Eden Photographers Club Meeting - Tuesday, March 15th @ 7pm EDT

Vaccinium Vaccinium
Are you ready to learn more about photography and share your interest in photography with your fellow Eden Fantasys friends? Yes? Well, then come join us for the inaugural Eden Photographers club meeting, which will take place on Tuesday, March 15 at 7:00 pm EDT right in this very thread. Among the things planned are:

--The theme for the photos to be posted on the EF tumblr blog next month to be critiqued by your fellow club members.

--The giving away of a $25 Eden Fantasys gift certificate.

The meeting will also be the place where you can share what you hope to get out of this club with everyone. This will help me better cater the content of the articles I’ll be posting on the Eden Clubs and Events Blog to the various interests. It will also let everyone else know your strengths and weaknesses from a photography standpoint so that we can all help each other better. Of course, like all EF meetings, it will be a fun and free-wheeling opportunity to socialize with other EFers. Being the inaugural meeting, I don't expect to get into the more technical or compositional aspects of photography during this meeting unless someone brings up something, but future meetings will cover one or more of these topics.

I am really excited to get Eden Photographers off the ground, as photography is a passion of mine, as are teaching and learning. This meeting should be a great jumping off point for what I am hoping and expecting to be a fun and rewarding experience for all of us. In the mean time, please feel free to post whatever you like in the Eden Photographers subforum with regards to photography. There will be no need to save up questions or comments for the meetings, so if you have any, visit the Eden Photographers subforum now!

In case I can't make it, what I would really love to learn about is the basics of a camera. My camera has an Auto setting which is what I use since I'm a noob. However, I'd love to get a better understanding of what all the other settings do and how they would affect pictures I take.

Try reading the articles I wrote on Understanding Aperture and Shutter Speed and Using aperture and shutter speed. Along with ISO - about which an article should come out sometime today - these are the three things that you can use to control exposure. The only other setting you need to be concerned about in the short term is white balance, and quite honestly auto white balance is your best bet (it's what I use).

Honestly, being the first meeting, there is so much I need to get through with regards to getting everyone's input so I can work to gear the club towards everyone's wants and needs, that I won't have time to talk much about cameras and actual photography. The articles should be a lot of help, though.

The ISO article has now been posted, Kindred, so hopefully they will help you understand your camera settings better.

I'm always available to answer more specific questions should my articles not address everything you ant to know.

Just a hint, but if you see anything red consider photographing it while you're on vacation.

The photos are being posted in the Share your photos thread. The photos that will be posted for anyone who is interested to critique will be found at the EF Photographers tumblr site. I'll talk about that at the Tuesday meeting and have an article on how and where to critique a day or two later.

I just wanted to give everyone who plans on attending a hint: if you've read the articles I've posted on the Eden Clubs and Events Blog, you will have a much better chance at winning the $25 gift certificate than if you haven't read them.
