April 4, 2023 Meeting - featuring Christine Roenspiess

Please join the Sarnia Photographic Club on Tuesday, April 4 for an exciting presentation on underwater photography by club member Christine Roenspiess. You will be amazed by her incredible photos of some of the most colorful wildlife to be found on this planet. In her presentation “Shooting Underwater Photography,” Christine will use underwater photos she has shot at various destinations around the world to illustrate the main tips for nature photography.

Christine began her adventure in photography as a child borrowing her father’s Nikon camera before buying her own. Then, upon learning to scuba dive on a trip to Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, she knew immediately that she wanted to take photos underwater. Since that time, she has owned several underwater cameras from a Nikonos V film camera to her current setup of a Nikon D500 DSLR in a Nauticam housing.

Christine became a Scuba Instructor in Canada in 1995 and then worked in the dive industry in the Cayman Islands for seven years where she honed her underwater photography skills by spending all of her free time in the water. Now retired as an instructor, Christine travels to dive destinations, diving with other photographers and taking underwater photography workshops to learn about new photography gear and shooting techniques. She enjoys taking images that reveal the personality of the inhabitants of the underwater world and is fascinated with capturing natural behaviour that shows the real lives of the creatures.

This will be a hybrid meeting with everyone welcome to attend in-person at the library theatre or watch the meeting online via the Zoom app. Our club welcomes guests to attend a couple of meetings to learn more about the club. Anyone interested in attending can simply email the club at sarnia.photographic.club@gmail.com to get the Zoom link, or alternatively attend in person at the Sarnia Library theatre. Social time begins at 6:30 PM and the meeting begins promptly at 7:00 PM.
