Street Photography Meetup

Street Photography Meetup

Sunday the 24th of October
200 South McDowell Street, Raleigh, NC 27601 - 3:00 pm - 2 hours
Our Goal for this Meet up is to introduce New photographers, whether you’re a hobbyist or just getting started into the Amazingly Beautiful world of Photography. We will focus on how to properly frame a subject while applying a few techniques to help everyone comprehend why and how it works. This is your time to learn and gain a proper understanding of “Composition”. Street photography has to be real, unposed moments. Which showcases both the lives and the emotions of subjects at a given moment. Photographing a person, place or thing can also be Street Photography. If your image can make the viewer pause and ask questions, then it is often considered to be successful street photography. The motive should be to tell a story through your work and creativity document what is happening right in front of you.

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 around Allen Town.

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.

The event was great. Cammel did a great job making the participants feel at ease and tried to keep us all focused on trying to locate macro photography subjects. He also asked his assistant to attend later in the program to provide us the opportunity to photograph her using our macro lenses. It was a great class.

It was nice to meet local photographers. I would have liked some staged shots to review the what, why, and how of the photo. We could then compare photos with the group.
