Basel - digital photography school or group

Does anyone know of an English language photography school or group in the area? If not, is anyone here interested in getting together from time to time as part of group, to exchange tips and techniques, participate in photo taking projects and share your results. All with the objective of improving your photography.

This is not a commercial advert. I bought a digital SLR last summer and was immediately frustrated by the pictures I was taking. I attended a short course in London (UK) last autumn which gave me an understanding of the technical side, but I want to improve my composition and generally challenge myself with the camera.

Re: Basel - digital photography school or group

Hello There,

I am definately interested. I live in Zurich and will be starting a new job in Basel next month. I bought a Digital SLR Nikon D80 (18-200mm lens) and I am not really with my current use.

Re: Basel - digital photography school or group

Ooops!!! didnt intend to confuse you guys with my earlier post but I meant I am not really happy with the current use of my camera (basically taking pictures left right and center without not much technical thought).

We already have 3/4 interested people - I guess that meets the criteria for a group.

Any suggestions on a name for this group or am I counting my egss before they've hatched....

What do you guys think of Basel, I'm quite excited about my new job but plenty of posts on this topic.

Re: Basel - digital photography school or group

If you can get a group of 6 or more together, we would be happy to offer a class around your needs in Basel.

You can also join our Meetup group for free photography activities: http://www.meetup.com/viewfinder/

Our next meetup is in Zürich, but we change locations every month and would love to come to Basel, Bern, Lausanne, Lugano or anywhere else.

Kind regards,

Bryon McCartney

Re: Basel - digital photography school or group

Hi, I wondered the same and now I have both! I started by getting a Panasonic as you mentioned, I really enjoyed the compact nature of the camera and although it had a lot of manual settings I have to say that eventually I became frustrated with it. I still use it from time to time, as well as a really small Panasonic I can put in my pocket, but I don't think you can beat a DSLR is you want to develop your interest in digital photography. That's my personal opinion.

regards

Re: Basel - digital photography school or group

Hi

I don't really know much about photography but I'd be up for learning, always one of those things I wanted to do and never got round to. Now I'm in Basel and not working so I guess no excuse! Would love to join and would be great to meet some new faces!

Re: Zurich - digital photography get-together

I'd be happy to organise a get-together in Zurich.

I suggest April 11 at the Zurich HB. Time to be decided in case there are people coming from Basel.

PM me if interested.

Both for information on use of camera , and in regular meets to actually use the camera. Im away on the 11th so cant be there then .

Re: Basel - digital photography school or group

Also in Basel, and would be interested in an informal D-SLR photo group. Had my Olympus E-Series for over a year and still learning...

Maybe a social event should be posted to test the waters.... Will try and get some feedback from tonights "Basel Curry" event for a photograph based event.
