Photo Contest
2021 Photo contest includes all photos shot during the year 2021. We enjoy having you bring your photos in and sharing them with us at the dive center. Bring your pictures in anytime before August 15th so we can put them on display and enter them in the contest. We don't want anyone to think they have to be a professional to enter. Most of the professional underwater photographers say that shooting fresh water pictures is the hardest to shoot and dread taking them. So get out and shoot and show them what we can do. We also have a salt water division for each of the below categories so look through this years pictures and bring some in for the contest.
This is a good way to learn to improve on your underwater shooting skills.
Contest rules; 
1. Each diver can submit up to five photos and we will put them on display at the dive center. 
2. On the back of each photo please attach your name, date, location, and the title of the picture. 
3. Division 1 Photos shot in freshwater.
4. Division 2 Photos shot in salt water
5. Pictures have to have been shot in the year 2021. 
6. Pictures must be submitted by August 15th, 2021.
7. Pictures become property of Tri-State Diving
Categories are;
Point and Shoot Cameras

Digital Cameras  

Underwater Photography Class

We have had a number of  divers requesting an UW photo class so we are setting one up this summer.  We would like to have a couple of more to complete the class.  If you are planning on buying an underwater system or want to hone up on your skills talk to us about the class.  Digital camera are getting better and less expensive so more divers are using them for underwater with some great results. We have some great manuals on taking digital pictures.


Medallion Hunt

We have placed 40 medallions in several of the area's most popular diving lakes. These medallions all have the Tri-State Diving name and a number on them. There will be no clues posted for these because they have simply been placed on the bottom hopefully where you can easily see them. Seal has taken many divers right over different medallions and they never saw them, one diver put his hand within inches of one and didn't see it.. 2019 and 2020 none were found. Keep looking when you are diving in area lakes as we have some nice prizes to give away. Most of them over the years have been found by new students.
