Photoresk Photography Meetup Aachen

Looking at each other's photos

A great MeetUp hosted by Ben!

Hi everyone, I would like to make a meet-up for "photo-talk" in Aachen. It will be announced in both the Aachen and Cologne Photoresk groups, so please RSVP 'yes' in only one group.

The event is to show our work to others and share our ideas and thoughts. I am sure it will be very interesting to see and share our work with our meet up members. Indeed until this very day, we have been working very hard to take photos. Now it's time to show our great pieces.

1. Aim
- Appreciating the works of various people
- Learn the thoughts, perspectives, and considerations about others' photos
- Check other people's review on your photos
- Learn the photo skills, techniques, features and environments used in photography
- Socializing

2. Preparation
- Cost for drinks (This is a room rent requirement. There are also tea and non-alcohol drinks.)
- If you want to participate in the presentation, please prepare 2 ~ 4 pieces of your work in advance and send me a message or email ([masked]) on the day or the day before the presentation. (It does not have to be the original or a big sized file, but it must be *your* work.)
- If you don't have such a work to present, do think about taking some before the meetup! 😉 Submitting photos is not a requirement to participate. In fact, the bigger the audience, the better. If you have no photos to show, you can just come to engage in the discussion about what makes a good photo.

3. Meeting point
On 12. Oct (Saturday) 6: 30-8: 30 pm at the Cafe Zuhause (Sandkaulstraße 109/111, 52062 Aachen)

4. Program
- 6:30-7:00 Greetings and introductions
- 7:00-8:00 Photo-talk (presentation)
After a brief look at randomly arranged photos, the owners briefly introduce their photos to the others (e.g. why you want to show them, how you evaluate them, what stories can be told, etc.)
The number of presentations will be adjusted according to the number of people gathered for proper time distribution. (around 30 pieces will be introduced).
- 8:00-8:30 Q&A on each of the pictures that impressed you, giving a review, exchange opinions on the work

5. Transportation
A bus stop to the Hbf is about 5 minutes away from the pub. it takes 10 mins to the train station by bus. The direct trains to Cologne comes at 20:51, 21:51, 22:51 and 23:51, 00:51.

Please note!
As the number of people who can show their photos is limited, and as we have to buy drinks to encourage the cafe to rent to us again, please be sure to only RSVP if you are able to join (and update your RSVP if your plans change).
If you simply don't show up, it may affect your ability to participate in future limited-seat events.

A 'beamer' projector will be used to show the photos, but do be aware that light may enter through the window during the presentation, and the screen may not of the best quality. It's all for fun, and what an opportunity!

Berlin

Photoresk - Berlin Photography

Autumn colors and tropical heat

Beautiful trees and colourful leaves
Interested in photographing the yellows, oranges and reds of the leaves? If yes, you'll have to hurry before the wind blows everything away. Autumn spreads it's decent colors everywhere. But one place is even more special. It is the Späth-Arboretum of Humboldt-University Berlin, the tree collection.

Outside, there are so many different types of trees which you will rarely see arranged like this anywhere in the world!

Not enough, the  greenhouse with its  variety of plants is also worth a visit.

After the visit to the park / greenhouse we will get together for a coffee or drink to discuss what we've seen and other pjtography related issues.

What to know
The entry fee for the garden is only 1€.

What to bring
So, bring of course your camera, if you have, your macro and zoom equipment and whatever you may need for landscape AND close-ups. Of course, we will discuss, ask and explain as we go. Don't worry, if you don't have a special photo gear. I have seen stunning pictures which were taken with an instamatic.

What we will do
Supposably we will be a good mix of experts and beginners sharing the same passion and don't forget: there is always someone who knows something which all the others don't know. We also will have a small challenge for the excitement 😉

What if
We can expect the weather condition will be perfect for that day, we will meet in any case and in case its raining, there is also the greenhouse.

How to get there
By public transport: U7 till Blaschkoallee from there Bus 170 direction Baumschulenweg, get off at Baumschulenweg/ Königsheideweg

By car: use your SatNav / GPS 😉

Questions
If you have any questions, please contact the organizer or start a discussion.

What else
Attending the meetup is free but if you liked it and feel like, you may make a little donation (maybe between one and five euro) after the meetup (pay-as-you-can-and-liked-it). This will help to prepare and run future great Photoresk Meetups, tutorials and Workshops

Let's take our cameras and have a stoll over the Christmas Marked(s)

Street photography , decoration, people pre-celebrating, low and colourful light and what else to spot on a Christmas market?

Everybody seems to be already hyper-busy those days before Christmas.

Calm down this Sunday, grep your camera gear and enjoy the  Happy-Shuttercounts photo-stroll at the at two Christmas-Markets!

Even we are meeting just in front of a very nice marked, we will keep a visit for  for later and have a walk to the Kollwitzplatz first.
We will see the Advents-Ökomarkt, returning for a stroll to the Lucia Weihnachsmarkt later. A nice opportunity for taking beautiful pictures but also for photography related chats and the exchange of knowledge.

For sure we will also have the opportunity to grab one or another glühwein and have some food.

Photoresk - Cannes Photography

Cannes discovery

This city has so much to offer beyond the "Cannes for tourists", the glam and the chic. We will have a nice stroll through the old parts of Cannes,  the parts of the local people and local life. As we go we will discover places, people, life and capture moments in the wonderful changing Mediterranean light. Of course, we also will exchange our knowledge to improve our photography skills.

Open windows on Mougins

Dear all,
Mougins is famous for its artists and its beautiful village.
I suggest that we visit both Photographic exhibits (Erwan Morere at the Photography museum and the Robert Doisneau exhibit at the Espace Culturel).
We could also walk around, and shoot pictures of windows, home openings to the outside.
For the most advanced Happy Shuttercounts, we could try black-and-white pictures, like Erwan Morere.

Festival de la photographie méditerranéenne

Dear all,

Currently there is an interesting Photography festival in Nice (see website here): many small exhibits around Nice. The Festival is at its 15th edition with this year the desire to renew, not to impose a theme nor put a barrier between photographic genres.

Nice is also a beautiful city, so we'll take our camera's with us, and shoot some pictures between exhibits (indeed there will be a good walk around, and obviously one or two drinks to rest as well).

We will either meet in Cannes, and go all together to Nice with my car, or meet directly there. I'll organise this once I will know who will join (you can either post your preference on the forum of this event or private-message me).

Drink to meet-up 🙂

Dear all,
With the winter coming, days are shorter and more wet; it is therefore more difficult to organise outdoor shootings.
However, let's have a drink (apéro), so we can meet, chat, exchange our photo experiences, develop ideas for taking pictures/visiting exhibits next year, and enjoy the evening.
See you Tuesday,
Yasemin
