Photo Club #2

Event moved due forecast of bad weather.

Salaam All, 

I would like to thank those who attended the first photo walk meetup. It was successful and I am encouraged to plan the next one. The theme of the meetup is to do a photo walk and take lots of pictures, while learning the camera and its usage better in the process.

The second meetup will start from the London Bridge station and we will work our way around the river, cross the river over Tower Bridge and find a place to stop and review the pictures on the other side of the bridge. 

Ideally, you need to have a DSLR camera for this or a bridge camera that allows you to do manual settings is good enough too. Compact cameras are not suitable for this photo walk. 

The group will remain the same size of five. In this meetup we will discuss some further exposure theory and do low-light photography. That is why I have chosen the time from 2pm to 4m which is roughly the sunset time these days. For this photo walk you will also need a tripod. If you have DSLR then this is an accessory you should invest in. For the meetup you could buy a cheap one like this:

This meetup is suited to beginners and those who want to understand their DSLR cameras better. If you are an accomplished photographer you would have little to learn but may be you can teach us something.

Meeting point: We will meet at the Starbucks on the Tooley Street exit of the London Bridge station. 

Thanks

Raza

    It was just what I needed: basic photography tutorial in comfortable surroundings with a great teacher. The subject matter was relevant to the skills I want to learn and it was done at a good pace.

    Those who have confirmed are fine. Can I request all those who are on the attending list to confirm they will be able to attend. Those on the waiting list who are available to attend can also let me know and I'll let them in as spaces open before the event.

    Raza, have you checked weather for sunday.. heavy rain LOL whole day mate.

    January 2, 2014

    • Raza

      You are right Saqib. More problematic then the chances of rain is the gusty winds. Thanks for the information. I'll leave it until Saturday morning and if the weather prediction changes we will keep it on.

      Good, I think if people upload them on Instagram and share id's that will be good to see and compare the work :-)

      December 22, 2013

  • Saqib

    Worth looking into increasing group size :-)

    • Raza

      Don't worry Saqib, keep that time slot free as there last minute openings.

    Can I request attendees to mention the camera they will bring to the walk? I put that in as a question and some attendees seem to have missed it. Thanks.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
