50mm Lens Meetup

50mm Lens Meetup

Saturday 08 June
Downtown Lafayette - 10am - 2 Hours
Lafayette Photography Group
Mallory Stanford
The 50mm lens is one of the flexible and useful lenses in any photographer’s gear bag. It is neither a wide-angle or telephoto lens, but allows the camera to see on the same scale as your eye. As such, it can be used for a variety of styles, from landscape and street photography to portrait and product photography. In this meetup, we’ll review the basic camera settings. We’ll then cover some of the advantages of shooting with a prime lens, and some basic techniques to using the 50mm lens. As always, there will be ample opportunities for you to put your new knowledge into practice.

This meetup goes over some basic dos and don'ts for posing and looks at issues to do with shooting in daylight for the best results.

Feel free to invite your family or friends to join us as models for this meetup. If you don't have anyone to bring along, no worries; we can all take photos of each other within the group. It's all about having a great time together!

You will preferably need a normal, 85mm or longer lens, or a zoom. If you have a wide-angle this can also be used as we will be also looking at environmental portraits.

Nature Photography Meetup

Nature Photography Meetup

Saturday 03 August
Northeastern corner of Lafayette - 10am - 2 Hours
Lafayette Photography Group
Mallory Stanford
Join this session for tips on how to use your camera settings to creatively capture nature in a visually interesting way. We will be looking at composition, focus, and colour.

Many professional offices and places of business have large prints gracing their wall space of things such as fields of flowers, a butterfly perched on a leaf, and a single dew drop on a rose petal. These beautiful images are all around us in nature. It just takes that special "eye" to not only see it but to capture it in a way that will turn that simple little piece of nature into a beautiful piece of art. We will learn how to use different angles, light and shadows, and settings to make subjects pop.
