Have you wondered what Legal and what is Not ?  Wondered how it all works on the rules we must abide by with Street photography?  

Our club doesnt claim to know the right or wrong ways.  We dont know the full information legally but we have done some research and found the following articles on line and some seem to have some legal information and terminology its up to you the photographer to do your research and find out your rights, but here is a starting point.

Click on these 4  links or on the two button links below them.  There is some great information in these articles

So what will we do you might ask... 

Well a couple of our members have kindly offered to let us use their  have some softbox and umbrella lighting and have 2 reflectors and 2 flashes - for PORTRAIT fun -  (We hope some of those members who are very versed in Portraits might like to come and give us not so versed some instructions and help us out so we all learn and have some fun). 

 

We plan to have 3 static stations (that makes 9 people in portraits fun ) ie. 

  

 

  • 1 person models

  • 1 person photographs

  • 1 person holds the reflector you take some shots then do a swap... (that way we can be covid compliant) then move on to the next one... we hope to have some props for the models like hats or mask or wings etc... if you have anything you would like to share, bring it along.  We will have some dettol wipes and hand sanitizer so we are also covid compliant. 

 

We hope to have a still life table too to set up some flash photography (if you have some props to photography by all means bring some along) , or some oil n water in pyrex dish photography like this ...   So if we get more than 9 people we can set up around the still life tables ...   

 

 

We will have some instructions for each table on how to do what is there.   They will be laminated so they can be wiped down between uses.

 

What you need to bring.

1.  your camera

2.  your tripod

3. if you have a flash or reflector 

4. by all means bring them along and any props you might like to use - hat, clothing, still life subjects its up to you

 

 

  It's all about having some fun and learning new things. The only thing we ask is if you wouldn't mind letting us know in advance so we can plan the set up etc.
