This extended virtual meetup allow every member sufficient time to plan for your photographs. We will try this, if members feel the period is too long, we could shorten. Please submit your inputs.
Topics will range from easy to difficult, from ordinary to hard, from boring to challenging. If you have topics for next weekly challenges, please feel free to suggest in the meetup discussion.
“Each meetup will feature different concepts and themes to help take your technique from automatic-only to Free-Capture Photography.” To learn and practise the techniques of photography, feel free to learn from other members' photos, combine with or create your own styles.
ASSIGNMENT # 2
- SUMMER ACTIVITIES and STREET PHOTOGRAPHY
1 Your SUBJECTS related to SUMMER ACTIVITIES
2 Locations : ANY WHERE
3 You are documenting a summer and street activity, and your photo is not having the individual identifiable (with more than 10%, example) in your photo without his/her consent, unless the person is for example a performer or part of a parade or they could not be possible excluded from your photo. When taking photos involving people you do not know, please respect their privacy and others in your vicinities and unless you have a proper signed model release or verbal agreement between you and the party, your photos of an individual could be unlawful if used for personal uses, for sales or non-commercial uses; by RSVP, you agree and adhere to this general rule of photography.
QUESTION is who could you photograph in public without a model release ? You could photograph performers, general activities (ex. baseball game in action, but not the individual player's face, a coffee shop's patio filled with people, but not a person drinking his/her drink), etc. Basically, you take a general "best" scene of the activities or use your "soft focus" techniques to blur/semi-blur out the background people - example a coffee cup with blurred background.
Photo Suggestions :
1 Canada Day Celebration at Canada Place July 1st, or similar you preferred
2 in Parks, Trails, Beach, on Water, Playing Fields, Streets, etc. where "summer activities are occurring.
Again I have leave this open, so you could create your works.
Once you have RSVP, you could begin taking photos and upload your photos from Thursday until the end. You could submit one or multiple entries, more is always better for you.
Please post Constructive Critics or Appraising of others' photos. To learn and to practise the techniques of photography, feel free to learn from other members' photos, combine with or create your own styles.
