Bi-Weekly Photography Meetup. Theme: Cityscapes

We would like to thank our new hosts, The Shelter, for offering us place to hold our biweekly meetings. The Shelter is located in Al Quoz's Alserkal Avenue, where parking is free. If you're making your way there by public transport, you can take bus 12 from the First Gulf Bank station.

Is this your first time at one of our biweekly events? Welcome - it's free of charge! For everyone else, we suggest donating a minimum of AED 20 to cover club costs.

 

Agenda:

19:00 Announcements and introduction

19:15 Discussion Topic: Cityscapes by Sebastian Opitz
Our guest speaker for this week runs Ablaze with Light. He will talk to us about cityscape and architectural photography in Dubai, including how to shoot single exposures at night that are "ablaze with light," how to edit them in Lightroom 4, and his experience with capturing the fog in Dubai. He will then touch upon time lapse photography, including what to consider when shooting time lapses, and what gear is out there.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

20:00 Break

20:15 The Tuesday tip
Ashraf Jandali dispenses advice on how to improve your photographs.

20:30 Member showcase (Ashraf Jandali)
For this section, members show us 10 to 12 of their best shots, and answer questions about them. Want to try your hand at this in the future? Talk to an organizer.
Stay tuned after Ashraf's presentation for a big announcement!

20:45 Critique (time permitting)
Do you feel something is off with a picture you took, even though you can't tell what? Bring along the image, and our members will give you their suggestions on what you can improve. Constructive criticism is one of the best ways of improving your work!

      Santosh these events will come up again. We totally understand that you cannot be in two places at the same time... as a respite you can read through sebastians training blogs on ablazewithlight.com... or follow ashrafs work on gis fb pages where he does post his tips in video format... there are many ways to learn... epyc group is just one of the way...

    Ashraf, you made my day when you posted the 'Before / After' effect ... this is exactly what people need to see. It gives them the idea how much 'post-processing' can make of a difference.
    Sebastian proved that you don't need to be a nerd to get great results in photography.
    Cheers to both of them!
