This group is for photographers who love shooting film! It will be a great way to meet new people and share our passion for film photography. We can share our photos and give each other critique and also share our ideas for new projects or current projects we are working on. Meetups will also revolve around shooting at various locations close to LA/OC and the Inland area. So let's all geek out on film and enjoy the art of photography and film!
***Due to all the rain in February, I'm moving this event to Saturday, March 9th.
From their website:
The South Coast Botanic Garden, “The Jewel of the Peninsula”, is located on the beautiful Palos Verdes Peninsula, located 10 miles south of the Los Angeles Airport in California. Conveniently located to many South Bay communities, this 87-acre Botanic Garden has more than 2,500 different species of plants from as far away as Australia, the Mediterranean, and southern Africa. The Garden is situated in Sunset’s Zone 23, one of the most favored growing areas in the world. About 100 trees and shrubs are rare mature specimens, infrequently seen elsewhere. The wide variety of plant life provides food and shelter to an abundant wildlife and bird population, and over 200 species of birds are sighted annually. Popular features include a small lake, Mediterranean Garden, AARS Rose Garden, Water-Wise Garden, Garden for the Senses, Cactus Garden, Children’s Garden, Fuchsia Garden, Dahlia Garden, Herb Garden, and Japanese Garden. There is an attractive Wedding Lawn and two Gazebos, Events Meadow, and Frances Young Auditorium available for events. There is a picnic area located outside of the Garden gates. Free abundant parking available.
Admission is free members and $9 for non-members.
Please bring extra film and anything else you might need to shoot. Tripods, monopods and gorillapods are allowed as long as you don't create a hazard for the other visitors.
More details to come...
More than 60 local artists and performers will have their private studios and works on view at the annual Santa Monica Airport Art Walk. Throughout the day there will be pottery firing demonstrations, theater and art workshops for the whole family. Food will be offered from local restaurants & food trucks. What a great way to do some shooting and see other artists' works.
The festival is free but bring cash for food and drinks. Many of the artists will have their works for sale so bring a credit card if you think you might want to purchase some local artwork.
