PDX Strobist Pizza Meetup
Topic: Discussion/Future Plans (basically we'll be talking about the direction of the group and what you'd like to see at future photoshoots/meetups and what not.)
Date: Wednesday November 18th
Time: 6:30-8:30pm
Location: Papa's Pizza Parlour (private room, but still a tiny bit noisy)
15700 NW Blueridge Dr
Beaverton, OR 97006

Anyone interested in meeting up for some pizza this coming Wednesday? I ended up booking a room there last week when I heard the meetup at Shane's house was cancelled, and then on my drive home I changed my mind and wanted to have it at Newspace instead w/ the Lighting Challenge.

Anyhow, we have a little private room at Papa's Pizza if people are interested in coming. I just figured to use it, rather than cancel.

Unfortunately, I won't be able to join you. I have another photog meetup over here in SE PDX at the same time.

Though, I can offer some suggestions/ideas for the discussion:

- Picking a couple of the Strobist 101 or 102 tutorials, doing a walkthrough and perhaps breakdown of not just what to do, but why?

- Inviting a local pro photographer to do a presentation or "live" photoshoot walk-through of what is going through head when they work -- I attend a workshop organized by Craig Mitchell-Dyer several weeks back and David Bergman did exactly this kind of walk through, and it was the best free education I have ever received.

- The lighting challenge was interesting and required thinking on one's feet, not in my comfort zone, but that isn't a bad thing. ;-)

Just my $0.02.

I'd like to join in but I'm a gluten free pizza kind of guy. Might not be able to make it to that side of town in time... I'm interested in the topic and in participating though.

If it's in Beaverton, I may be there closer to 7pm, but I'll be there. My first meet with this group was fun. Would like to hear/take part in where it's going.

Well, I was going to mention the Anne Geddes ripoff idea, but since it really was yours I wanted to give you full credit.

Just pick a day and I'll bring the kittens.

I'll see if I can squeeze it in.

I would love to come to this one, but I don't get off work until 730...
Mmm, pizza. I would love to come!

Third Wednesday of the month are board meetings so I won't make it but let me know how I can help out in the future, I feel like I have gotten so much from this group but haven't given back much -- yet...
dath1974 9 years ago
Dang, this is getting to be a habit with these meets. . . Always scheduled for a time when I've just committed to something else;-> As such, I won't make this one either, but I'm interested in what happens and like Randy, I'd like to be able to give back, help out, whatever. . .

Oh, and what exactly is wrong with shooting kittens? ;->
If I'm feeling better I'll be there, this flu stuff is kickin my butt!

metakephoto PRO 9 years ago
@silverwolfe: nope, no shooting planned...but you never know when you get a bunch of photographers together in one place...
elric1911 9 years ago

Not sure if I can make it. In any case, I'd love to have more outdoors shoots, that is, if any models want to brave hazardous winter conditions.

I'm out of town on business this week and will miss out. I look forward to hearing the group's feedback.

I will have to bow out. A cold has been bouncing around my office, and it appears to be my turn.

Yummmm.... pizza! I'll be there.

Sorry can't make it to this one--although I do have a few ideas for the next year: I was wondering if we could incorporate more clothing on set as like costumes: for instance have a day where the models wear 60s style clothing or animal costumes or their favorite sweater or if they find an interesting vintage dress...

On the technical side of things: Perhaps we could go in on a group rental of some gear for a big weekend shoot. I know a lot of us have wish lists it would be fun to try out some strobes on set, with real models etc.

I haven't attended any tutorials yet but I think it would be great to continue these. Sort of a sans camera meet-up. Well, ok cameras can come--but it would be nice to be able to sit down and figure out how someone got a particular shot: film speed, f-stop, shutter speed etc. Kind of informal lighting workshops.

Sorry, something has come up - I won't be able to make it.
I can possibly offer a great location for both a shoot and even for a evening class.
I can talk to you about it next time we meet.
silverwolfe PRO 9 years ago
oh no, I forgot! work went late, totally spaced the meeting ;(
I'm sure it was interesting, tho!
kenneth barton PRO 9 years ago
Sorry about arriving late and leaving early. I just got a little to aggessive in my scheduling during a busy day of conflicting interests. I don't mean any disresepct and I'll be more careful in the future. A lot of good issues came up during the hour I was there so it was definitely a good meeting though.

WJPpdx 9 years ago
Are you going to post a summary of the meeting? I'm interested to see what went down....
metakephoto PRO 9 years ago
it's a secret :)
dependent circle [deleted] 9 years ago
ha ha yeah right, Jeff! I already heard what went down. :-P
I am a secret spy. I was behind you the whole time!
dath1974 9 years ago
So you gonna spill Kaytee? ;->
kenneth barton PRO 9 years ago
The details are secret but I'll say this much. Think fully programmable, highly realistic robot mannequins so we no longer have to deal with the models who don't show up.

I was elected queen and you all have to tithe equipment to me. I could use some Pocket Wizards but feel free to be creative.

i want to know more about these fetish shoots...
metakephoto PRO 9 years ago
The fetish shoots have absolutely nothing to do with the "pdx strobist" group
kenneth barton PRO 9 years ago

You'll want to contact Whoowl for information on the fetish shoots.
