50mm Lens Meetup

50mm Lens Meetup

Saturday 15 June
Downtown Las Vegas - 10am - 2 Hours
Matthew Consoli
The 50mm lens is one of the flexible and useful lenses in any photographer’s gear bag. It is neither a wide-angle or telephoto lens, but allows the camera to see on the same scale as your eye. As such, it can be used for a variety of styles, from landscape and street photography to portrait and product photography. In this meetup, we’ll review the basic camera settings. We’ll then cover some of the advantages of shooting with a prime lens, and some basic techniques to using the 50mm lens. As always, there will be ample opportunities for you to put your new knowledge into practice.

We will be gathering in front of Container Park. During our time together we will challenge ourselves to use the 50mm focal length, and revisit the basics of photography! We will be walking up to 3 miles round-trip, so be sure to wear comfortable shoes, and dress for the summer heat! Bring fluids, but also be mindful of the many cafes and restaurants in the neighborhood!

    Matthew is a great lead photographer and his location was spot-on for model photography. I was able to get so many good shots, with different backgrounds and the models seemed to enjoy the day, also. The 85mm lens shoot worked really well!

    Title or Location: MSG Sphere from a helicopter flying over the Las Vegas Strip
    Although I am a Vegas Local, I have never had a chance to see the MSG Sphere up close . I mentioned to a friend that the only way to get an arial shot of the Sphere is from a helicopter since you can NOT fly drones anywhere near it. I also said that the "Universe needed to make this happen for me". 3 days later I was hired by a company to shoot their annual conference which included a helicopter tour of the Strip. 5 days after I asked for it, I was doing it. The best part... I told the pilot th

    Title or Location: Charlies Hut, Carneys Creek
    As anyone who chases milkyway photos will tell you, they take some careful planning and often a lack of sleep. Charlies Hut is in the Scenic Rim. It's about a 2hr drive from home, and with the help of Photopills, we could see that the moon would have set with the milkyway still visible at about 4am. So alarms were set for 1.30am, coffee was made and off we went. I use the intervalometer on my Canon 6D mark ii to shoot between 15-20 images of the sky. The lens I used was a Samyang 14mm, set

    Title or Location: Just north of Brechin on Hwy 169.
    May 10 the northern lights hit a G5 storm, a KP index of 9, the highest it will go, and the best storm we've seen in over 20 years. I drove my 10 year old son north to see them, this was a chance of a lifetime. I managed to get several amazing photos. Canon R6M2, RF10-20mm lens at 10mm, 30sec at f4, iso 1000, manual focusing. This was looking more north-west as most of the bright colours could be seen to the south, west and just north of us.

    Title or Location: Cremorne Point
    Cremorne Point is always a favourite choice to capture the southerly sunsets with the Sydney Opera House and the city skyline in the frame. This isn't a long exposure shot but a motion blur added to the water in post production.

    Title or Location: Stub Stewart State Park Hilltop area
    This was the day of famous Northern Lights visible in most of the North America. Stubs Stewart is the most ideal dark area for star gazing so I reached there around 11pm. As expected, it was full of enthusiasts. The lights were predicted to be at peak between 10pm - 2am. Around 2pm, when we though the "show was over", the lights started getting incredibly bright, and that is when this picture was taken. Interestingly, the lights were bright in some regions and other regions were faded enough to

    Title or Location: Curly dick Rd ,Meadow flat
    It's a famous road for Golden Poplars, but I wanted to capture the Milky way passing over trees that have lost their leaves. it was early evening, but the Milky Way was already high up, so I quickly took some photos and returned to Sydney.
