We will shoot using only prime (fixed focal length, non-zoom) lenses. Any type are welcome, including macro.

Purpose: To learn / experience the advantages (and disadvantages) of using a prime lens which will force you to move your body in order to change the perspective of your image.

This month's Prime Lens Meetup will be devoted to a composition technique known as Framing. Typically you will use an element in your foreground to "frame" your main subject that is in the background. This gives your image more depth (3D) and makes for a very pleasing composition.

Bring your favorite Prime Lens(es), and if you don't HAVE a prime lens, feel free to join us anyway as I will have some gaffer tape that you can use to lock your zoom (temporarily) from moving.

When in the park, just follow the signs to Lake Pointe Hall. We'll meet by the lake which is just behind Lake Pointe Hall. There are tons of places to shoot here. Most of all, we'll have some fun at this event but even more importantly, we may all learn something new!

Although this is a FREE event for all members, please RSVP, especially if your plans change and have to cancel. Members may bring a guest to use as a model or assistant.

Steve will be there to assist our members from 6:00-8:00pm. We have made the time late enough to be able to capture a sunset over the lake (weather permitting).
