I'd like to go. First time and not much strobist experience. I hope that's okay. Prefer evenings.
dath1974 9 years ago
Thanks for adding me, and just to confirm, I'm definitely in;-> I'd prefer something other than "early morning", but would shoot all day and into the evening if we've got willing victims (err, models). . .

I'm in but I new to this and this would be my first attempt (if that's ok, if not just let me know) so I have just the camera, but definitly would like to come. Prefer evenings

LukeOlsen PRO 9 years ago
@Charlene: I don't think there is a set topic to this shoot (I could be wrong) so bring whatever you want to model in. Depending on how long the shoot goes and how long you can stay it would be cool to bring a couple of changes of outfits.
charming alarm [deleted] 9 years ago
I would like to come to... I hope you all don't mind an out of towner n00b. I have only ever been to one other strobist meet up in Eugene. I got all day so any part of or the whole day is fine with me.
jack satta (fnb) 9 years ago
I'd like to try and make it. THIS TIME.

Are the (hopefully more) models thinking about ideas in terms of wardrobe (obvious: sexy farmhand :D)?

The paddleboat and backdrops look great. Personally, I like afternoon late evening; definitely never midday. Plus we can then get to drinkin' :)

Do we have any MUAs in the house?
Weeksy Photography 9 years ago
What's an MUA?

Sign me up. How about carpooling? Either from downtown Portland or the nearest MAX stop to there? No time preference.
Charlene Lauricella 9 years ago
@Weeksy: an MUA stands for Make Up Artist....... And for the record if there are any that are coming along.... Id love for someone to do my face up all purrdy!
Charlene Lauricella 9 years ago
FYI 2 all of you lovely photographers -- I will be bringing a variety of outfits, but Im sorry when I hear cornfield....... Scarecrow pops into my head... I cant help it! SO I think I just might have to make some part time magic as a scarecrow.. Put on your thinkin caps ladies and gents...... throw any ideas you have at me, im listenin!

hatchbackmedia 9 years ago
I am interested in taking part in this shoot. What is the time frame? Is there an alternate location in case of bad weather or is it just shoot rain or shine?
admin
metakephoto PRO 9 years ago
@Charlene Lauricella: I like the scarecrow idea for the cornfield or you could always go the country girl in the cornfield look. There are also other locations that we might be able to shoot, including open fields, a lake or th epumpkin patch.

@hatchbackmedia: the time frame hasntr been set yet, but the shoots normally run between 4-6hrs or basically as long as we can keep the models entertained. And there isnt a backup plan if it rains, so if you anyone here has a good backup plan, let me know.
silverwolfe PRO 9 years ago
yes, sexy farmhand can be cute. how bout sexy scarecrow!! don't usually think of them as cute or sexy ;)
Charlene Lauricella 9 years ago
@Silverwolfe: OMG -- Scarecrow with a sexy twist! oooohhh the wheels are turning........ Thanks a million!

@metakephoto: correct me if im wrong, but there will be a flood of children there right? trying to figure out a sexy twist still appropriate for the little eyes surrounding......... Im diggin the scarecrow.
Placebo #4 9 years ago
I have access to a large amount of very outlandish colorful polyester outfits that are normally used for Burning Man I can bring. If Punkey Bruster and Barney had a love child this would be her wardrobe.
silverwolfe PRO 9 years ago
@Charlene - ;)) I've had a sexy ranch-girl idea in my head for awhile... so natural jump to the scarecrow ;)

not sure I can come yet, so won't sign up ;(

@njl-photolog: Just a heads up, it's not guaranteed that you'll be photographing with any one specific model during the shoot. But the odds are in your favor that you can shoot with zuzzie again :)

coupeowner 9 years ago
Jeff,
Looks like they are open 9-5 on Saturdays. Can we be there before or after those hours? That would eliminate the worry about offending/being in the way of the public.
dath1974 9 years ago
@coupeowner: They're actually open 9am-10pm Saturday. I have already gotten the go ahead from one of the operators/owners(?) on using the space with the condition we pay entry and don't get in the way of the general public. I think that's probably the best we can hope for given the size of their operation and hours they're running it on Saturdays.

metakephoto PRO 9 years ago
The cornfield is huge and i'm sure we can hide in it pretty good. And since we are doing this in September I don't think the maze will be too crowded, I know for myself I don't go to pumpkin farms until at least October. And this place, the main stay of the attraction is the boat ride, train ride, pumpkin patch and kiddie hay maze/pony rides.

is there a max number of photographers? i have never been to one of this and would like to give it a try.

@metakephoto: Understood. I have a DVD of photos of Zuzzie from another photoshoot that I wanted to give to her. Even if I only get 30 secs. to hand that to her then that will good. ;-)

The shoot time has been posted, and hopefully it works out for most people, I just figured to start it at 1pm, so people can eat lunch beforehand and be ready to shoot when they arrive.

TIME: 1pm-7pm (followed by dinner at a nearby restaraunt if people are interested)

Bad timing for me, I really need to attend to sponge what I can from other photographers. Having a birthday gathering on Saturday, can't wait to see pictures from this shoot.

Bad Timing. I just got back to Portland and looked at my schedule for the next week. Saturday is both the the Petit Le Mans and the Conflux Dark Arts Festival for me so I’m sorry I won’t be able to participate in this meet. See you all next time though.

dath1974 9 years ago
@Jeff - Yeah, most likely that's what I mean;-> My wife wants to tag along.

I may be able to bring someone who could do makeup for the models as well, but I haven't checked on that yet and if she did come, she'd probably want to jet after doing the makeup.
Sarah.Lynch 9 years ago
I might have a couple of models - any objections to a 14 year old with no experience and her mom?
dath1974 9 years ago
Sarah, my vote would be as long as we've got a parent, bring her. I've been wondering what other opinions are about shooting with underage models. Seems to me like the best bet is to just ensure a parent/guardian is always present, but maybe that's overkill as long as you aren't left alone?
admin
LukeOlsen PRO 9 years ago
@dath1974: I think as a rule for these shoots that a parent should always be present for underage models. I don't think it is overkill at all.
admin
metakephoto PRO 9 years ago
I've already told two models that are under the age of 18, that the shoots are 18+
Sarah.Lynch 9 years ago
Thanks for that clarification.

I'm not interested in that kind of shot, I was wondering if anyone else is. It is a friend of mine www.flickr.com/photos/sarah22333/sets/72157618511153810/ who I've shot before and she would model along with her kid (though not necessarily together) I just didn't want to invite them and then not have anyone want to shoot her.

Sorry if this sounds strange, but her daughter would like to check out modeling and since I don't do kid shots I thought I'd ask.
admin
metakephoto PRO 9 years ago
I think having underage models at the shoots can be a touchy subject. I would like to hear from some more people in this group and their opinions about this.
Sarah.Lynch Posted 9 years ago. Edited by Sarah.Lynch (member) 9 years ago
I'll just tell her no and let you guys debate for future events. I was just trying to get more models since we seemed a little thin on that side. No worries.
admin
metakephoto PRO 9 years ago
thanks for trying to get people to come out and model sarah.....
admin
LukeOlsen PRO 9 years ago
I think it would be fine if the whole shoot was like a kid shoot with the parents. I think it gets a little dicey when we start mixing the two. Then there is the whole model release thing... if that applies even when the parent is around.
Sarah.Lynch 9 years ago
Sheri www.flickr.com/photos/sarah22333/sets/72157622304630505/ might come but not until 4. And Hollie might still make it herself. Everyone else I know runs when they see the camera.
admin
ShutterCraze (NUEL) 9 years ago
I feel we should stay away from inviting models under the age of 18 for various reasons. We should start a separate discussion about this topic for future reference.

@datang: there's no cap for photographers or models this month, so far....
and worst case by having so many photographers is that you'll end up shooting a little less and helping out/learning a little more.

@jack satta (fnb): Depends on where you shoot but I suspect you could probably get someone to hold your light stand(s) for at least a little while. Prophoto carries sandbags too...
admin

Yeah sandbags are always a good thought...I wish i had sandbags last weekend because I had my WL1600 crash to the ground from about 6ft up, and it completely wrecked my umbrella (which took the blunt of the impact), but the light is still working :)
