A report was posted on Fujairah in Focus last Saturday about the visit of the Dubai Friday Shoot Out Group (FSO) to the UAE’s East Coast.
For most of these amateur photographers it was their first or second visit to Fujairah and they were entranced—so much so that they have scheduled a further visit for 11 February 2011.
Set Before Shooting
Fujairah photographer, Alan Nambiar, offered some useful hints to the shooters and urged them to think carefully about how they compose a picture. For instance, he told them to forget about the Automatic setting and work with the Manual setting. He advised them to adjust the white light setting by not using ‘Sunlight’ even in the bright sun. “Experiment with the ‘Shade’ setting for a richer result,” Alan suggested.
Tell Me a Story
Alan encouraged the Dubai photographers to take their photos and then select for the FSO Facebook site, six photos that tell a story.
Did they achieve this objective? What stories did these first or second-time visitors to Fujairah tell about the emirate? You be the photography judge.
