What we're about
New York has a long, rich history of night photography. William Fraser, Alfred Steiglitz, Edward Steichen and other great luminaries walked the same streets we do today, capturing some of the world's most notable low light photographs.
Join us after the sun goes down to explore what your camera is capable of when you leave the shutter open long enough. We'll re-explore familiar locations to see things in a new light and work with each other to light things in new ways.
Our goal is to follow the footsteps of the original Camera Club of New York around the turn of the previous century to collaborate and forge a community for the long term that can host group shows and work together to create new works. We plan on Meetups at least every other month and more if there is demand. Come out and spend the night with us.
Here's what you need:
• A camera with manual settings. Film, digital, whatever, we like them all.
• A tripod (not for every meetup though!)
• A remote for your camera, hopefully an intervalometer that can be programmed)
That's it. We're not looking only for DSLR people, we've seen amazing stuff come from Micro 4/3 point and shoots, so don't be ashamed of your gear!
