    I had a great time at my first meetup here in my new home city of Cincinnati. I hope to meet more of you at future events. This was my first attempt at macro photography. Since I don't have a macro lens for my Sony NEX-6, I used a Fotodiox macro reverse ring adapter for my NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8 AI lens. I wasn't quite sure what to expect but I learned a few things:

    - Getting sharp focus was very difficult because even at high ISOs like 1600 and 3200 and no flash, I was using f5.6 or f8 which I found to not be small enough. I think I would've had better luck at f16 or f22, assuming I had more light to work with.

    So is next Monday a photographer's night, as well, and do our pins get us in, no charge?

    April 30, 2013

    • Connie

      Yes and yes, although I decided to get a season membership for $25, so I won't get a pin.

    Great photos everyone! Especially liked those by Fred and Dan. Nice work all. May get around to posting some of mine eventually. No time to even sort them this week.

    wonderful venue, and plenty of smart photographers and hi-end equipment.It took me 1 1/2 hrs. to figure out I should shoot flash(wish I had a ring flash!)resulting in low iso, fast shutter but most important small aperture for DOF

    Fun. Lots of folks, but we all got around each other pretty well. I was sorry I had to leave early to get to a concert at Union Terminal. Photographers' Night again next Monday.

    Sorry I missed seeing all of you. I am taking some of my little middle school photography students on a field trip there on Wednesday. Should be interesting . . . How were the temperature and humidity in there?

    K&R photographics will be there Monday night with several macro lenses, etc. that you can borrow to photograph the butterflies. The Monday night photography nights are generally less crowded and you are allowed to bring tripods. See you tomorrow night!

    Is it closed to the public that night? Only photographers? I've been down there when there are scads of people and school kids. It would be nice if it was a smaller crowd.

    April 21, 2013

    • Connie

      It is closed to the public--so no little kids, but it will NOT be a smaller crowd, in my experience. It will look like a photographers' convention!

      Thanks for the heads up.

      April 21, 2013

    I am not sure I can make this one, as I have a late-afternoon appointment, but I will attend some of the other photographer nights. Maybe I'll see some of you then!

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.
