    @lloyd, the presentation was really good.
    And you spoke about another presentation, which is a showcase of famous images... when will you be doing that presentation or can you share that presentation with us?

    Good subject matter. Good turn out. I come to hang with photographers, really, so the content isn't as important to me. If I get to see pretty pictures, I win.

    Apologies on behalf of Shirley and myself for not making it. We tried but I got completely lost. Totally my fault.

    P.s. Anyone looking to buy a sat nav that gets you somewhere near the vicinity of a place near where you want to go?!

    September 11, 2012

    • Shirley

      I left I note for Lloyd also, saying more or less the same, totally YOUR fault!!! :)

    I really want to attend this meeting as it's a really good topic but i am out of the country. How can I get the lesson when i get back to Dubai?

    September 6, 2012

  • Richard K.

    Hi Shirley. This will be my first meeting as well. I'm in the marina as well so I can give you a lift if you still need.

    September 6, 2012

    • Shirley

      Hi Richard, how brilliant!!! Send me your number please or an email address. Thanks.

      September 6, 2012

    • Shirley

      Found your email on here, check your inbox. :)

      September 6, 2012

  • Shirley

    This is my first meeting and I'm not sure of Dubai locations yet. Can anyone give me a lift? I'm in the Dubai Marina Walk. Thanks.

    You can find a lot of ideas for themes at photoblogchallenges.com

    Aside from techniques (have we covered bokeh?) and subjects, they also have a more general call for subjects starting with a certain letter. For instance, if asked for anything beginning with the letter 'A,' it is up to you to demonstrate your creativity.

    I would love to see more of our members' work, including that of beginners, even if there aren't always prizes to reward their efforts. If current time constraints are too restrictive, perhaps we could consider adding additional meetings for this purpose.

    Also, for beginners, I'll have a short practical exercise/camera drills 45 minutes prior to the bi-weekly posted as a separate meetup.
