Next Meetup

4th annual Experiment with Bokeh Photography
Dear Artists and Photographers, I'd like to invite you all ones again to another popular repeating event on the subject of Bokeh Photography. Officially, this is the fourth event of this kind that I host every December and only ones a year, so try not to miss it this time coz end results can be amazing. But unlike previous events that we did in the park, this one is going to be indoors and in more controllable environment that should give you an idea how to recreate it yourself in your everyday settings at home. Also, we had always lost people in the park before, so now I am hoping to avoid that with indoor workshop. Meeting on Friday, December 21st at 6:00pm at the new location for ACME Camera(downtown). The overall idea behind this meetup is to explore artistic style of night photography with the strong emphasis on "Bokeh" - the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light. Most people have captured bokeh accidentally by doing everyday photography, but here we will focus on capturing it specifically for creative and artistic reasons. What you need to participate: ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1) DSLR or Mirrorless of any kind 2) Lens of any kind. 50mm prime works the best. 3) Tripod 4) Some props such as: Empty bottles, coffee cups, glasses, toys, anything small to get creative with when it comes to foreground. Something that you would like to use for your photographs. 5) Bokeh masters kit (optional) (https://www.amazon.com/Bokeh-Special-Effects-Prime-universal/dp/B01N5Y8JGT/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1544233884&sr=8-4&keywords=bokeh+kit) 6) Flash(optional) 7) Christmas tree lights(optional) Above are a couple of shots produced by the camera with the custom bokeh shape kit similar to the one mentioned above. All levels are welcome. Let me know if you have any questions.
