Field Trips

The general idea of our field trips is to congregate in a chosen area with our cameras for a few hours and have a chance to discuss photography (or anything else!) with other members. This allows us to watch how others approach a shot, discuss gear and techniques, ask questions and generally get to know each other.  We generally meet at the venue at 10am and shoot until 12 then those who wish to do so gather at the chosen lunch venue. Any queries about our field trips can be sent to assignments.opc@gmail.com

The second purpose of the field trip is to contribute to the slide show at the next general meeting.  Each person attending can send in up to six images taken that day. These don’t necessarily have to be taken within the two hours – some people come earlier and some shoot in the afternoon as well. If you’re unable to attend the field trip you may also send pictures taken at that site a few days before or after. All image submissions are due by the following Sunday. The slide show allows us to enjoy each others efforts in a non-judgmental way.  Play with your images and try out some new post-processing techniques.

When you have your field trip photos ready, upload them through the member database.

We have been couped up with all the rain and now it is time to get some outdoor time.  Spider lake is a beautiful  lake with a sandy beach and will be perfect for some great opportunities for landscape shots.
