Typically, for each meeting, each SIG member brings digital images which form the basis of a critique and discussion session. Time also will be allocated to share technical knowledge and skills, and to socialize.
FOR EACH MEETING: Please bring up to 3 images in total. (1 or all can be from theme). Please also bring camera settings for images and program used to process images.
"This group is exploring twilight, night and low light situations, and other situations where a high ISO must be traded off with other means of managing light.
"Broadly speaking, the group's interests include any situation, outdoors or indoors, that tests the limits of both a camera and a photographer's capabilities in terms of long shutter speeds, large apertures and high ISOs. The subject matter includes the magic hours of sunrise and sunset, available light portraiture, architecture, light painting, the night sky, night street photography, fireworks and studio photography."
