Announcing a new Meetup for Huntington Beach Photography Meetup Group!

What: Vintage Camera Fest and HDR!

When: Sunday, September 12,[masked]:00 AM

Price: $25.00 per person

Where: Starbucks Coffee Co.
5141 Warner Ave
Huntington Beach, CA 92649

When: Sunday, September 12, 2010 - 10 AM

A little bit of the old mixed in with the new!

Where: Travel Town, Griffith Park
5200 Zoo Drive
Los Angeles, CA 90027

Dust off those old vintage film cameras and join us for a day of photographing old trains. Travel Town is a perfect location for our old cameras. I've been wanting to do this for a long time!

In addition to shooting with a vintage film camera I will be demonstrating the HDR technique with my digital camera. We will finish shooting and move to the studio in N. Hollywood at 7421 Laurel Canyon, Suite 13 (Rafael Jorge Studio) and I will demonstrate the HDR image processing technique in the computer. If time allows we will critique the images created today.

Travel Town is located in Griffith Park. See the map on their site for location.

Admission is free. Hours are 10 AM to 6 PM. We'll shoot until until mid afternoon and then head over to the studio. I expect our session to end around 5 or 6 PM. For those that are interested we can then go someplace close by for dinner together (not included).

I'll be shooting with a Leica IIIF, vintage 1956 with black and white film.

You can bring any camera that you want, digital or film.

If you do shoot with a vintage camera get your film developed and scanned into Jpegs or, like me, get into the darkroom and make some prints.

I will give some instruction on metering and proper exposure, filters, etc. I'll have a few light meters with me for you to use if you need one.

Meet: For the OC photographers we can meet at Starbucks, Huntington Beach and carpool up together. We will meet at Starbucks at 10 AM and carpool up to Griffith Park. We will be leaving Starbucks no later than 10:15 AM. If you are running late we'll be gone and you can meet us at Travel Town. PLEASE confirm with me if you want to carpool so I can get a handle on how many photographers to expect at Starbucks.

If you are coming from LA you can meet us at Travel Town. We should arrive around 11:30 and be easy to spot.

Lets have some fun!

I am charging $25 for this full day Meetup workshop. Price includes a discount code to purchase the Photomatix HDR software.
