Last night, The Digital Arts Experience hosted their 2nd Meetup with group, “Digital Artists of Westchester“.  This time around, it was centered on digital photography. The DAE staff set up different “shoot stations” around the facility. Each Digital Art Enthusiast had the chance to both model – or SCOOT – to each shoot station, as well as actually shoot photos of other scooters. Try to say that 5 times fast?  Camera basics like shutter speed, aperture, and ISO were first taught, discussed, then immediately put into action!  The best part was that each attendee was encouraged to take lots of photos, share with the rest of the group, and receive feedback and tips on how to make their photo look better. Everyone collaborated and helped each other out – providing tips, tricks, and advice which transformed originally subpar snapshots into extraordinary photographs! Among the stations set up were two areas with green and grey backdrops, as well as a dark room for experimentation with light painting.

The images below are just a few examples of some of the amazing photographs that were taken during the evening. Everyone had a wonderful time, learned a new thing or two, and went home with some fancy looking photos!  We plan to host another “Scoot & Shoot” in the near future.  Join the “Digital Artists of Westchester” to stay up to date with the latest happenings!
