PDX Strobist Meetup/Potluck/Lighting Challenge
Date: Thursday Nov 12th 2009
Time: 6:30-9:30pm

Cost: Free
Who: Anyone interested in learning or sharing their knowledge about off-camera lighting.

PDX Strobist Lighting Challenge #1
This Thursday night were going to have our first ever "PDX Strobist Lighting Challenge". Photographers will submit their name into a hat at the beginning of the night if they'd like to participate. And from there we will be selecting names from the hat, and the first photographer selected will be given 10 minutes to be as creative as you want with your lighting setup, model direction, props, etc. Then the next photographer chosen will be given the same set of parameters, but they can't repeat any lighting setups that have previously been done during the night.

So if you'd like to participate in the "PDX Strobist Lighting Challenge" make sure to bring anything and everything you want to shoot with, but remember you'll only have 10 minutes to setup and shoot. And there will be plenty of assistants (I mean photographers) to help you out if needed.

Each photographer shooting will be required to submit at least 1 photo for the model over at the www.pdxstrobist.org gallery and post the same image on the "pdx strobist" flickr group.


This will be a limited space RSVP event, so please sign up below if you'd like to attend and what you'll be bringing for the Potluck.

@kenneth barton: what would you like to see this Thursday night?

I was thinking it would be fun to have a tiny walk-thru of newspace @ 6:30pm to see their new computer lab, B&W darkroom, gallery and then head over to the studio for some food and a small slide show or video. Then around 7:30pm practice our lights as a group w/ one model. Personally i'd like to see how many variations we could get with lighting on just the white cyc wall (including gels, multiple light setups, hard light/soft light, etc..)
Can't make it. And it's so close to where I live!

Just found out my Photoshop class has been canceled for this week due to illness. I'll will try and get to Newspace just before 7PM -- this assuming there is still room, if not I'll stand outside and look forlorn. ;-)
Unfortunately I have to cancel! Stuck @ work later than expected. Too bad I was excited! Next time!!
