    Default Raffles Photoclub Meeting Jan 15

    I'm not sure whether to post this here or in the general discussions. Technically its a bit of both, starting off with general talk, and then commencing to a meet. And I guess, since it is kinda a 'gathering'... mods, if its a mistake, do let me know.

    Greetings photographers.

    Its been a while... almost 4 months actually, since I last conducted an outing. College work was overwhelming the past semester.

    But a new year has begun, and this is also the chance to bag some (more) awards. Yes, all the major awards shows are soon to announce their deadlines, and we must be prepared this time.

    Now technically you folks here aren't Raffles Photoclub members, but we are seeking to expand out. Besides, 'Raffles Photoclub' is just a name. Any photographer who wishes to join is most welcomed to do so.

    We are pretty much like any other group here that decides to hosts outings( Tangshooters, Sunchasers etc).
    In fact, I have hosted two outings here where there were a combined group of clubsnap photographers, and raffles photographers. One of them was at the Zoo, and the last one was the iLight Marina Bay event.
    The key difference is that we participate in various competitions too, and actively exhibit our photos in public whenever given an opportunity.

    So, This is pretty much an open invite for any clubsnap member who wishes to join our activities. Of course, there is no payment for membership or outings(except for ones where you have to pay entry fee e.g. Zoo)

    1. We conduct outings at least once a week, generally on saturdays(exceptions for specific events)

    2. Photos taken during the outings are shared for constrictive criticisms/feedback here : Link
    Please state that you wish feedback on the photos. Of course, you can just post them here or on flickr or deviantart etc. The internet has endless possibilities.
    The first club meeting will be held in our old traditional way, meeting in class and discussing about the projects we plan to do for the semester.

    3. First meet of every semester(every three months) is usually reserved for discussion about the projects we will undertake, competition discussions and participation, and noting down key events that are worth photographing.

    4. New members gain experience by joining us on our outings, because we also share the various techniques of photography, covering all categories : Macro, Landscape, Portrait, Street, Urban etc...not all at once of course.
    Along with that, we also undertake different styles of photography, BW, Lomo, HDR, InfraRed, PhotoManipulations, Illusions etc.
    Do keep in mind that this is NOT a Tutorial class. There are no notes or references. Knowledge is just passed around by talking and guiding the photographer, explaining the settings of their camera etc.


    That's pretty much it.
    Sooo,
    if you are a newbie who wishes to learn photography, you could pair up with us.
    if you are an amateur who wishes to expand, join us.
    if you are pro just looking out for fun, or willing to share knowledge, we've got space

    2 weeks notice is almost impossible since I have no way of knowing when my college duties will require more attention....the max I can do is a 6 day advance notice
    Don't worry too much about missing this discussion, you can always join us for our outings. I promise to notify well in advance

    No deadline, if you have time then just show up at the specified location. That's it.

    Sure. It technically depends on the outing. Some will be early morning..like 6am, others can be in the late evening.

    Whenever one fits your timetable, drop by with the camera
