I have an idea that I have wanted to do for a while and I want to share with others. The meet will be at my house. There will be 5ish places to shoot. One place will be a quasi-surprise, sort of an on assignment shoot.

This shoot is by no means supposed to be the main February shoot.

Place: Shane, Jeannie's and Matt's house
Date: Sunday Feb 8th
Time: Noon to 6 pm
Limit: 15 photographers, 5 models
Theme: Valentine's Day
Bring: Something to eat and maybe a prop that would go along with the theme.

Photography Requirements: All participants photographing models are required to submit at least 1 touched up/print ready image per model that they photograph and upload it to www.pdxstrobist.com. And there will be NO model releases signed between photographers/models during this shoot. This meetup/photoshoot is for educational purposes and having fun. This size of group allows more communication and sharing of ideas.

Please come to have fun, also I am toying with the idea of having 5 groups of three and one photographer shooting at a time. The other photographers in the group would be helping. This way the model knows who to work with and the photographer can achieve his/her goals without the model being distracted.

I wish I could join you but I've got a class from 10am to 6pm. If you are doing it after 6pm I could join in but I imagine that's not the case. Let me know if it is though and I'll come along...

Sadly enough the makeup artist needs to head out of town this week. Any one know of a MUA that might want to participate?

So I was driving by the Dollar Tree the other night and saw their heart shaped balloons in the windows. Would there be any interest in everyone one buying or chipping in to buy some of these balloons? I figure if is everyone bought three, that would be $3, that we could have some fun and make an interesting background or set. Thoughts?

ShutterCraze,

You can have my spot. I can't make it anymore, I have to go down to OSU this weekend.

Yay ! made it !

Just an observation. We have a waiting list for photographers but no waiting list for models. If we have a model drop out it could screw up the rotation.

Will you send out email some time today about where we meet?

i bought a big hart full of chocolates that i'd like to use in my set, and anybody can borrow it and of course have some chocolate, it would be bad if i ate it all by myself.

OH and please add Grant to the model list! he would love to come and be the gentleman for the ladies =)

It's been ages since I've been to a Strobist meet-up (or even posted on Flickr), but I'd love to swing by this gathering if a last minute spot does open up. I promise to bring lots of toys...

@metakephoto I think everyone would rather photograph someone a little better looking :-)
thinkable straw [deleted] 9 years ago
I can't make it this time, There's a conflict with work hat I can't escape, as a result, I wouldn't have been able to swing by anyway. -Sorry-

I moved up arian off the waiting list, he took my spot.
Tom.Lechner PRO 9 years ago
I'm running late today, I'll probably get there at 1:30 or so. That's what I get for staying up late watching The Wire dvds..
