What we're about
Upcoming events (5+)
This is a black and white only photography walk. By participating, you agree to not share any of your photographs taken on the walk except in black and white for 2 weeks. This is open to photographers of all camera types...phones, digital, film. There will be two tracks. You can participate in either or both. Documentary style: we will be documenting the commuter / rail experience between and around the Dart stations in Rowlett and Garland. Art style: we will be documenting common every day items in fine art style. Specific assignments will follow. Please share tips, and links as comments to this meetup. We'll meet at the Rowlett, Texas Dart station on the tracks. You'll need to purchase tickets. The ticketing machines takes bills and cards. There is also an application you can purchase for e-tickets.
This is open to beginners only. Beginners, for the purpose of this, are photographers than cannot ensure they will have a keeper shot after photographing a ***stationary*** subject and have likely been shooting less than a year. If you have attended before, please do not sign up again. One of the interesting things about being a photo walk coordinator, is that you see common patterns. One of the patterns that I've seen is that beginners make their learning WAY TOO HARD by adding gear..typically lenses, and now days multiple bodies aren't too uncommon for "beginners", either. It's kind of like trying to learn to drive in three cars: one is a standard shift, another is a pickup truck, and a third in a muscle car. If you are a beginner and would be interested in a photo walk that is about getting correctly exposed (i.e., not too dark and not too bright) and in focus (i.e., the correct subject in the photograph is in focus) photographs, ensure that you are signed up for our meetup group for these announcements. We will be having walks with limited signup in which you may only bring a single camera and a single lens. You also need to be open minded enough to try any settings changes suggested. You'll need a camera with manual controls. If your camera is a smartphone app, you'll need an app that has manual controls. You'll need to bring a manual for your camera as well (a pdf on your phone is fine for this).
You may say "It is about time"!!! I would agree. It is time to reschedule the Pet Photography Walk. We will meet up at 10 AM on May 7th at Harry Meyers Park. Come on out and practice pet photography. Bring toys and treats and maybe a picnic. There is plenty of place to spread out, hike, and play. They even have a frisbee golf course to enjoy.
• What we'll do Camera Club will have presenters and/or discussions on a variety of photography-related topics. Each meeting will normally have 2 or 3 different presentations and members will rotate among the presentations, depending on their area of interest. • What to bring Depending on topic or subject matter, bring your camera, flash and tripod. Some meetings will not require any equipment so watch for notifications on upcoming presentations. • Important to know Camera Club meets the first Tuesday of each month.
