Black and White Photography
Saturday 16 December

Introduction to Black and White Photography. What is Black and White Photography?
Monochrome Photography used to mean loading black and white film into the camera. Now we are not limited to the types of film we place in our cameras and each image can have a unique perspective vision. When it comes to Black and White photography, perspective and vision can set a great frame apart. Taking color out of the equation can create drama to your photos, give them an old-fashion feel, or put the focus directly on your subject. But creating powerful black and white photographs involve much more than just removing color from your final image.

50mm Lens Meetup
Saturday 17 February
Downtown San Jose - 2pm - 2 Hours
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.
