FOR BEGINNERS: Discussion, and use, of all those little things in a camera bag.

For all you beginners, we'll discuss photo accessories and how they can help your photography.  The haves will share with the have nots everything we bring to help you make decisions on whether you really need that accessory.  Filters, custom White Balance aides, right angle finders, tele-converters, extension tubes, close up filters, reverse adapters,  remote releases, hot shoe levels, rain gear, red flashlight, micro fiber cloth and anything else you more experienced photographers have in your gear bag.

We'll need both experienced and inexperienced photographers at this meetup and we will once and for all decide what's necessary and what's not.  We're not leaving without a consensus. Yea, right!

    I have enjoyed reading your calendar for several months, and was excited to finally get to attend a meeting. I just moved to Callaway VA a couple weeks ago, to share home with my Mother. Having just moved here, I am looking for work. If anybody knows of any CAD Design or Engineering openings please let me know. I would like to get new job soon.

    Surprising, there were lots of items already in my "carry all" bag. Many items, however, were "new" to me and a few went to the top of my wish list! Thanks Tom, Jon, Curt, Art, Steve, et all, for valued information. Riley and Curt, you win the prize for the coveted item.....very impressive! It's always nice to meet new people! Again, what an awesome group of people you all are! You've changed the "focus" of my life....in a great way!

    Hello! My name is Regina. I am just beginning in this photography stuff. I sort of fell into it just by my love for taking pictures of the people I love, animals and children. Photos have always been a favorite past time of mine. I look forward to this meeting.

    Maybe that explains my foot problems of late!

    1 · August 23, 2013

    • Art S.

      That's OK Tom - Sandra will carry it for you - she got her foot problem taken care of and besides I hear she is starting body building exercises :-)

  • TK S.

    and this, my friends......is why I bring my treasured guest with me!!! shhhhhh....don't tell him, please!

    1 · August 23, 2013

  • Sandra W.

    Holy mackerel! I don't have the strength to carry all that gear, plus my camera, lenses, and tripod. Either we really need to whittle it down or I'm going to have to start body building exercises.

    • Jean Poff G.

      Big guys can carry all that stuff with no problem. We need to hire a porter.
