"You don't take a photograph, you make it." - Ansel Adams
Film photography rules when it comes to creating outstanding B&W images but you can still get amazing results from the digital format. Black and White photography is all about tone and texture as well as quality of light, patterns and lines. This meetup will feature an urban excursion as well as a discussion on maximizing your results when creating a B&W image using the digital format.

The function of the group is to learn and practice the techniques of photography. This involves learning photography not only from your guides but also by sharing knowledge with your group-mates. The intention is also to organize and get to know new people. The attendant size of the meets will be small so participants can have the opportunity to get to know all their group-mates and spend time with a guide. If you select to attend a meet and then cannot make it, please be courteous to others in the group and change your RSVP status as soon as possible to allow others who might be on the waiting list the chance to participate.

Please feel comfortable in posting your photographs and advising others; critical appraisal is helpful. What will also be appreciated are ratings and, especially, comments to individual meets and the group dynamic as a whole. This is important because it will ultimately add value to our meetings and improve our experience.
