35mm Film Photography Meetup

Saturday the 11th of December
Turner - 2:30 pm - 2 hours
Still beloved by many, 35mm 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 through the greenery of the Inner North.

Architecture Photography Meetup

Architecture Photography Meetup

Saturday the 18th of December
Civic - 10:00 am - 2 hours
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, how to best capture a building's features, and storytelling.

ABOUT CANBERRA
PHOTOGRAPHY
GROUP
Come along to our photo sessions to dust off your camera and get snap-happy with a professional photography instructor.
Brush up on your camera skills and learn new photography techniques whilst on a photo walk class with other local keen photographers!

We run two hour photography sessions based on a photography theme/technique/style and they take place in various locations across the region.
New to photography? We also run a popular 3 hour Beginners Guide to Photography Class once a month.
And once in a while we will run special niche 3 hour classes, for example, Astrophotography - so do subscribe to our newsletter to know when the next one is!

Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!

The meeting point and full details for the day are sent in the booking confirmation email to the email address you provide at time of booking.

Join the Canberra Photography Facebook Group here to share your photos after the session.



We ask that everyone attending a meetup follows social distancing guidelines:

Stay home if you're sick.
Keep 1.5 metres away from others.
Don't make unnecessary physical contact with others. Avoid physical greetings, such as handshakes, hugs and kisses.
Wash your hands regularly with alcohol-based sanitiser.
Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Use a flexed elbow or a tissue; if you use a tissue, dispose of it immediately and appropriately.

Good event. Good ideas about the technical use of Photoshop. The multiple versions of PS and the variety of different skills of the students can make the class challenging for the instructor. However Jackie was great providing individual advice for the circumstances of each student.

Great advice, I was so nervous that I forgot some of my basics but Peter didn't mind at all. He was patient and after 10minutes I had my confidence and got great results. I would happily do another course with Peter.
