Main Purpose: To learn / experience the advantages (and even the disadvantages) of using a PRIME LENS which forces you to move your body in order to change the perspective of your image as opposed to turning the ring on your zoom lens.
We will shoot using only prime (fixed focal length, non-zoom) lenses. Any type are welcome.
This Month's Topic: Macro Photography
This month's Prime Lens Meetup will be devoted to Macro Photography. We will concentrate on capturing close-up images, so any additional equipment including close-up filters, extension tubes, and reversal rings are also allowed.
Don't have a "macro" lens? No problem, bring any prime lens and use it to take close up photos of various objects. For under $15, you can even convert your 50mm lens into the "poor man's macro lens" by using a reversing ring. See links below for typical 50mm f/1.8 lenses with 52mm filter threads:
When in the park, just follow the signs to Lake Pointe Hall. We'll meet just behind Lake Pointe Hall facing the lake. There are tons of places to shoot here. Most of all, we'll have some fun and hopefully learn something new!
Although this is a FREE event for all members, please RSVP, especially if your plans change and have to cancel. Members may bring a guest to use as a model or assistant.
Steve will be there to assist our members from 6:00-8:00pm. After the shoot (8:05pm), for those that would like to continue to join us, we will meet just down the road at Mario's Pizza to wind down, grab some food and drink, and display/discuss some of the images from this event on their large screen monitor.
Please plan on posting your best images to this event page and labeling each image with the focal length of the lens used, i.e. (50mm), so we can all enjoy and learn from them. Selected images will be displayed at our main Monthly Meetup on Tuesday, July 1st.
