Welcome to the Madison Photography Meetup Group.
This group is for those just beginning with photography to those who are advanced..and anyone in between. Digital and film. We hope this will be a great opportunity to make new friends, learn and practice photography, enjoy getting out and seeing new sites.
The meetups are focused on exploring the Madison area while working on our photography skills. We also incorporate hands-on workshops as well.
We're an open and friendly group of photographers at all levels who share a love of photography, a desire to learn something new and to meet new people. Please respect your fellow members, don't solicit or spam the discussion board or direct messages. Constructive criticism of images can be helpful, but be sensitive to the fact that not everyone wants or is prepared for the hard-hat treatment. So keep it nice, but if you think you have a suggestion that would help someone out then by all means go ahead.
Our monthly meetup is where you'll see intriguing and inspirational photos from our members and have the opportunity to show your images as well. This meetup is also where we discuss tips and types of photography and give you a theme to work on for the following month.
The subject of your pictures is of course up to you. The monthly technique presentation is intended to be somewhat of a homework assignment for you to practice over the following month, so submit these pictures if you were able to participate. Otherwise anything goes, but please keep it PG-13. You can share your photos directly thru Meetup or via our Flickr group.
Photography encompasses a wide range of topics, interests and equipment. Not every meetup will appeal to all members, but we do try to plan events that will attract at least 5-10 members. Members can suggest meetups online. Please allow adequate advance notice (at least 7-10 days is recommended, 4 weeks is preferred) and a host or organizer attending is required. When setting up a meetup, please also include these details: Where to meet, specifics on how to find the host, what you'll be doing, any special instructions including flash or tripod use. With this info in place and organizer approval, your meetup will be announced.
Please keep your meetup responses current, it makes it easier for us to plan and host events. Particularly where attendance is limited, updating your RSVP if you're not able to attend may open up a slot for another member.
We look forward to seeing you at the meetups, hearing from you all and please feel free to use the discussion/message board for ideas or feedback. You are always welcome to contact us as well.
