This closed group aims to bring together small groups of photographers, typically in a studio, or a location setting, to learn and explore all aspects of model photography or people in general. The emphasis is on lighting and posing individual and we generally hire models to help folks practice and build quality portfolio images.
Meetups will vary in theme while covering a range of interests all dealing with photography of male and female models (fitness, boudoir, pin-up, glamour, fashion, art nudes, creative themes, cosplay ...). Depending on the host, the light may be sophisticated studio lighting, natural light or a combination.
There will typically be a cost for these sessions as we aim to hire reliable models, need to cover studio fees and some hosts may include an honorarium.
This is a special interest group aimed at enhancing your photographic skills and portfolio. You must be accepted as a member and remain active. We do not permit people to hang around just to view pretty pictures.
Given that a percentage of the events will include some nudes, erotica, and more risque images taken during the Meetups and share for purposes of learning and getting feedback only members can participate and view content.
While there is no fee to join this group, it is a special interest subset of a main group, so members must FIRST be a paid up member of the "Ottawa Photography Meetup" in good standing.
-------------------- Special NOTE: This group has just been reactivated by Meetup Headquarters. I will need to assess it's ongoing role relative to the new GroupSpace site at http://groupspaces.com/OttawaPhotoMeetups/
