I really want to see someone dunk their wireless strobe under water!! And have it still work. There. You have been challenged.


**This is a private event, RSVP is required (and just to make things clear, anyone with a flickr account and part of the pdx strobist group is welcome to sign up on the RSVP list)

16 photographers max


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 strobist.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.

It’s nice to tag your photos with the model’s names as well as any other relevant information you can think of, but it is a requirement that all photos taken at the Meet-Up include this tag: pdxstrobist0709.

We are going to be having a BBQ dinner pot-luck. Please list what you would like to bring.

I think I might actually be able to make this one but like WJPpdx I might be a little bit late as that day may potentially be hectic for me. I've been away for awhile. I can bring ... chips!

I will bring some ice soda for the BBQ. I might have to bring some towel for myself if I want to shoot some photos underwater.
Aaron Audio 9 years ago
Does anybody have a nice shiny car they can bring? I was thinking since our models may be wearing swim attire, that would be a great shoot idea.
A Drifting Difference 9 years ago
put me on the waiting list, if possible. thanks.
jizika 9 years ago
Photographers are maxed out i see - im willing to model but i do not do swimsuit modeling- willing to get wet tho - maybe i can help if i do not have to wear traditional swim attire?
Aaron Audio 9 years ago
Looks like dannotti rose to the challenge for sinking a speedlight, and having it work after. Photos to come.
Randy Kashka PRO 9 years ago
Seen this one late - can I get on the waiting list? Thanks....

@jzika: i think swimming in a flowing dress would be fun to shoot
Aaron Audio 9 years ago
I changed the meet to 4pm so we can stay later and utilize the props we have constructed.
admin
ShutterCraze (NUEL) Posted 9 years ago. Edited by ShutterCraze (NUEL) (admin) 9 years ago
wow, ok the time might change things a bit. Maybe we should bring more substantial food than just the usual snacks. So far we have cookies and chips on the table. How about coming up with a menu and people pick and choose, that method worked great at my meetup at my place last year. We had a great BBQ.

Is there room to shoot the Lotus if I can still get the car there?
admin
metakephoto PRO 9 years ago
i really like shuttercraze's idea, so who wants to make up a BBQ registry and then people can sign off on what they will bring.
admin
ShutterCraze (NUEL) 9 years ago
Maybe we can have several people commit to a particular food category:

-meat/fish for grilling (i.e. chicken boobs, hot dogs, hamburgers, fish, steak)
-drinks (i.e. beer, water, soda, beer)
-finger food/appetizer (i.e. chips, cookies, veggie plater)
-salad stuff (i.e. green salad, potato salad)
-dessert stuff (i.e. pie, cake, torte, ice cream, beer)
-paper products and condiments (i.e. plates, bowls, utensils, cups)
dannotti Posted 9 years ago. Edited by dannotti (member) 9 years ago
I meet a body paint artist on flickr and he is interested in coming to the meet and do some body painting on some models if some are interested.

I will plan on a trip to costco to bring hamburgers and buns. Also some margarita mix for the Margaritaville machine. If a couple of people want to bring some tequila we can have the machine running at full speed, nice on a hot day.
Aaron Audio 9 years ago
@Nuel. yes yes and yes. We will make room. We can set it up in the back yard on the grass overlooking the gorge!
Stefanie Woods 9 years ago

Anybody else able to bring a bottle of Jose? We could use as many as we can get. Dannotti's wife makes some killer margaritas!
admin
ShutterCraze (NUEL) 9 years ago
@metakephoto- I don't have a scrim but I am bringing this:

In the kit it has a diffuser (I think roughly two stops) that I'm going to use to control the harsh sunlight.
admin
ShutterCraze (NUEL) 9 years ago
geez we have seven hours to kill at a cool location. shouldn't we attempt to do a fun creative pdxstrobist group shot? I'm sure one of the models would be nice enough to shoot us. just a thought.
nikonpdx 9 years ago
depending on how many bottles of Jose show up I'm not sure everyone would want that picture circulating...
Aaron Audio 9 years ago
We will have a lot of shade at 4. Remember those things you used to see when you went camping. Trees!!! I know us city folk dont see much of those often.

@sarahmarie77: I looked through the signup list but didnt see your name. Mainly I was just curious if your +1 is a photographer or just a friend that's coming along? Plus there's no way for me to send directions, without an e-mail address or flickr account.

So, any free car spaces in any cars passing by downtown Portland?

If I can't hitch a ride with anyone, someone else will have to get juice! Riding my bike to Washougal might be a little far.
