What we're about
If, like me, you’re interested in night photography or have simply always wondered how people take photos in the dark without a flash, this is the group for you. This group is for those who are keen to explore the city after the sun goes down…when everything interesting happens!
From beginners looking to give low light photography a try for the first time, to experienced photographers who never stray from ‘bulb’ mode, I hope this will be the meetup group for you to meet like-minded photographers to learn, hopefully improve, and have fun…all in a relaxed, informal environment.
I propose to have once-monthly meetups to start with, and I invite ideas for locations or types of photography you’d like us to concentrate on. My particular thing is urban, slightly grungy locations ( http://www.flickr.com/photos/justin_carey/ ) but if you have a particular interest please do make a suggestion either here or by messaging me. This group is not for sunset shooters (although we may take advantage of the very last of the ‘blue hour’ on occasions), so meetups are likely to be late evening, particularly in the summer months.
For beginners, you’ll need lots of layers, sturdy comfortable shoes and preferably a tripod. Everyone will need a friendly, enthusiastic attitude and a profile photo.
I’m excited to meet people who are as interested in night photography as I am and look forward to meeting and learning from you all on a meetup very soon. This group will only be as good as its members, so thanks in advance for being awesome! :-)
NB: The only strict rule of admission to the group is that you have a profile photo showing your face, from which you can be easily identified. If your membership is declined this will be the reason why. Thanks for your understanding and co-operation with this.
