Saturday – 30/06/2018 – Abandoned / Nature / Street

Gleisdreieck Park

There’s plenty to photograph at this former railway-siding, parts of it have been left abandoned, rusting and overgrown rails are now a tangled nature reserve, but there’s also a skateboarding and basketball park, graffiti artists busily spray away on the railway hoardings, there’s something for everyone there.

It’s a  comfortable and refreshing stroll through one of Berlin’s lesser known areas.

Anyone interested in practicing some close-up macro photography, but not in possession of an expensive macro lens, should maybe invest in a cheap set of macro filters for the occasion.

Public transport:

This is a bring a camera and shoot event, suitable for both the beginner and the more experienced photographer, in fact anyone who wishes to improve their photography skills through practice, the main emphasis is on developing creative compositional skills rather than technical expertise.

If possible please bring 2 prints of previous work to the event, so that we all have something to pass around, discuss and critique during the refreshment break.
This service is available in all branches of Rossmann and prints can easily be made there and then in approximately 5 minutes – 13cm x 18cm Premium Fotoabzüge mit weißem Rand = €0,23 per print.
A tablet or smart phone is unfortunately not a suitable alternative.

If you have problems with PayPal, or don’t have a PalPal account because you still live in the 19th century, please bring it in cash.
