Finally we got the people, the equipment and our act together.
After discussing with Keerthi and Jon yesterday on the last Photography in Berlin session we finally have a plan ...
We will meet on Sunday at 13:30 at my place:
Winterfeldtstr. 24 - just 450 meter from the Nollendorf Platz (U1,U2,U3,U4)
I have a spacious living room with a high ceiling (3,90 m) and wide white walls (5 m) which provide a good background for shooting. Two large windows on one side bring in light and give good light conditions.
Everybody brings his or her camera and other equipment they can contribute to the cause. (I have big reflectors, other flashes or tripods. Please post your suggestions what could come in handy and what you could contribute to the shooting)
After coming together and getting an overview about the equipment available and checking out the place and light conditions, we will go around the corner to one of the many ethnic restaurants in the vicinity and discuss over lunch the secrets and recommendations about portrait photography.
Then we will go back to our freshly inaugurated self-made photo studio and get down to work taking (portrait) pictures of each other. (So bring also some more cloth or items if you do not want to end up with the same T-shirt on all pictures.). I will provide drinks and snack and you can either add some drinkable and eatable to the list or you just leave some money for restocking.
The goal is to enjoy an interesting day, improve of our photography skills, take loads of good pictures (people, portrait) and end up also with a better and more varied stock of pictures of ourselves for private or professional (e.g. applications) reason by exchanging the pictures we took with the ones the others took.
For everybody who can't make it on Sunday afternoon, the next day around 11:00 (or later) will be the next chance to join (or to continue).
PLEASE, leave your comment, response, hints and suggestions. And if you will not able to make it this time. Look out for the next photo-shooting-session.
Coming up: Stock Photography or: How to Publish our Photos and trying to make some Money with it.
Please be aware that the personal safety of you and your guest(s) is your responsibility for the duration of the above mentioned Photography in Berlin meet up event. Thanks!
