Hello all LA Street Photographers,
Venice Beach is a planet of its own, with people from all walks of life. Perfect place for people watching, it is by extension also a perfect place for street photography. If you feel shy pointing your camera at someone's face, then the sheer number of people, tourists, and street performers on a sunny sunday afternoon should make you less nervous.
We will be meeting Sunday 06/24/12 at 2:15pm in front of the Subway parking lot and walk down in direction of the Venice Beach Pier. Street parking is free on Sunday, and you may have to park a couple of blocks away and walk over. We won't be leaving until 3pm to give the time for people to get situated. From 2:15pm - 3pm, we can take the time for some introductions and have a Q&A session for those who have questions about camera settings, etc.
What to bring: comfortable shoes, water, sunscreen, extra memory cards and extra batteries. I would recommend leaving the heavy gear at home, and just bring one compact body and lens. Being inconspicuous always works to your advantage...
