What we're about

This group is all about photography.

We have online events and in-person events which include photo walks in the Pittsburgh area or driving trips to interesting venues. We also meet monthly for a social event and to talk photography. Anyone can suggest and/or lead an event. We love participation!

Join us if you have a passion for taking photographs of any kind with anything.

In the past, dues for this group have been $5/year, with new members receiving a 30-day free trial. But at this time, dues are not being collected. This may change in the future.

Location visible to members

Fun shots - Go anywhere, shoot anything (family friendly) and upload it because you're proud of it.

Theme Album OCTOBER, 2022: Autumn

Location visible to members

You may post to this album, even if you did not RSVP before the album opened and closed.

If you want feedback on any photo in the monthly theme or the fun shots albums, add OTC (Open to Critiquing) to the caption or a comment.

If it is OK with you to have other members attempt to retouch your photo, add OTR (Open to Retouching) to a caption or comment. That will give permission to copy your photo, retouch it and post it into the same album for comparison, along with notes on what was done.

Unless a member has added OTC to his/her image, only positive comments are permitted. Even with OTC, please write constructive criticism by stating specifics of how you think the image could be improved rather than making a list of negative attributes.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This album is for fun shots, of the theme, they don't need to be artistic. This is for all the fun, whimsical stuff we see & photograph. It's a good place for beginners to start posting pictures without critiques.

THE ALBUM WILL NOT BE AVAILBLE FOR POSTING/UPLOADING PICTURES UNTIL 10PM ON THE 1ST!

You are able to post photos, anytime, during the specified month!

McConnells Mill Walk

Needs a location

Greetings Photogs,

Weather was not good for the first meeting scheduled, so we’ll try again.

We will meet at the pavilion (restrooms) at the top of the trail across from the parking lot.

Be mindful of conditions on the trail, they may be slippy. Dress comfortably for trail walking and wet surfaces.

Lots to see from the trails and the mill itself.

Since turnout was nil going into the last meeting, I did not provide updates.

Updates about the weather will be provided as we get closer to the date.

Look forward to seeing yinz there.

Carrie Furnace Photo Safari

Needs a location

Hi everyone. Our last meetup at the Carrie Furnace was for the tour. This meetup is for the 3 hour Photo Safari that allows for participants to explore the site in an unstructured manner. See the page here for more info and to purchase a ticket ($30):

https://riversofsteel.com/experiences/workshops/photo-safaris/

The page states the following:

"The interplay of light and seasonality at the Carrie Furnaces offer endless perspectives of this industrial muse. These three-hour photo safaris are appropriate for both novice and experienced photographers who crave an “open” shooting experience with very little interruption, guidance, or interference. Take your time and line up the perfect image of the historic Carrie Furnaces!"

I checked with the Rivers of Steel folks a couple of days ago, and they said there were about 20 openings for the remaining 2 safari workshops. The last one of the year is on November 6th if you are interested but cannot make it to the October 16th event.

Since this is not a tour and more time can be spent in any given area, you may want to bring a tripod for longer exposures in darker areas. If there are any questions, let me know in the comments. Thanks.
