Seacoast Photographers Group Monthly Meetup

Special Presentation:
This month, venerable photographers Richard Moore and Roger Goun will be showing off and discussing their FujiFilm and Leica rangefinders, respectively.  These rangefinder-style mirrorless cameras are having an increasingly large impact on photography enthusiasts because of their advantages in size, weight, and price, while maintaining stunningly good image quality.

We'll see example photographs, hear how they compare to SLRs under a variety of circumstances, and get our burning questions answered by three exceptional photographers who have put these cameras, and SLRs before them, through their paces.

Monthly Challenge:
Our challenge for this month's meeting is Out the Window. Between now and the meeting, take up to three photographs which somehow speak to your interpretation of the subject - please feel free to take great liberty with your interpretation of the subject.

Don't be shy, we have a very encouraging group of critics and we'll all learn something from the experience. Most of all, have fun shooting!

    O.K. I ALSO had a problem hearing what was being said (by those who were "miked") and I was in the second row! The acoustics were really bad with the reverberation in the sound system. I had less of a problem when those in the audience spoke up. I realize that it's a large hall, but we are sitting close together (no one in the balconies) so maybe all we have to do is to speak loudly. But then, if someone is in the middle of the group, the sound goes forward and people in back can't hear. The speakers would have to go to the front and face the group. Perhaps at the next meeting we should see what works best.

    Great presentations, thank you! Even with mics, though the town hall is acoustically challenging for me as well.

    I had trouble with the acoustics, in the Town Hall location as well. Only understood about half of the talks...

    Nice to be back in the town hall again. Very interesting cameras and great presentations. A little difficult to hear with the new sound system and echo.

    I had difficulty following the presentation because of echoes in the town hall auditorium.

    Is it possible to change/alter my submissions for the monthly challenge? It does not look like this can be done on the photomeets site.

  • Sharon H.

    I won't be able to attend Thursday meet ups. I've started back to school and classes are on Thursday nights. Can I still attend outings?

    Is Sept meeting cancelled? where is/was it being held?

  • Tony N.

    What happened to all the messages that were here?

    • John

      This is next month's meeting. I had to cancel this month's meetup because so many folks were writing to say it looked like the meeting was still on. Unfortunately, Meetup doesn't deal with past and cancelled meetings very well, or at least not to our benefit and need.

      September 19, 2013

    • Tony N.

      OK - I thought we might be trying to arrange a social get together somewhere.
