OregonVelo 7:14pm, 2 June 2009
Summer is here and it is time to have dinner with friends and to take some photos. I am not sure if this will be weekly but we will see.

We will be starting out this year at Mt. Tabor. If you didn't know, Mt. Tabor is the only Valcano that resides completely with a city's limit (at least in the US).

Theme: Couples photography
Date: Thursday June 11th, 2008
Time: Dinner 7:00 to ... Photo 8:30 to ...
Dinner @ 7:00pm Hawthorne Fish House: People can come for a full dinner, dessert, or just drinks.
Photos @ Mt.Tabor 8:30pm

All participants photographing models are required to submit at least 1 image per model that they photograph. And there will be NO model releases signed between photographers/models during this shoot. This meetup/photoshoot is for educational purposes and having fun.

Also note that we may be enforcing the model upload rule for previous photo shoots. So if you have not done so please upload images to PDXStrobist.com.

Rules: Groups will have 3 or 4 photographers. Only one photographer is shooting at a time. The other photographers are there to watch and help until it is their turn. This is a couple’s shoot; couples are not to be broken up at any time of this shoot.

These rules have been set in place to ensure everyone has equal shooting time and that chaos does not ensure. If you cannot abide by these rules, please don't participate.

Format: Couples can choose to come in theme. Here are a few ideas:
Here's some ideas for the models:
American Gothic

Randy Kashka PRO 9 years ago
Can you add me to the list? If you're full is there a waiting list?
Would it be possible to show up at 8:30? I work until 7:30. Waiting list would be fine by me.

I increase the list to 15 because I got an overwelming number of models that would like to do this and Mt. Tabor is a big park, we should have plenty of room.

Yes, you can show up as late at 8:30. I would perfer no later because of our groups will be assigned.

Does anyone know the hours of Mt Tabor Park? or is it okay to be there anytime?
Laura Jennings 9 years ago
Mt Tabor Park hours are 5am-midnight. @metakephoto: is that enough time?
admin
OregonVelo 9 years ago
It is a Portland park, the hours are 5 am to Midnight.
If you are increasing the size of the group, does that mean that i'm in? I'm sure Randy wold like to know as well.

Kate and I are going to wear matching running/hiking/cycling outfits
Will there be trails? or some street? Maybe bring a bike as a prop?

Can we bring a change of clothes for a 2nd look?
admin
metakephoto PRO 9 years ago
that sounds like it would be fun zuzzie..and you should get scott to grow out a thin little moustache (ex. john waters moustache)
admin
OregonVelo 9 years ago
Yes, there are trails and a playground.
Tom.Lechner PRO 9 years ago
I'd kind of like to go, but tentatively. Depends on whether I have to work on the next day or not, and I won't know that till next week.
Looks like I can make this one. Is there still room??
Hilleri Elizabeth 9 years ago
Ok so I am boo-less thought about bring a blow up boyfriend! lol. If you know of any guys that need a 'girl friend' to model with let me know otherwise if needed you can fill my spot with another couple. I would love to come though!
admin

@Hileri: I like the blow-up boyfriend idea or possibly a cardboard cutout boyfriend, but sorry to say I don't have either of those to bring.
Laura Jennings 9 years ago
It'd be fun to find a card board cut-out of like Mr. Spock or a Storm Trooper.
Laura Jennings 9 years ago
Sorry the above comment was for Hilleri.... is there a more specific place to meet or is Mt. Tabor pretty self explanatory? yay!
DaveWeav 9 years ago
Where are we meeting for dinner? Did I miss something?
Squirrel de la Zuz 9 years ago
i have bad news, Scott cannot come, but i might come just to hang out
admin
OregonVelo 9 years ago
I have updated the location for dinner. Please meet us there. You don't have to eat but it is a group starting point, the park is large and if you don't know it, you could spend an hour finding the group.

Zuzzie and Hilleri, I hope you both come and maybe what we can do is pair the two of you up.

I stated that the shoot was for couple but my real intent was to have us as a group try something new.... that is possibly force people out of their comfort zone and work to light two people at one.

My objective for these group meetups has always been Learning, Networking and Having Fun.

I might just be hanging out. I broke my hand and don't know if I can handle a camera right now. The photog list was full when I signed on so I didn't clarify that. So, if you have someone else who is dying to shoot they can be placed ahead of me. Otherwise I'll give it a go and see what happens.
