PDX Strobist Meetup/Photoshoot

Rochelle and I are moving to a new house and we are going to have the condo empty again so we can do another "Empty Condo" shoot. This went pretty well the last time, and we have lots of interesting places to shoot although we might not be able to use the balcony or roof since they are redoing the siding on the building. Additionally, I would like to try and setup another "Jill Greenburg" station like we did at Vega Dance Studio.

DATE: Sunday Nov 29th, 2009
TIME: 2:00-8:30pm (Potluck dinner during meetup, so please let us know what your bringing) and from 8:30pm-9pm please stick around to help clean-up
LOCATION: John and Rochelle's Condo Directions
12600 SW Crescent Street (#408), Beaverton OR

RSVP REQUIREMENT: We will be checking the previous shoot list to make sure photographers have uploaded images for the models, so please post over there and let us know once you've uploaded your images.
www.flickr.com/groups/pdxstrobist/discuss/72157621588908108/
Attendance Limit: 38 Photographers / 50 people total- need to cap this so it doesn't get too crowded in the place.

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 pdx 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.

If you'd like to attend please post here and i'll add you to the RSVP list.

Please bring snack, food, water to share with everyone as we will go as long as everyone wants to keep shooting. There is also food under the condo including Mio Sushi, Typhoon, and Mingo.

rochellek 9 years ago
Ill be there as a model/ hostes as needed. We will provide utensils, paper plates, and cups. Stove and micro will be functioning if anyone wants to bring something that needs to be heated but we prob wont have any cooking items available.

Breskom- the place is full of interesting angles. Redish hardwood floors through most of the unit. Tile floors in bathrooms. Two level unit with a loft so you can do some shots looking down on people or stairway shots. It has a deck off the upstairs bedroom and you can climb up on the roof a bit, but this may be off limits due to construction. There is a gas fireplace in the living room and one wall is burgundy colored. The closet doors are all mirored in the bedrooms. Most walls are off white-egg shell colored. Place will be mostly empty, so if you want any props, please bring them. There is a large walk in shower if anyone wants to play with that for the shoot just try not to track water onto the hardwood floors.

There is also a courtyard in the complex next to the max tracks with a water feature that might make for some fun outdoor shoots before or after the event. (or during the shoot if things get too crowded).

6th to the last is here :-) is it gonna be really really empty ?
Les DeFoor 9 years ago
Is there any spaces left. I'd like to attack this one. Wouldn't mind meeting the portland shooters again... Thanks
noisy rabbits [deleted] Posted 9 years ago. Edited by noisy rabbits (member) 9 years ago
OK Terence will be there..

So I can bring paper plates, forks, paper towels, garbage bags. So I see that my offer of utensils is less needed perhaps, I will brink sour kraut I do not think it will be enough for 50+ people but I will see.

Infrastructure/logisitics issues? How many toilets for 50? Over 4+ hours. Thinking costume/wardrobe changes here!

40 shooters of which 5+ maybe women and ten ( requested models ) of which 6 are women maybe and gender is not obvious from user names signed up, any male models in the queue?

dath1974 9 years ago
Hey Jeff, you already are signed up for pizza, how about I bring whatever type of cake Rich likes? I could probably even convince my wife to bake one up all home-made and everything if I'm really nice to her;->
Randy Kashka PRO 9 years ago

we need people that are on the RSVP list and attending to post with what there bringing for the potluck.....so far I don't think 1 pizza and a bucket of chicken will feed 40+ people, but i could be wrong?

thanks, Tabria
dath1974 9 years ago
Kaytee, I haven't heard anything from Rich, so what kind of cake do you like? He'll just have to suffer with whatever you pick;-> Or I suppose I could convince my wife to do tiers, though if I ask for too much, I may end up making it myself (trust me, you wouldn't want to eat it!);->
dependent circle [deleted] 9 years ago
ohmy! I love ALL cake!!! :-) it would be impossible to pick just one! hehe.
rochellek 9 years ago
Terence- Two of the three bathrooms would work good as changing rooms......people are also free to change outfits where ever else they like....you just might have someone walk in on you.
Rich Burroughs 9 years ago
I love german chocolate cake, but I'm good with pretty much anything :)

I'll be bringing some sort of candy for a birthday model, as well.
dependent circle [deleted] 9 years ago
oh my gosh I almost said German chocolate!!
njl-photolog PRO 9 years ago
@metakephoto: Looks like I will need to bring more chicken and jojos. ;-)

OK, I relented and ordered a set of RF-602 Tx and Rx's, though I not sure if they will actually arrive before the photo shoot.

I wanted to workshop the idea of having two models at the window, lighting the room with gels and photographing from outside on the sidewalk. Not a new idea I know, but I'd like to try it if possible. Probably need to do this at sunset or just after.
admin
metakephoto PRO 9 years ago
@njl-photolog: well the condo is a couple stories up, so i'm not sure how well shooting from the ground/outside would work...though it might be fun to try and shoot from the balcony down towards the parking lot and have your lights down there with the model.
noisy rabbits [deleted] 9 years ago
So ad my wife's home made sour Kraut to the list from her in support of my "hobby"...

Thanks Rochellek for the infrastructure/logistics feedback. details details make it all work.
dath1974 9 years ago
German chocolate works, I'll put in the order with Ursa;->
Venittaya21 9 years ago
This looks like a neat and interesting event! How does one go about of becoming a part of the project as a model? Please, let me know! =)
njl-photolog PRO 9 years ago
@metakephoto: I'm not sure how well shooting from the ground would work either, the RF-602s may fail to trigger at this distance, but I'd prefer to try and fail than not to have the nerve to try in the first. ;-) I like the idea of photographing the models from the balcony as well so that is something else to try as well.
admin
metakephoto PRO 9 years ago
@Venittaya21: i'll e-mail info
dath1974 9 years ago
Niels, I thought the 602s are supposed to have like 100m line-of-sight from one review I'd read, or am I mistaken? Definitely you should try, I like the concept. I have been wanting to try a shot with a woman on a balcony with a scarf blowing in the wind. Probably a bit of a cliché, but who cares;-> I say go for it;->
njl-photolog PRO Posted 9 years ago. Edited by njl-photolog (member) 9 years ago
@dath1974: Yes, supposedly the RF-602s have a maximum range of 100m -- and work with Canon's 430EX (which is apparently notorious for generating RF interference and causing misfires Edit: With other RF triggers). Though, I recall finding one person claiming that they used them at 100ft with the Receivers & flashes located inside their car. I do plan to test them out at home as we have a number of steel doors here which I can use to see how well they work, or not, with obstacles.
As for the model with a scarf shot, I agree, who cares if it's cliché -- I heard one grizzled pro photog say recently "There are no new ideas in photography, just new photographers" ;-). I'm happy to assist you on this shot if you need help.

I'll pick up some stuff from downstairs (Mio Sushi). Probably some california rolls and veggie rolls.
Studio Gentry 9 years ago
I'll bring a fruit platter.
I'll definitely bring a main dish, I just need to figure out what. Oh, wait, I'll try to bring some sliced-up sub sandwiches. Yeah, put me down for that. And probably some beer, too.
Placebo #4 9 years ago
I'll bring fish sauce chicken wings.
Rich Burroughs 9 years ago
Kaytee, we have almost the same birthday and we both love German Chocolate cake, we have to shoot together! ;)

I am pretty much close to clueless when it comes to strobes. I'll be the guy looking confused and eating cake. Possibly sobbing, quietly.

"I'll be the guy looking confused and eating cake. Possibly sobbing, quietly."




I wanna shoot that!
dependent circle [deleted] 9 years ago
Rich, it is definitely a sign! Don't worry, I'll be eating that cake and sobbing with you.... sobbing because I will feel guilty for all the cake and candy I will be consuming that day.

Would it make you feel better if I bring carrot sticks...as well as candy. ;-)
dath1974 9 years ago
Carrot sticks? What is this, a damn health club now? Bleck!
Just dip those carrot sticks in chocolate first! And I'm with Sarah, I'll help light Rich while he's crying and eating cake so we can get some great shots!

Blue Light Art 9 years ago
I suddenly (more or less, sort of) realized something ... i still don't have radio triggers. I rely on my optical slaves and manual flashes during my own shoots and have managed to beg, borrow and MacGyver my way through the Seattle group shoots that I have attended.

Anybody shooting with CLS? Maybe you've got a spare transceiver? Maybe there's a corner for the technically delayed that won't be hit by all the properly triggered strobes? Or would I just be human clutter in the room?

Thanks for any feedback.
