Group for beginners
Posted December 11th, 2010 - 2:06 pm by from Barcelona, Spain (Permalink)
Hi all,
I was thinking...
I have a reflex digital camera I can hardly use. I was thinking if someone with some knowledge might like to make a meeting or two (with a little group -let's say 2-3 ppl) to take pictures around teaching a little bit of how to do it, not using the Automatic position :D
We can pay the person off with a meal, show the person around the city (if it's a foreigner)... I don't know. I accept proposals.

I would be in as well, don't have much experience but can cook ;)

Hey, I would be happy to show some of the things a reflex can do for you, I love teaching that stuff!
There is no need to "pay" for it in any way, as i said I really enjoy it.

It would be a matter of coordinating one day and time to meet. I have plenty of time at mornings.

See you!

Mornings is fine with me. I am leaving for vacations next friday, so it would be awesome to do it before that.

Next thursday is OK for me too.
If Ivan and Sandra can do it then the group would be complete. In this case is better to be a small group, like Ivan said at the beginning of the post.

See you!

if someone drops out i'm in. i do know how to use some of the settings but i'm not a pro by any means.

Hi there,

I will have to drop out, so good, because since Jorge loves to teach this, I will propose him another gathering.

After Christmas I will be trying to stirr up this group with salidas to have fun together.

See you!!

Hi all!

Well, then, so far we can organize 2 groups, but we need some confirmations...
In one hand we have:

Ivan, Benajmin and Sandra - Date: next thursday morning.
And in the other:
Javi and Oscar - Date: after the holidays.

We can meet in my place to do some "Theoric introduction"(which I consider very necessary) and then walk around, cameras in hand, to put those thing into pictures. I live quite near of Passeig de Gracia and Diagonal, so there are some nice spots.
What do you think?

Posted December 13th, 2010 - 12:43 pm by from Maur, Switzerland (Permalink)
Thanks! For me perfect, Looking forward seeing you on thursday..:) Around 9? Where exactly?

See you

guys i can't make it thursday morning, i have class :(

Posted December 15th, 2010 - 10:23 am by from Barcelona, Spain (Permalink)
Hello there!

Well... So far the only one that can do it tomorrow is Benjamin. Ivan and Sandra didn't answered, and Oscar and Javi can't make it.

What do we do?


Posted December 15th, 2010 - 10:26 am by from Maur, Switzerland (Permalink)
So we should switch to another day ;)
When do you have time?

Posted December 15th, 2010 - 10:29 am by from Maur, Switzerland (Permalink)
Or is tomorrow for you ok Ivan and Sandra? Hope you reply in the next hours ;)

Posted December 15th, 2010 - 12:32 pm by from L'Hospitalet de Llobregat, Spain (Permalink)
If you could meet on Saturday or Sunday, I could join in. Many people can't do it on a working day... it's up to you, guys.



Posted December 15th, 2010 - 3:20 pm by from Maur, Switzerland (Permalink)
also possible..

Posted December 15th, 2010 - 5:53 pm by from Barcelona, Spain (Permalink)
Yes, let's postpone this for another time that fits better to more people...

Unfortunatelly, the weekends aren't possible for me.

Let's keep trying!

Guys, I'm really amazed by all these many answers. Any group ended meeting up?
I had to travel for work reasons and couldn't catch up with you or see the posts.
I'm leaving for Christmas, too, so I won't be able to catch up before next year. I'll post again. For me, during the week is pretty difficult. I would be glad if a group can be arranged for saturday or sunday.
Merry christmas to you all and be back soon!

Posted December 22nd, 2010 - 10:09 am by from Barcelona, Spain (Permalink)
I'm in for some lesson/hints about the proper use of light too.

I would drop an idea: a bit ago there was a meeting for CSer out for a night shooting pictures, I couldn't join that day and I'm really looking forward for another event like that. Wouldn't it be nice to schedule a monthly meeting for photography? We could share the knowledge or go out for night shots.

Hi all, I'm interested in any groups meeting up during the week, I have a new Canon D3000 which I love but only managed to use it on auto so far :(


Posted February 27th, 2011 - 5:30 pm by from Barcelona, Spain (Permalink)
I know this is a pretty old post but i guess it doesn't really matter. :)

I just moved in Barcelona for a couple of weeks and i am photographer. So if you want to meet up, it would be my pleasure to help you out with some info and tips. :)


Posted June 17th, 2011 - 9:08 pm by from Barcelona, Spain (Permalink)
so, this post is like 6 months old, but anyone up for another photo training session?!
maybe we can find someone who can teach us or we can just try by ourselves! i have been reading books and watching videos, but im still at a very amateur point! hehehe
why dont we try to organize a walk around barna and just start shooting and then try to join together and check out our shots, or something like that.
ill post this in a new thread and see if anyone else is interested in join in!


Posted September 8th, 2011 - 8:53 am by from Barcelona, Spain (Permalink)
hola everyone!

I've been thinking, why could we meet up first, get to know each other a bit and withing the meeting figure out where or who or how we could improve our photography skills :) ?

Posted September 12th, 2011 - 9:51 pm by from Barcelona, Spain (Permalink)
hey kasia, this group is a ghost town! i post like 2 months ago and not a single reply till yours! maybe we should start a new beginners group along with Tony once he arrive in bcn!
