50mm Lens Meetup

Lakeshore Drive - 10am - 2 Hours

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.

    The event was great! Uyen was brilliant, she followed up with everyone, reviewing the shoot after each session (location). Great to meet folks with similar interest. Uyen also shares tips and tricks on the processing techniques and reviews the outcomes as well.

    Uyen is excellent trainer. She did not waste any time and directly got started with the shoot and slowly started giving apt suggestions on frame, angles, exposures and practical aspects of analyzing best sides of models. She was courteous enough to pose as model for my training session. It's the best first exposure I've had on headshot photography.

    PHOTOGRAPHERS
    Uyen Ta
    Growing up, Uyen had a passion for taking photos and developed a plan to start doing a photography business herself in the fashion industry after modeling for a year. Having worked with a model in a very well known agency in SF, she has decided to start teaching the basics and fundamentals of how the camera works. It has been a fun, exciting five to six year journey to getting where she was at and ever since then has semi retired from photography and been shifting towards working on other hobbies such as streaming, djing and hanging out with close friends and family. She is currently at UC Berkeley getting two degrees and planning to travel more! She loves her dog, Monty, and tries to make sure everybody has a pleasant experience in a group setting in this informal, fun and laid back structured meet up!

    Uyen Ta is available for private bookings

    Available most Saturdays and Sundays from 1pm until 7pm.
    Private tutoring, weddings, portraits, and events.

    Title or Location: Home Studio
    I recently set up a photography studio in my condo and am trying to learn some portrait photography skills by watching YouTube video tutorials. Most of the time I'm using myself as a model. I actuate the camera shutter with a hand held bluetooth shutter release. With this shot I was testing a lighting setup that would create a "Rembrandt" lighting effect while at the same time bringing the light in from behind the subject...known as short lighting. When I was young I was into acting and am fasci

It was a very foggy morning on my way to work and I thought it may be a good opportunity to take a picture of the Caltrain leaving the station in Mountain View. Canon R6 Asahi SMC Takumar 50mm f/1.4. I think this was about f/4 or f/5.6. ISO 100 1/640.

    I am the person who is always looking for a place with waterfall. It brings me peace of mind, the negative thought could release by the sound of the waterfall. By looking at the waterfall it made me realized the flowing of the water is like the flow of life, nothing remains stagnant.

    Title or Location: Montforts Beach
    It was nothing but grey skies and rain for days on end, but I decided that you don't always need epic sunsets for great photos. The dull weather also allowed me to get a 20 second exposure with an ND1000 filter giving that classic wispy water look. A wide angle lens allowed me to get nice and close and emphasize the subject, being that close also meant there was some close calls with the occasional freak wave coming up to where I had my tripod and me running back up the beach to escape them

As if Mother Nature decided that the colours were not enough and returned with these extraordinary after colours!I was a bit wavering that afternoon looking at those thick clouds building up but then a gap in those clouds made for a colour burst producing a sunset that has by far been one of the best in this year I have seen!
