|Event Date / Time:|
A walk about the character rich city of Hamilton with our very own Kevin Chan as the leader of this group. More details will be released and discussed at the next regular meeting.
Challenge yourself to get outside your comfort zone. Try new things - like fixed focus for quick snaps with no auto focus getting in the way of the decisive moment. Capture some great urban images for diversity. And best of all - have fun!
Meetup at the QEP for 9:30am for car pooling or go directly to the Tim Hortons located at 35 King St E, Hamilton, ON L8N 4A9.
What to bring? I suggest a small and as inconspicuous a camera as possible, with a full frame equivalent lens focal length of about 35 - 50mm - fixed.
Rather than relying on autofocus and metering - try having everything fixed - focus and exposure - so your camera does not have to pause to think about the shot and possibly miss focus or exposure. Also, try to look for situations that may be developing and try to take the shot just at the right moment - the decisive moment. For urban type shots, try to capture something that is telling a story and not just a record of a place.
