Architecture Photography Meetup

Architecture Photography Meetup

Saturday the 5th of February
Manuka - 2.30 pm - 2
Architecture Photography Architectural photography primarily focuses on the subject of buildings but can also stretch to structures like bridges and staircases. It is not only a fun genre to practise, it also plays an important role in preserving history, and is one of the most employable styles of photography. At this meetup, we will visit a few of Canberra's most iconic structures as we discuss the appropriate camera settings for architectural photography, conventions of the genre, and how to best capture a building's features.
fully booked
Street Photography Meetup

Street Photography Meetup

Saturday the 12th of February
Civic - 11am - 2 hours
Street photography encompasses a wide range of genres but focuses on capturing moments of 'real life'. At this meetup, we will practice the basics of street photography by capturing candid images in an urban setting. By the end of this event, you will be more familiar with: - Thinking about context, cropping and composition. - The effects of different shooting modes on capturing that 'decisive moment'. (When to use AV, M, or TV mode) - Guidelines for shooting other people and their property in the real world.

Film Photography Meetup

Film Photography Meetup

Saturday the 19th of February
Yarralumla - 3pm - 2 hours
Still beloved by many, film offers a different aesthetic and shooting experience than modern digital cameras. Whether you are a film regular or have an old camera stuffed in a drawer, come along to this meetup, say hello to some other like-minded photographers, and brush up on your film basics as we take a walk around some of Lake Burley Griffin. This meet-up will cover how to load most film cameras and a pre-exposed film roll will be on-hand for those who want to practise loading their cameras in a low-stakes environment.
