The San Gabriel Mission...PHOTO Day...open to all! $5admission Parking FREE

 

Members

NOTE: this wil be taking the place for the 1 on 1...which were for 5 in a group.  I realized that this would be taking away from the rest of the groups shooting time...I apologize for that.  It's now open for anyone

I apologize if some of the dates I set did not agree with your schedules or family events.  I am not a very religious person...I must admit I forgot about Easter Sunday.  So I rearranged the DATE to accommodate all...because to me every day is a Saturday.

I know I may annoy some of you with the emails...but I cant send out 200 individual ones.  You did join this group to go on outings.  I am trying my best so the group always has things to do.  Realizing your only way of finding out is either I mail you or you check the boards every day

So please take into consideration that I am a retired Island Boy just trying to have FUn and include YOU this group in the events.  If I goof and get dates wrong because of a TYPO....don't look for a hammer and Nails...hahaha...YIKES : )

Don't worry those that signed up for the 3 on 1...I'm going to help you  : )

    We are going to have FUN...in order for those of you really new to photography to have fun you need to do a little home work now ok...just a dab! So when you get there you will know where to start and what to ask me. Look over the exterior of the camera and find out what each thing does. Go thru the Menu and have a LOOK so you will know where to adjust something if need be. 1)understand your f/stop what it does 2) what does changing ISO do 3) get an idea what the +- exposure comp does 4) what is the difference between (AV or A aperture) & (TV or S (shutter)...what is it that the camera controls in both of those modes. OK YOU HAVE 5 DAYS TO PREPARE. FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT HAVE NO TIME OR ARE COMPLETELY LOST...don't worry YOU just come to me and we will REMEDY it ok!

    So many want to get better at handling their cameras, get away from tunnel vision, learn to tell a story with pictures. I thought it might be better 1 on 1...than I realized we would never get together for a fun outing because I every Sunday would be booked helping you. So now it's OPEN for ALL this day...All DAY to ask questions, practice shooting. I you know nothing let me know.

    It's a bit of a trip on the Metro, but I lived in San Gabriel and know how nice it is there. Plus, I haven't been to the Mission.

  • larry a.

    This is a great place to photograph...everything is so close and they fixed it up. 2 blocks away is the largest grape vine and the civic auditorium is worth a few shots
