The Meet up Photography Group is for human Interaction
The educational opportunities are incredible, including competitions, lectures, workshops and field trips. But imagine being able to interact with fellow photographers to discuss meetup photography or receive simple critiques of your work.
Google and YouTube are incredible, and I envy young photographers. When I started learning the basics of photography, all I had was boring books with black and brown pictures. (Yes, I am that age) It is great for your ego to post a photo on Facebook and receive tons of likes. Or the other which is the rays food place testosterone-fueled criticism from trolls. This will not help you improve your photography skills, and is usually from people who have less than you.
I’ve had the privilege of giving kawaii food workshops and lectures at meetup photography groups and camera clubs all across the country. You may wonder, then, what are the benefits for working professionals?
The best thing about club events is that so many people are passionate about meetup photography. They are passionate about learning, and I have learned a lot from them about my photography.
Most careers are second nature after a while. When people ask me questions about composition, depth of field, lighting, or depth of field… questions that may seem simple to professionals, it forces me to think critically and to evaluate my own approach and processes in order to provide a satisfactory answer.
I wouldn’t lie if I said that I have learned from club members who are years younger than me or a generation older than I. A photographer who claims to be an expert on meetup photography is a lazy photographer. Creative thinking requires us to constantly challenge our knowledge and skills. They are lazy because they have stopped learning new skills.
Camera Clubs are Not New
Camera clubs have been around since the beginning. meetup photography Groups, which serve the same purpose, have seen a tremendous rise in popularity over recent years. They can be found in all parts of the country, including small cities and towns. Camera Clubs and Meetup photography are a great way to learn and improve your skills. They also offer a chance to challenge yourself and share what you’ve learned with other people who share a passion for photography.
