Re: Basel Photoclub

Hi,

I am new to Basel and really enjoy photography. I have a Canon bridge camera and am not a pro, but would like to understand from someone who is willing to perhaps spare some time as to how I can make the most of my camera and create some breathtaking shots. Being new to Basel, joining the photoclub would also allow me to socialise with some new faces.

Could someone let me know if it is still an active club?

Thanks.

Group is still active and meets roughly once every 4-6 weeks.
Next shoot will most likely be for the Christmas markets one evening. Will post something up here once an event has been organised. Feel free to join the facebook group also - its a bit easier to arrange a meet and share photos via that: https://www.facebook.com/groups/376539965805073/
Most of us will be happy to share some tips though we're all amateurs so don't expect top notch tuition!

Hello! i'm new to Basel but I enjoy casual photography. I have a Pana GF1 running on micro 4/3. I only have 2 lenses, but they do the job for me! I'd love to join in on the next meet! (just requested to join the fb group)

Re: Basel Photoclub

Happy New Year folks.

I thought I'd post up some dates for events coming up in Basel to see what people are interested in shooting.

We've just missed Vogelgryff (yesterday) but there isn't much on before March, so we'll have to come up with our own ideas.

Fasnacht
9th March - Liestal Chienbaese bonfire procession
10th - Morganstreich
11th - Gugge (music festival)

March onwards
27th to 3rd April - BaselWorld watch fair. 60CHF entry. Messeplatz
Now until 9th Apr - Lightopia, exhibition at Vitra Design museum (Germany). Free
13 April - Fotoboersen Binningen (photo gear flea market)

I was also toying with heading away for the weekend of Fasnacht but not sure where or what to shoot yet. Thoughts and suggestions appreciated.

Re: Basel Photoclub

New meet:

Sunset and evening shoot - Basel
Friday May 16th - from 7pm
Plan is to meet at Dreirosenbruke near the river and walk along the east (Klein Basel) bank to do some people photography in the golden light of the arfternoon, as the banks should be pretty busy that time of day. There will also be some swimmers in the Rhein most likely.

One the sunsets, we can set up on one of the bridges to get some sunset/dusk shots of Basel (dusk is around 21:30) so remember to bring your tripod.

Re: Basel Photoclub

Final bit of spam from me

I'm planning to arrange another photo weekend again such as the Matterhorn trip last year. Options include:
  1. Riederalp - Bettmeralp suspension bridge
  2. Verzasca valley in Ticcino
  3. Niederhorn
  4. Burghohenzollern in Tübingen
  5. Rhone Glacier and Furka pass
If you are interested, please let me know. There is a poll going on the facebook group - PM me for a link if interested. So far, Option 1 is the favourite. I plan to organise something by the end of May so let me know what you would prefer.

Re: Basel Photoclub

I moved the group to a facebook page a while back - scroll back far enough in this thread and there is a link, else search for EF Basel Photo on Facebook and you'll find it easy enough.

Haven't really organised anything for a while as my wife recently had a baby and a few of the regulars that help organise things have left Basel. Maybe after the summer I'll organise something again but for now its in hiatus.
