The Smartphone, Cell Phone & Point ‘n Shoot Photowalk
June 18th, 20011 : 9am

Saturday, June 18th 2011 at 9:00am, we will meet at Historic Wheeler Farm for a smartphone, cell phone and point ‘n shoot photowalk. The objective is to make beautiful images, challenge ourselves, share our work and have a lot of fun. Wheeler Farm has a lot of room for photographers to wander with a variety of things to shoot such as animals, rivers, creeks, foliage, farm equipment, textured barns and of course each other.

The idea is to break away from our Digital SLRs and get us thinking about composition, light, deep depths of field and proving that beautiful images can be made without expensive equipment.

There may be times when you are not allowed to bring your Digital SLR into an event or location, yet you would still like to capture the moment. This is one way you can break out and learn to still get the shot without your DSLR. As the old adage goes: “The best camera is the one you have with you.” - unknown

For additional fun, if possible, try: editing your images in camera or on your phone. You could also bring other sources of light to illuminate or shadow your subject, such as a reflector disc.

Example images:

Wheeler Farm has a *suggested* donation of $10 for photography and their offices open at 9am. We will gather by the main building (park in the South Parking lot) and create a list of photographers to make checking in easier for them. We will accept the donation or you can drop it off at the office. We’ll do the group photo, chat a bit, and then start heading out around the farm. A map of the farm can be found at:
