I will nerd out for a good casue,. I naturally tend to go that way anyway. :) Sooooo. I'll model. And shoot. If you're willing, of course!
admin
Justin, we'll nerd out in our own, non-redneck way.

Awesome Nate and Sarah. I want to model and shoot. I'll get a couple of dates up soon.

Ohhh! More nerds! Tina, I will love you forever if you nerd out for me. You too Brandon!

I am trying to figure out a location. Should we go with some place like Beaner's? I have zero lighting equipment so if we do this indoors I will need others to volunteer to bring all of that. Any other suggestions?

Do you all want to do a weeknight evening or a weekend day/evening? I will try to pick a night that our nerds can be there or else there will be no nerds to make this spectacular event happen.
admin
More information. I will have a date up very soon. It is most likely going to be a Sunday in April (not Easter).

If you have an instrument please bring it. Bonus if it is a clarinet, a triangle, or a recorder. We will be doing band portraits.

More to come.......
admin
Okay peeps. Let's set a date. I'm going to throw out two dates and see which works best for most people.

April 18th or May 2nd.

Which one do you prefer?
admin
Evenings? Either should work.
enchanted afternoon [deleted] 8 years ago
April 18th!
Amanda~Christine 8 years ago
Either works for me, and I have a clarinet :)
fragile existence [deleted] 8 years ago
Meeeeee too! :) whatever works for me!
MOD
mb_wen 8 years ago
+1 flute and perhaps a recorder, i'm not sure if a guitar is 'nerdy' but i can probably offer that as well.
admin
Alright, I'm going to say the 18th.

Should I try to reserve Beaner's or does anyone have any other good location ideas?
8u11y Posted 8 years ago. Edited by 8u11y (member) 8 years ago
I have a trombone, April 18 works for me. I can get us an empty office (800 sq ft.) with white walls.
admin
The office space sounds perfect! If you could set that up for us that would be much appreciated!
tina_p0608 8 years ago
This is going to be great. Im trying to get my hands on a trumpet.

Do you need a background stand and lights?

I need to find an ugly sweater. Calling Peter.
admin
Yes on the lights and backround stand. If anyone has any backrounds that you'd like to bring that would be great. :-)
admin
I have a 6 foot roll of white seamless, stand, lights, modifiers, etc... I can bring it all.
If anyone has a 9 foot roll of seamless and could bring it, that would be better.
admin

i do. white and/or black?
fragile existence [deleted] 8 years ago

I will work on the space tomorrow, I'm down for later in the afternoon.

Thanks Jeff!

Shoot. I've got a rock climbing competition that day. Sorry I can't make it!
enchanted afternoon [deleted] 8 years ago
What time on the 18th?
admin
Jeff, are we set up with the location and is there a specific time that we can use it?

Who all is coming for sure? And who is planning on modeling for sure?
MOD
mb_wen 8 years ago
I will shoot for sure.

Probably no on the 'modeling'.
admin
I will be there. Most likely will sit in front of the camera for a while.
tina_p0608 8 years ago
I will be sitting infront of the camera.

tina_p0608 8 years ago
I better make a run to the good will and find some peter pan collared button up shirts.
Wish I could get my hands on a school uniform.
fragile existence [deleted] 8 years ago
sorry I am slow. I can make it. GAH!

If you can find me something to wear, I'll model. Otherwise, I'm shooting. :)
admin
Yay! Whoever wants to nerd out, I will love you forever. :-)

Rich, any instruments you can drum up (pun intended) will work.

Sarah, we should do a Goodwill run this week. If anyone else wants to go let me know! Tina?

Hopefully we have the location set up? Jeff? Otherwise.....we may be shooting in my garage or back yard.
enchanted afternoon [deleted] Posted 8 years ago. Edited by enchanted afternoon (member) 8 years ago
I'll come to the goodwill with you! Lemme know when you go. :)

And I'll gladly nerd all night long!
enchanted afternoon [deleted] 8 years ago
As for instruments, I have one of those recorders (looks like a really cheap flute). I just have to find it...
8u11y 8 years ago
We are good for anytime on Sunday, the place is vacant, let me know when.

Shall we say 4 PM?

Piedmont Plaza.....Same building as Big Daddy's Burgers. Half way down the strip mall is the entrance...I will put a sign up.

Shana, what day would like to meet to go to the goodwill?
I work all week, so I just need to know when to get my butt out of bed and show my face.
I cant on friday. I will be in the cities.
fragile existence [deleted] 8 years ago
we talked about going tomorrow.... however we have three children that will be accompanying us. :) It's gonna be wild.
admin
Tina, when can you go? That's probably an easier question because my schedule is pretty wind open and I don't work a crazy ass schedule. :
admin
N. Lindstrom Photo 8 years ago
Dunno if I'll make it yet. If not you guys can certainly borrow my nerdery items; I have some great vintage suit coats as well as a bunch of role play items from one specific franchise.

I'm sure I have other things as well, they just aren't coming to mind for some reason.....

I have a bassoon too, and lasers.......

Shana Jo/A Mother's Soul Posted 8 years ago. Edited by Shana Jo/A Mother's Soul (admin) 8 years ago
I am in love with the lasers. Lasers would rock my world. I almost asked a few weeks ago if anyone had lasers, but figured that there was no way anyone would. I should not have doubted the power of the DPG. ;-)

Please come Karl. I'll come pick you up if needed. :-)

Nate, I hope you can make it, but obviously understand if you can't!
admin
Jeff, will we be okay bringing food and drink into the space?
8u11y 8 years ago
No problem
8u11y 8 years ago
tina_p0608 8 years ago
we can meet up for good will either tomorrow or thursday. I can even do Saturday.
On Wednesday and Thursday, I work at 7 pm. so anytime before that. You pick a time and goodwill, I will show up. Most likely with crazy bed head hair.
MOD
mb_wen 8 years ago
With the lasers, if we had some sort of smoke machine... that would be pretty sweet too...
admin
Tina, I can't tomorrow, but maybe Thursday, late afternoon?

Ooooh, I'd love a smoke machine too. That might be a bit much for the office space that Jeff is so kindly letting us use though?

Does anyone have any chairs or other seating that might go good in a nerd portrait? I'm going to bring a couple of stools most likely.
MOD
Karl W. 8 years ago
I have them too.......

hello hello, many may not know me, its been a looong time. But I might have a new camera by Sunday, if so may I stop by?
enchanted afternoon [deleted] 8 years ago

Mind if I come to Goodwill too? :)


If I can go, then you most certainly can. ;)
admin
Edge! I would love for you to come. I was just telling Scott the other day that I've missed seeing you around. :-)

Yep, you can come to Goodwill Jason! We just need to figure out a time.
8u11y 8 years ago
Bring the smoke machine and we can see how much it puts out and try not to smoke us out.
tina_p0608 8 years ago
Thursday works for me. Just post a time and I will be there. Which goodwill location also.
timescapephoto 8 years ago
no smoke machine ... but I do have a bubble machine. any interest in that?
admin
edgeways 8 years ago
fwiw bubbles can make great trails with very slow shutter speed.
admin
Yes on the bubble machine!
admin
Yes on the bubble machine for sure.

Anyone have a DIY huge ring light like this?



No I am not kidding.
You get results like this.

bubbles! aaaaggggh! :)

My schedule just changed and I'll have to work until 6 pm on Sunday....
timescapephoto 8 years ago
Shawn, if no one else has one of these I will slap one together by Sunday. May not be pretty - but it'll be functional
admin
Amanda, if you feel up to it after work come on up! I'm sure we'll still be there by then.

Jim, that would be awesome!

You people are seriously cool for coming up with all of these ideas and being willing to contribute to this crazy event. I am super excited!
enchanted afternoon [deleted] 8 years ago

You guys are hittin' up Goodwill tomorrow (Thursday), ain'tchya? I can't make it. :(

Tina, I'm sorry about not getting back to about Goodwill! The day just got away from me yesterday.

Jim: Wow!
timescapephoto 8 years ago
doh

Just realized I only have a quarter gallon of the bubble fluid left. Does anyone have an idea (party store, rental house, etc) where I could get some. Happy to PayPal someone (plus paypal fees) today to pick up a gallon for us.

Email me direct at studio [at] timescapephoto [.] com

Thanks.

Jim, do you think the reflective back on that "ring" will give you extra reflections that are undesireable?

Will find out in a few hours Brian. Peel and stick so it shouldn't be to bad if I have to remove it..
