Photography: Tips & Best Practices
- Challenge Yourself: Don’t fear the rain or the dark! Test your skills and push yourself by conquering both.
- Stay Informed: Keep yourself up-to-date on modern exhibits and artists with trips to museums and photography centers.
- Revisit the Classics: Remember the scenes and moments that brought you to photography by revisiting popular city scenes.

Movies & Film: Meetup Highlight
While many film buffs restrict their cinematic participation to viewing and discussing, New York City’s Dark Kidney Filmmaking Effort Meetup Group jumps feet first into the production process.
They host everything from writers’ circles to industry lectures and frequently collaborate on projects together. In May, they even worked on films for Tropfest!
If you love your watch parties but want to get creative with your film interest, this might be just the Meetup Group for you.

The Death Cafe movement has a few ground rules. Meetings are confidential and not for profit. People must respect one another’s disparate beliefs and avoid proselytizing. And tea and cake play an important role.
Tech: Meetup Highlight
Can big data save the world? Does data science really do an effective job of explaining issues and their resulting solutions?
Do you live in the NYC area and find yourself lying awake at night pondering these sorts of questions? If so, you should head on over to a NYC Data Skeptics Meetup!
The NYC Data Skeptics aim to explore the complexities of big data and data science with a healthy dose of skepticism.
Not a very technical person? Not to worry! This Meetup is open to anyone with an interest in how data is used.
