OIST Photographic Society

Welcome to the OIST Photographic Society 

We are a group of photographers at OIST, who meet now and then to  discuss our photos, organize photographic challenges and workshops.

Our interests include digital and film/analogue/chemical photography, as well as many photographic genres including (but not limiting to) landscape, macro, nature, street/documentary, abstract, portrait and whatever you can bring to the group.

We also shoot with whatever camera we have, from phones to professional-grade digital cameras, and even home-made pinhole cameras, so no one will ever judge your gear.

If you like photography, or would like to improve or share your skills and you're interested in joining us, find us on Slack (oistphoto.slack.com or scan the code). We post our events on our Facebook page, or you can email our chairperson, Alex Alonso (alexandro.alonso@oist.jp).

There's a group meeting every now and then, usually on Wednesdays from 12:15 to 13:00, our usual venue is in Lab 1 LvC room C015, if you want to join, feel free to check our shared calendar where we post all the details, including the venue, topics and zoom link (when available).

  • Next meeting will be on Wed 18 Jan 12:15-13:00 in Lab 1 Lv C C015, if you enter lab 1 from center building, it's the second room to your right (before the automatic door) there's a map available.

This group is in a restructuring period, so if you have an idea or if there's something related to photography you'd like to try (or if you'd like to learn from scratch), feel free to contact us or come to our next meeting and pitch any idea you have.
