Ocean.
Sandra’s photos have graced many magazine articles throughout the years and just this week, she went out diving with WBPT Channel 2 Miami, for the “Changing Seas” series.
Anne DuPont and our scholarship winner Chelsea Bennice (program for September) will also be featured in that same episode.”.
