    Default 50+36 @ 2

    Hi guys and gals,

    This is the 2nd installation with regard to the first. This is a challenge to the current crop of people, some who did not even took a picture with film or prime len. After the shoot we will go for lunch and share our experience if you are keen.


    Intentions of this event:
    1. Seek to improve exposure and composing techniques
    2. Meet more friends

    Rules for this event
    1. Any camera, be it digital or film, 35mm or medium or even large format
    2. Any film, be it B&W, colour slide or negative
    3. 36 exposures, other format users are also restricted to 36 exposures
    4. 1 prime len of 50mm or equal in 35mm format. If no 50mm prime bring another prime of your choice. For zoom users fix your zoom to 50mm (or the nearest).
    5. No deletion of pictures allowed. Each digital user will be checked with their picture count (image numbering) before and after the event.
    6. No change of ISO (for digital users) or film (for film users).
    7. No cropping allowed (if not as well as a zoom)
    8. Restriction to 36 exposure regardless of the number of camera bodies you have.


    Location: Little India
    Date: 5th March 2005
    Time: 9.30am - 3.30pm
    Meetup Point: Little India MRT
    Slots: 8 Max

    Do note that there may be wet weather as nowadays the sky is not too fine. We might have to wait till rain stop. Alternatively, you can also bring your photos along where we can share during lunch or while waiting for the rain to stop (touch wood). If any of you (participant) happen to have a vehicle like a van or pickup, I will be glad to bring a ladder along for whatever shots you need to take on it You will be amused how much a ladder can do to capture a particular scene/subject.


    Please PM me your particulars if you are interested. I will put up 10 names (with 2 as reservations in case someone cannot make it this time) asap. I will need the following information as confirmation that you would come. Be assured that your personal information will not be given out without your permission:


    1. Real Name
    2. Email
    3. Mobile Contact (or home contact if not available)


    The tentative list for the outing according to whoever PM me first:
    1. theITguy / Christopher / theitguy@starhub.net.sg
    2. chenchengcai / Chris
    3. Tim (chenchengcai's friend)
    4. icarus / James
    5. edlye / Ed
    6. wormz777 / Andrew
    7. tech_girl
    8. ivantay
    9. GENO (reserved for expressing interest by Wed 2359hr :P )


    Sorry to all others who may want to attend. I will try to organise 2 trips per weekend to let those who are unable to make it on Sat to go too. Not too experience as an organiser, so just want to keep group smaller


    Anything not sure, please do ask.

    Hi fengwei,

    I am wary of the work commitments, afterall it is the job that most are having that pays for our hobby As much as possible I would try to organise 2 trips per weekend, which allows me to see the same things twice, hopefully from many other angles too.

    (The next trip will be on a Sunday lah, since Sat I going to Ubin )

    Okay. Actually either Sat or Sun would be good for me next weekend I'll bring along my 50mm manual lens and try to get the feeling of manual settings

    Cheers!

    Just got back. Today Little India happening, got smoke and FireFighters. Some of us take the chance to be news reporter and got questioned by the police Lucky no one is injured (I suppose). The place is fun and exciting. I will be going down another day.

    This outing in fact got 10 person inclusive of myself. Some developed their photos already, some did not finish while I FINALLY finished my bloody 36 exposures after 3 session of outing We had fun talking (yar I talked a lot ) and sharing our equipment like the Nikon F4 with V Grip. One even brought a old rangefinder from the 50s and shoot manual. Next outing I hope to see some Contax and Leica users too? hehe


    Some requesting to abandon the 50mm concept. Some requesting to allow use of zoom lens with zooming. Those who went to any one of the 3 outings, I did not really "forced" you to use a 50mm, as I know there are some who do not have one.

    But I have to reinforce the concept behind this outing, that is improving your framing and picture, while learning to work with restrictions.

    I would say that you can choose one of the following:
    1. Use a 50mm prime
    2. Use another prime of your choice
    3. Use a zoom but you fixed it to 50mm thoughout the outing
    4. Use a zoom but you fixed it at any one focal length you prefer thoughout the outing


    If you choose to use zooms (somehow you cheated or whatever), it does defeat the purpose of trying to make the best or test the limits of your equipment, that is a fixed focal length lens (be it prime or zoom) and 36 exposures. I will update the requirement for the next outing to ensure that more people can join and basically, have fun and push our skills to a new level.
