Back to 90´s in El Born. A photo walk for ¨early birds¨.

Hello Dear Photographers

 

Time for another BPP Photography Club´s regular meetup, time for BACK TO 90´s. Join us for one of the best exercises to improve photography skills.

This time we add a little ¨hardcore¨touch to it, because who normal wakes up Sunday morning to go to photograph.

After a crazy Saturday night Barcelona wakes up very late. Peaceful atmosphere and a great morning light, long shadows will provide  a great opportunities for our street photography session.

 


 

What we will be doing?

As the topic suggests, in this meetup we will go back to the analog era. Everyone will be allowed to adjust their camera settings according to the scenario at hand. After this, we will switch off the review picture options in all the cameras (or tape the screens of the cameras lacking this setting) and will start shooting around. You can still play with your settings.

Like in the film era,everyone is limited to 36 shots without reviewing any of the shots before the end of the meetup. The purpose of the meetup is to challenge all members to think hard about all elements of photography (camera settings, composition etc) before they shoot.

All BPP Photography Group´s meetups are hosted by skilled photographers, so please bring all your photography doubts and questions and we will be happy to answer them.


What do YOU need to bring?

Good mood+YOUR camera + favorite lenses + tripod(if you want) !!!some money for a drink after a meetup.

How long will the meetup be?

Approx 2- 2.5h +(optional) a drink/coffee in one of a local bars to discuss the meetup, photographs taken and future meetups.

Does it cost anything?

Organisation fee is 2 euros.

 

Any questions or/and suggestions please feel free to contact me.

    Please take a moment and read this little part of interview with Henri Cartier Bresson. ¨It’s a question of concentration. Concentrate, think, watch, look and, ah, like this, you are ready. But you never know the culminative point of something. So you’re shooting. You say, “Yes. Yes. Maybe. Yes.” But you shouldn’t overshoot. It’s like overeating, overdrinking. You have to eat, you have to drink. But over is too much. Because by the time you press, you arm the shutter once more, and maybe the picture was in between.


    That is why we believe ¨Back to 90´s¨meetup is one of the best exercise for any photographer and will be worth it to wake up heheh.
    See you Sunday amigos.
