Our April 2014 PhotoMeet will be a special challenge : shooting exclusively with a 50mm lens. Photo composition using a fixed focal length (and considered a telephoto when attached to a cropped sensor camera body) requires better creativity and zooming in and out with our feet. The Shootout challenges the participants by leaving them with no choice but to shoot using the same handicap (a fixed focal length). Only 50mm lenses will be allowed. Lens maximum aperture doesn't matter. NO FULL-FRAME CAMERAS ALLOWED, since full-frame users will benefit from a wider focal length because of the absence of the crop multiplier.
A rented vehicle will transport participants to and from the shooting locations (UP Diliman and Quezon City Circle). The group leaves Malolos at 8AM sharp for UP Diliman, with an ETA of 9AM. The shooters will disperse and be free to roam and shoot on their own for two hours, then head back to a designated meeting point. Group will have lunch, move to QC Circle for another two-hour shoot before heading home to Bulacan.
Other details will be discussed on the day itself. Get your gear ready, bring sun protection and an extra shirt. If you already have the Focus sleeve shirt, the better for your arms. See you!
