What we're about
My Photo Group is your photo group.
If you are looking to advance your knowledge of photography and photo editing then this group may be right for you. We hold regular classes on a wide range of photographic topics, from camera use and lighting to editing and more.
Browse through our pages (http://www.meetup.com/my-photo-group/about/) to see what My Photo Group is about. To see if this group is for you, start with "Is this group for me? (http://www.meetup.com/My-Photo-Group/pages/Is_this_group_for_me%3F/)". You might also want to view some of our past meetups (http://www.meetup.com/my-photo-group/events/past/?scroll=true) to get an idea of what we have done.
Our goal is to turn ideas into meetups, meetups into usable images and ultimately make friends along the way. All skill levels are welcomed. Although this group is geared towards the dSLR shooter, point-and-shoot and mirrorless camera users are welcome.
We are working at being a member motivated group and encourage advanced photographers to help coach the beginners. If there's an event you want to promote, feel free to announce it. We can set up an event on the calendar and designate you as the host. All we ask is that you communicate clearly with the membership and follow through with the hosting. To learn more, read about our "Share, Learn, Grow (http://www.meetup.com/My-Photo-Group/pages/Share%2C_Learn%2C_Grow_-_Become_an_event_host)" program.
Partnership is also important to this group. We work closely with other area photography groups and encourage our members to participate in those groups as well. Currently we have a close working relationship with the following groups (in no particular order).
Shutter-Buds (http://www.meetup.com/Shutter-Buds/) - Sue Fenton and the rest of the team do a fantastic job hosting fun, educational and creative shoots, workshops, spontaneous events, as well as internet based social interaction. You NEED to be a member of this group.
Photography Workshops and Strobist Off-Camera Flash (http://www.meetup.com/Photography-Workshops-and-Strobist-Off-Camera-Flash/) - This group is dedicated to learning and teaching the art of photography and off-camera flash through the workshop format. Bob Harrington is a local pro with a flare of making learning a fun and enjoyable venture.
Milford Photography Group (http://www.meetup.com/milfordphotography/) - Supported and operated by one of the area's best photography stores (IMO) and their resident 'good guy' Jesse Thompson, this meet up group offers fun meet ups, shoot-a-bouts & workshops. All skill and experience levels welcome!
Mid-CT Photography Meetup Group (http://www.meetup.com/Mid-CT-Photography-Meetup/) - This group welcomes photographers of all levels. They foster an atmosphere of learning, sharing and, most of all, fun. Their goal is to provide a variety of shoots so that there is something for everyone and to encourage members to try something new.
