Day 1 – Zeeuws Championship Underwater Photography


I have decided, I am going to participate in this Championship!
Paid the fee and administered.

This Championship is intended for starting under water photographers.
I have to (try) and take 2 category pictures.
The first category is a manditory Theme: Yellyfish and the second category is best picture.

The Competition will be held on 2 days May 22nd and June 26th.
On these 2 days there also are two other Championships, The Dutch Open Underwater Photography Championship and The Dutch Underwater Photography Championship.
The difference between these two is that in the Open also people from Gemany, Belgium and other countries can compeed and the Dutch version is only for competitors with the Dutch Nationality.
These Championships are intended for semi professional under water photographers.
In these Championships there are five categories:
Macro, fish portret, wide angle, wide angle with model (diver) and a manditory Theme: Yellyfish

The rules for the competition I am participating in are very straight forward. At the beginning of the day, al competitiors receive an assignment.
Today’s assignment (received at 07:00) was take a picture of (part of) your tank. This picture has to be as first picture on your sd-card in the camera.

Today is the first day of the Zeeuws Championship Underwater Photograpy. Yesterday we went specially to Zeeland to practice and along the way advertised for our sport!
I was on the radio!!! Our National Radiostation 538 called me to be in the life show!
I used their app to let them know how I was going to spend my day, mentioning the competition in underwater photograpy.
Such a nice experience!

Today I am taking pictures in the waters of Zeeland and at the end of the day, I have to hand in a maximum of 100 pictures.
We did only 1 dive, but had a very good time and that must be and remain most important! To have fun in diving and in photography.
With some nice pictures on the SD-card we had a bite to eat and checked which pictures can be deleted of the card so I don’t exceed the 100 pictures.
With a nicely filled belly and a SD-card with less than 100 pictures we go to Restaurant De Grevelingen where the juy is to hand deliver the pictures.

Now it is waiting for the second day, June 26th looking forward to it!
