Put me on the list!

I might have to surrender my spot later on because I'm going to a concert in bend the night before, and I'm not sure how I'll get to Portland early enough in the morning.

Perhaps someone else from Eugene is driving up early that morning?
GeoFX 10 years ago
Yes... please count me in.
I'd like to try and make my first PDX Strobist event and meet up with some of you! Please put me down and like Auzigog I may have to withdraw depending on the wife's plans being that it is Mem-Day weekend and at this point I don't know if she will want to do something as she will be graduating very close to then...

Another Sunday means another meeting of the Church of Light.

I will be there, no conflicts so far!

Maybe we should change our group name to "The Church of Light". And David Hobby would come each month and do a sermon, I mean lecture.

and alas, my journey toward my first PDX Strobist meetup is cut short again. I must take myself off the list as I have been informed that it will be one of my close friend's 30th b-day which is being celebrated out of town. next time I hope to make it and sorry for the inconvenience mtp.

cheers and have fun all,

Uh oh.


I'm not going to be able to attend this meeetup :(

My sister is getting married on the 25th and I'm going to be back down in Medford.

Kind of Sucks because I really wanted to go to this meetup too, first outside one in a long time AND it's sports related. oh well :/
mrjonathanpotter 10 years ago
Sadly, again I will be in the wilds camping...Trading in my strobes for long exposures, tripods and a warm sleeping bag.

Long time listener, first time caller...

Sign me up! I'd love to come shoot with you all and trade notes.

What do we think about an eary morning start time? This way we get the morning light and there are less users of the park at that time.
Aaron Audio 10 years ago
I agree with that. We just have to hope our subjects think that is a good idea!

how early? were you thinking 8am start time? Then we could have the models arrive at 9am.

Auzigog 10 years ago
Hey, Jeff. You can take me off the list.

I met my PDX Strobist monthly quota last night and I don't want to stress myself out too much the weekend of the 25th and try to squeeze a photoshoot in.

Hope you guys have a blast. I'm looking forward to the photos that come out of the shoot!
afraid caption [deleted] 10 years ago
You'll be missed Auzigog but maybe I can swing getting to the Eugene meeting.
admin
metakephoto PRO 10 years ago
I'm planning on going to the Eugene meeting next week....We were hoping to have it at the Bijou Arts Cinema (which was an old mortuary/monastery) but they want $50 an hour. So until the Eugene group gets big enough, that'll have to be put on hold.

Hey all we never set a time for this. There was discussion but no set time. The proposed time was 8 am to 2 pm. Is that fine with everyone or did we want to vote on the times.

8 to 2
10 to 4
12 to 6
2 to 8

metakephoto PRO Posted 10 years ago. Edited by metakephoto (admin) 10 years ago
@OregonVelo: I'm still working something out with a possible alternate location for this May shoot...And I should know by this weekend if its a go or not..

But if people want to give there preferences for times feel free to speak up....I think shooting later in the day would be fun
Motochick~Liz 10 years ago
Hey everyone!

I would love to come out for it and model, but I would not be able to come out to shoot until the 2-8 time. I have prior arrangements in the morning, but if it was later, I would come out soon as I was done, and could be there until everyone was done shooting,

Also, am I correct, that is Memorial Day weekend, correct?!?!
admin
metakephoto PRO 10 years ago
@Motochick~Liz: That would be great...I should have the specifics up early next week.
admin
coupeowner 10 years ago
Mr. Photo,
Can you give us any hints as to what the theme will be? Are we doing the outside/skate park/sport thing ? No, I don't need specifics, but a general theme would be cool. That way I can start brainstorming some shots I want to try (a long process for this brain). I'm detecting a theme where you like to keep us in suspense ; )
admin
metakephoto PRO Posted 10 years ago. Edited by metakephoto (admin) 10 years ago
@coupeowner: think ??? theme, one that you wont know until you arrive. There's 30+ photographers already coming and ready to shoot anything, so I might as well keep you guys in suspense until you get there, so just come prepared for anything :)

I'll disclose the location early next week..
Motochick~Liz 10 years ago
@metakephoto: Sounds Great! Count me in then! and a theme with a bit of suspense.... Sounds like I should prepare a variety of looks! :)
admin
metakephoto PRO 10 years ago
I'll be releasing the location information later tonight.....Not that its a big secret or anything, but i've been waiting on a confirmation e-mail from the place i'm trying to book for this Sunday and if I dont hear back from them by tonight, i'm gonna shift plans and go with location #2....

Basically I didnt want to confuse people with one place first, then shift it a week before the shoot.
GeoFX Posted 10 years ago. Edited by GeoFX (member) 10 years ago
@Metakephoto: I am afraid I won't be able to make it as it's on Memorial Day weekend. Heading out of town. You guys have fun and stay cool!

We will be meeting at "The Cracker Barrel Grocery Store" on Sauvie Island @ 2pm sharp....then splitting the group up into 2 and heading out to 2 different locations. So please make sure to get there on time, or we will leave without you...

Do we need to rally to get more models? Ken - are you coming and bringing Tara?

Tara would love to come and I would love her to come but she'll be off working on a movie. I'll make a few calls though and see if I can find somebody.

-ken
afraid caption [deleted] 10 years ago
Thank you Ken! Tell Miss Tara we will miss her but wish her good luck from us.

I'll see if I can't get a few models as well, maybe Ashley & Pedro would like to come again, I know they enjoyed that last one.
rochellek 10 years ago
I will be there...but will probably do more watching then participating unless you end up short on models.
admin
metakephoto PRO 10 years ago
awesome, thanks rochelle
mrjonathanpotter 10 years ago
I think i might be up this time, my camping trip fell through on account of lame friends, and I didn't realize that it was memorial day weekend.
I think I'll be bi-pedal (two wheeled, aka on my bicycle) so as to not have to worry about parking etc.
*Delano* 10 years ago
Hey all, Just joined the group today and would love to be added to the list for this if there's still room :)

I'm a total newbie as far as lighting goes, and even photography for that matter, but I'm learning as fast as I can and would love to participate or even just observe!

I'll be driving in from Bend so any helpful tips on affordable hotels in the nearby area would be appreciated as well.
admin
metakephoto PRO 10 years ago
@*Delano: Possibly in St Johns or on Highway 30 you might find a cheap motel, maybe someone in this group will have a better answer...
DaveWeav 10 years ago
I'm sorry but my wife scheduled a BBQ for my birthday and just let me know about it! I'll have to miss this month. I'm looking forward to seeing all your pictures.

I've can now confirm that I will have Jennifer Robin and Julie Webb along as models. Tara will be in Seattle working on a film, but she hopes to be at our next meet.

As much as I was looking forward to meeting up this weekend for this shoot I just found out that my sister is flying in from Texas to stay for a while so unfortunately I wont be able to make it this time. Hopefully next one!

Well, we've collectively got plenty of umbrellas, right? And if people's flashes get water damage, we can just wait for the lightening. Synching might be a problem.

So I was hoping I could still make it out today, but I just found out yesterday that I have a major impingement to my left brachial plexus and I cant feel my left arm its really weak and discolored. Not sure it would be too easy to use for poses today not to mention its frustrating to not have full use of it. Was hoping after treatment yesterday it would calm down a lil but still is the same today.

Hopefully I can make it out for the next one!
