    TIME UPDATE: The March 16th Photowalk will begin at 9am, instead of our regular 10am! LOCATION UPDATE: The March photowalk will be at the NAVY YARD! We contacted them and gotten permission to walk around inside and shoot photos. For those of you that haven't been there, there are often some pretty neat Navy ships docked there, so hopefully we'll be able to get some neat shots of those, as well as some of the beautiful buildings inside the Yard. Bring a wide-angle lens with you and prepare to walk around! Feel free to bring a friend or two :) Parking is available inside the Navy Yard (there should be plenty of spots). Meet near the Broad Street Gate (inside the yard) at 10am sharp. Be prepared to walk a lot - the Navy Yard is huge and there's lots to see! ================================================ Come practice your photography, learn new tips, and meet fellow shutterbugs in Fairmount!

  • LightPainting at Swann Fountain (Parkway 100 Event!)

    swann memorial fountain

    Dear Friends, This coming Friday, Oct 26th marks a very special occasion in Philadelphia history. It is the 100th anniversary – to the day – of the first day the entire Benjamin Franklin Parkway was opened for the first time. As some of you know, the Parkway Council has been celebrating the establishment of one of the world’s great cultural districts with a year-long celebration of the Parkway. (http://www.parkway100.org/events/) This Friday is the grand centerpiece of this year-long celebration, the Parkway Soiree, a huge, block-party style festival with 100 activities to mark the 100 years of the Parkway. I am honored to have been asked by the Parkway100 team to host a special night-time photo event as part of these celebrations. I will be leading 2 sessions of a special-edition photo class called LIGHTPAINTING AT SWANN FOUNTAIN. These are both free and open to the public, and of course all members of the Fairmount Photo Club are warmly invited to attend. If you’ve ever been to one of our prior lightpainting sessions, or have wanted to shoot Philadelphia landmarks at night, you know this is going to be a great opportunity to capture some beautiful shots with a fun group of friends. I invite you all to join us this Friday Oct. 26th at 6pm or 7pm at Swann Memorial Fountain in Logan Circle. Bring your camera, a tripod, a remote shutter release if you have one, and as many bright lights as you can find (flashlights or similar brightness – small keychain lights won’t work unfortunately). See you all Friday! Pano Details: Friday, Oct 26th Swann Memorial Fountain in Logan Circle 6pm (First Session) 7pm (Second Session) Bring: 1) Camera 2) Tripod 3) Backup Batteries 4) Lights
