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.

Come and join with us at Englishmen River Falls. With all of the rain that has been falling the falls are running extremely fast and should make for some incredible photography opportunities.

 

We will be having lunch at Trees Restaurant – 1385 Alberni Highway – at noon.

Following the field trip don’t forget to enter 3 of your photos on the field trip page on the website.
