Undiscovered theme is “live street” photography

Catch the live moment, as little editing as possible.To remain as truthful to the moment as possible, the ‘rules’ are:

  • no lighting
  • no staging
  • no cropping
  • minimal editing
  • preferably photographed only once – rather than 10 times and picking the best

This month’s main event Diana will be giving us a presentation on her experiences in and tips for gig photography, including some great examples of photos that she’s taken. Useful hints for anyone who’s ever got back from a gig with a memory stick full of blurred pictures of the back of the person stood in front of you’s head!

The Show & Tell theme this month is “Wet”, and you can see some great examples of the varied pictures that were submitted over on the Flickr group. We also discussed themes and topics for the next 3 months’ sessions – announcements on that as soon as we’ve confirmed everything!

A great start to the new year, and the newly-energised Undiscovered group. Ian Simpson from Slaughterhouse Studios came along and gave a talk, ostensibly on the theme of “DSLRs for beginners” but actually covering some really useful general tips on equipment, composition and inspiration, as well as technical tips for DSLR users.

For this meet-up the theme is “photo hack”, and we’re hoping to have some examples and discussions of how people have hacked together amateur alternatives to expensive studio equipment themselves. The theme of the show & tell is also “photo hack”, so if you’ve ever used a couple of Ikea spotlights to light a subject, or created your own infinity curve, stick your photos onto the group and let us know what the results were like.

You can add your photos to the Flickr Group before the meet.

Welcome to the all-new home for Undiscovered. Don’t worry, the Flickr albums and group still exist to show off our work and to talk all things photography, but we thought we needed more of a “shop front” to show ourselves off and talk about what we do, so here it is.

Here’s the programme for a refreshed Undiscovered in the first quarter of 2011. We’re going to split each session between an activity/demo/talk and then the regular, themed “show-and-tell”. Once we’re up and running again we’ll open up an area of the Flickr discussion group for you to suggest future themes. Also, keep an eye out early in the year for news of a Summer Exhibition!

January (Thursday 13th)

  • Talk: DSLRs for beginners
  • Show-&-Tell: “Winter Colours”

TALK:

The DSLR for beginners talk will be given by Ian Simpson from Slaughterhouse Studios. Check out their very pretty blog, and follow them on twitter.

Ian has worked in the industry, in one shape or another, for 21 years. It has taken him around the globe, allowed him to work with some amazing people, become inspired by the little observations in life.

“Working in analogue photography all these years until having my hand forced into digital has made be believe that digital photography has done more good for not so good photographers and nothing at all for very good photographers.”

SHOW & TELL:

If you were lucky enough to take advantage of the early Winter weather, bring along some of your favourite snaps and show us your handywork. We’re not looking for technical skill or expensive equipment – just let us see something you’re proud of; you may well be just the inspiration that someone else is looking for! You can add your photos to the Flickr Group before the meet.

If you are coming to this meeting, please leave a comment!
