There are lots of good reasons to do Social Snappers, we aren’t competitive and I have always welcomed people who just want to do photography. There are no competitions, and we don’t show our work to one another unless someone wants to see something.
With Social Snappers, I’ve tried to create environments where people can feel comfortable using whatever camera they have. I don’t care if people show up with just their phones. There is a saying, the best camera is the one you have with you. It doesn’t matter what camera you have, there are different challenges involved. Taking photos with your phone, for instance, means learning different things and isn’t always easy.
They aren’t lessons, but that doesn’t mean I’m not there to help you. If you want to learn something specific when we go out, then I can help you, but if you want to learn everything, then it isn’t the place.
So if you are interested in doing the Night photography course, but don’t know how, I can give you tips and help you over any problems you might have.
I also realise that there are many photography groups around, where you don’t have to pay to attend, but there are differences. I don’t want these to be about me teaching, but that doesn’t mean if you want to learn to do something that I won’t show you how. If you have trouble working out something on your camera then I will help you. I am there to assist.
The other aspect is that the numbers will be kept down, so there is no more than 10 in a group, with the idea being that everyone gets a chance to take photos. I also know that many of the free groups can have a lot of people attending, so it is a competition to try and get images at times. Small is good and isn’t overwhelming, especially for new people. I also know that I can get around 10 people and make sure they are fine.
So if you are interested, then please email me, email@example.com, email me also if you have any questions.
