Monthly Wine Social and Critique: Wide Open

Each month, 15-20 photographers of all levels get together to discuss each other's images with emphasis on composition.  The beginners learn from the pros, the pros learn from each other and we all have a good time with wine/beer to boot.  Join us for at Vino on the Landing in Renton for a Sunday evening for our monthly Wine & Critique Social.

THIS MONTH'S THEME:  This month's assignment is "wide open". This may have a few people asking what exactly shooting wide open is. Basically it refers to the size of the opening in your lens to let light pass through. The smaller the f-stop the larger the opening. For example, if your lens is the standard 18-55mm kit lens it probably has options of f3.5 to f5.6. The f3.5 is a larger opening than the f5.6. So for this assignment we are trying for smaller numbers to have a wider opening.

RULE:  All images should be taken during the month prior to the event

Bring your 5 images on a flash drive, SD card or CD.

There is usually a waiting list on these meetups.  Please do not RSVP and not show up.  Honestly, cancelling an hour before the event is the same as being a no-show!  Preference will be given to those who have donated to the club during the current year and/or have not no-showed past Vino events.

It takes a lot of time, effort and money to keep this club going.  We ask for an annual $20 donation.  If you have not donated in 2013, please consider contributing $20 or any other amount by CLICKING ON THIS LINK or going to the meetup page and use the link on the left side of the page.

    Alan or Chris, would either of you be willing to post an image shot in daylight using flash to create a dark background, as was discussed? I'd love to see it.
