This is the first of a series of short little FStops photo excursions around the LA area. They are designed to be relatively low key meet-ups where we can exercise our cameras and share ideas. We are fortunate that LA offers so many opportunities for photographers to shoot such a diverse array of subjects. Hopefully, throughout this year, we can experience quite a few of them.
In general, these outings will be held on weekdays and will feature an hour or two of photographing. (Also to be included will be visits to museums where the objective is to broaden our creative knowledge.) If anyone is interested in a critique of the dayâs work, we will arrange that as well.
Because this is the first one, I want to keep the logistics to a minimum. On Wednesday, January 23rd at 10am, we will meet at the Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve to photograph birds and the natural surroundings. I visited the site today because I heard that the Army Corps of Engineers bulldozed the place. It does look cleaner and a bit more open but that is all. The birds do not seem to mind. Right now, a huge flock of white pelicans is there.
