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: HDR Photography
This month's Prime Lens Meetup will be an introduction into High Dynamic Range (HDR) Photography. Steve will be on-hand to show members how to properly shoot images in preparation for the post processing that is customary to produce an HDR image. (We will not cover any info regarding in-camera HDR processing)
What to bring: Please bring prime lenses only for this event. Although not necessary, bringing a tripod will help you to keep your images registered properly, and slow you down giving you more time to think and compose your image while fiddling with your settings.
We will shoot from 6:00-7:45pm, then head over to Mario's down the road for some post processing demos using various software techniques.
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 6:00-7:45pm. After the shoot (7:50pm), for those that would like to continue to join us, we will meet just down the road at Mario's Pizza (7:50 - 9:50) to wind down, grab some food and drink, and see a few demos using HDR techniques.
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, August 5th.
