Welcome!! This group is for enthusiast photographers who want to:
a) meet other enthusiast photographers b) explore Melbourne and surrounds c) practice their photography
We are not a techie group. It's not about the size of your lens but about the joy of photography, spending time with other photographers, leaning from each other. You can work in film, digital, mirrorless, smart phone. We've even had somebody come along with a sketch-pad and pencil once.
These outings are free and run by a stellar group of organisers on their free time. Venue entry fees (where applicable) are paid by you, and coffee & cake (or beers, as the case may be) which we often do after the outing is over. Having said that, it costs $22.24 a month just to register this group. As an enthusiast but not professional photographer I don't advertise on here. As such voluntary contributions towards registration costs would be most welcome – paypal.me/nilsv.
You can share your photos - to give and receive feedback - at our private Facebook group called The Photo Hive and on the Meetup page. Each other’s photos represent a great opportunity for learning, particularly in relation to composition. Please read the group rules there and ask questions if you're not sure how to load your photos.
