Just an FYI. My house is near 185th and Baseline where Beaverton, Aloha, and Hillsboro meet. We will be sending out a e-mail to those that RSVP with the address. Working with the Internet since 92 and in IT, I do my best to keep my address and other information off the "public domain".

185th and Baseline is a MAX stop, so i'm sure we can coordinate a pickup from the MAX before the shoot (if needed)
admin
OregonVelo 10 years ago
Yup. I am just a couple of blocks away and would be more than willing to pick up people that take the max.
DaveWeav 10 years ago
I will be there. I may even have my background that I can bring.
tim goodspeed 10 years ago
Count me in. Had a great time last month, let's do it again.

coupeowner Posted 10 years ago. Edited by coupeowner (admin) 10 years ago
I am up for it as well. Of course I am still trying to digest all I learned in January from you all. Thanks again.

Oh, and I just received a few boxes of black straws. I will bring a few handfuls to the meet if anyone is interested.
admin
OregonVelo 10 years ago
sign me up for the black straws.
also sign me up for the black straws please . :)
DennisGoetz 10 years ago
Count me in for the photoshoot. I had a lot of fun in December and I'm glad I'll be able to make this month's.
Stereoblind 10 years ago
I can't do Fridays or Saturdays. :( Hopefully next month will be a Sunday again. I'm sad to miss everyone, have a great time!

...and I'm missing the black straws and everything..

What do people take to things like this? I don't have a way to have my 580 EX flash off camera yet....could I still come to learn?

sign me up! I can't wait to see what's in store!!

Stereo - I can see alternating days. I know I will have a hard time to meet sundays because that is a big shoot day for me.

Schonafrye - Bring what gear you have. At the very least you can try out my other flashes with my PW's or via the opitial trigger in the 580.
admin
metakephoto PRO Posted 10 years ago. Edited by metakephoto (admin) 10 years ago
Schonafrye: you can borrow my hot shoe to hot shoe sync cord if you'd like.

Stereoblind: We are having it on Saturday this month to accomodate OregonVelo. I asked him what day worked best for him since we are meeting at his house and Saturday it was. It's possible we will be back on the Sunday schedule next month.

Please sign me in for Feb. 23rd photo shoot. I will be bring a model and I would like to try sport athletic theme and a lingerie theme for her.

kenneth barton PRO 10 years ago
I'm on the list already. Cool.

DaveWeav 10 years ago
ShutterCraze (Nuel), I am very interested to try the sport athletic theme with you. Does your model have any sports uniforms or gear?

-David
I would like to come again. My schedule it free! Sign me up!
admin
ShutterCraze (NUEL) 10 years ago
My model is a total gym rat and she has all kinds of nice gym outfits but no official sport uniforms like Juls had last month. I want to try half body shots like you see on the front page of Shape magazine with gym outfit or bikini. Also I can bring my mountain bike and bike trainer so we can set up to pose the model easily for a bike scene. The arm wrestling thing sounds crazy and fun. She was more excited about posing on the red couch with something exotic for us. Just FYI for everyone that none of the people I bring are working models but rather just friends of mine, so they need direction and your patience. I hope that is OK with everyone.

@DaveWeav- I hope you can bring your backgrounds to play with especially for the couch area shoot. I find shooting indoors just difficult because of all the background clutter. Without backdrops my indoor photos seem more like just snapshots. I'm eager to learn from this experience.

-Nuel
The_Nothing 10 years ago
i'm one of the new guys to the group, but would love to join in as well. don't have much to offer but ability to listen, watch and learn
@ the_nothing, bring Camera and shoot.. There should be enough gear that you can try several things.
Schona Kessler 10 years ago
@ Oregon & Metake,

Thanks guys for offering use of your gear...I will talk to hubby....see if I can go to a strange guys house with a bunch of other strange guys alone. lol! He might want to come...but we wouldn't want to be around if there is going to be a chic in lingerie...a bit to racey for our tastes....
Poppy*Photography 10 years ago
Ah man, I had hoped to come up from Eugene for the next shoot, but I'll be unavailable on the 23rd. Maybe next time!
admin
metakephoto PRO Posted 10 years ago. Edited by metakephoto (admin) 10 years ago
Shonafrye: You can always shoot something else, during the lingerie portion of the shoot. There will be other models that you can photograph and hopefully a tabletop product photography setup in the kitchen.
admin
ShutterCraze (NUEL) 10 years ago
@Schonafrye- We can plan NOT to shoot a certain theme if it would be uncomfortable for anyone to be around that particular theme. I would prefer to have people present to learn rather than do a theme that would offend someone and he/she not be present. There are many other themes we could do with the model. There are ways to get around the problem like waiting to the end of the day to shoot anything that might be offensive like too much skin, religion, political views, violence/weapons, etc. We may be strange but we strive to create a positive learning environment and be professionals about it. I'm glad you brought up this point and I hope to see you and hubby there.
-Nuel

metakephoto PRO 10 years ago
yeah i was thinking of having the lingerie shoot be later in the day (around 4pm)
admin
OregonVelo 10 years ago
Schonafrye - I agree with ShutterCraze. there are lots of options. Plus your hubby need not worry. You won't be the only female. It is looking like there will be around 6 females attending between models and photographers.
coreyshelton PRO 10 years ago
I would love to attend. Unfortunately, I could only stay until 3pm. I don't want to keep someone from attending who actually has the whole day free, but If someone wants to come late and split a spot, or something, I'd be great.
Schona Kessler 10 years ago
Oh well that would be great if we could skip the skin shots till later when people who prefer not....don't have to be there.
Schona Kessler 10 years ago
Ok I can come if I can find a babysitter. lol. Hubby say he'd rather do something else as long as he doesn't have to have our 3 kids. lol
Will look for a sitter today! YAY

admin

@Mr.Meeker: We will be meeting from12-6pm. And "yes" feel free to bring food. We can easily turn this into a potluck with OregonVelo's permission.

OregonVelo 10 years ago
12 to 6. Yes, snacks and drinks would be nice.

mrjonathanpotter Posted 10 years ago. Edited by mrjonathanpotter (member) 10 years ago
Count me in, I need some more practice and had a blast last time.

In addition if any one wants so conserve the earth and lives in N/NE Portland I'd be happy to carpool. I'm up in St. Johns and grew up out where the meet up is, so I know it can be a bit of a drive...Just wanted to throw it out.

Auzigog Posted 10 years ago. Edited by Auzigog (member) 10 years ago
Sign me up for tenative slot as well. I'm about 80% sure that I'll be able to make it.

Hopefully my V2s trigger will get delievered by then. I lost my last one a few weekends back.

I also ordered a lighting kit from Midwest Photo Exchange almost a moth ago, and it's *still* back ordered. On the off-chance that it shows up by Saturday, I'll bring that too.

I'll bring my DIY ringflash for sure, though.

PS - If anyone from Eugene is attending, please PM me. Thanks.
admin
ShutterCraze (NUEL) 10 years ago
@metakephoto

FYI, I have a commitment that just came up and I plan to arrive not until 2:30pm to the photoshoot. If available slots are all taken up and more people want to come I'm willing to split my time with someone. Oh ya my model will be arriving the same time too.

thanks, Nuel.
DaveWeav 10 years ago
Nuel, I'll be doing just the opposite. I will arrive around 12:00 and need to leave around 2:30 or 3:00 so if anyone needs to split my time just let me know. Sorry that I'll miss you.

OregonVelo 10 years ago
So everyone that said they were coming should have a flickr mail from me stating my address and my phone number. If you are planning on attending and didn't get an e-mail let me know.

I am still trying to find a babysitter so I could slip away and make it to the meetup, would love to meet you guys and share my DIY ring light/beauty dish. If there are still openings come the day of, can I please be added to the list. I don't want to take a spot for anyone that already is a for-sure. Let me know, thank you! - Heather

Mainly label your light stands, pocket wizards, and flashes.
