ShutterCraze (NUEL) 9:39am, 5 December 2009

The purpose of this thread is to give everyone a heads up on what we are trying to plan, and for you to first verify your availability for the date. This thread will not be used for getting on the photographer's RSVP list. Another thread will be posted for signup for photographers next friday. This thread is so that new people can see this opportunity and signup. You may post comments on this thread

PDX Strobist bar and band scene shoot
Date: To be Determined- a sunday in January 10th or 17th
Time: 11:30am-to-5:00pm
Location: 3341 Southeast Belmont Street
Attendance limit for photographers = 16max

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 And there will be NO model releases signed between photographers/models during this shoot. This meetup/photoshoot is for educational purposes and having fun.

The concept of the shoot: The idea of this shoot is to create a dark bar and rocking band set. There will be four sets where photographers and models will rotate every one hour. These sets are already determined locations in the Blue Monk. There will be a 10 minute set up time, then each of the four photographers in the group will have 10 minutes to shoot. The last 10 minutes of the hour rotation can be used as a free shoot on that particular set. During the last hour we have the Blue Monk before it opens for business to the public (6:00pm) will be our usual very chaotic free for all.

In need of: We may have already access to band gear through some of ShutterCraze and Placebo #4's friends. However it wouldn't hurt if some of you have band gear we could use as props. Stuff like guitars, tambourine, drum kit, microphone, etc.

Who can come: All models welcome, we need roughly about 6-8 models. Photographers will be limited to 16 max.

the Blue Monk Sorry for the terrible model.

I have a red plastic recorder.

The 17th would work better for me since I will be in Salem on the 16th anyway (but either day could work).

I have a Fender P-Bass and a Strat that I could bring. I also have an 88 key Yamaha keyboard, a cheapie mic and mic stand. I have drums too but I don't think I would be able to transport them in my little car. Let me know what you would like me to bring.

At this time either day. Guitar, electeric or accoustic.

Will make myself available for either sunday.
I'm in email chats with some MM#models that couldnt make previous shoots.... some with looks that'd fit this theme perfectly. Let me know as soon as y'all determine the date.

Either day is good (or will be made good). I've got two electric guitars, a small stage amp, mic and stand.

p.s. I didn't know you were so multi-talented! Hahaha ;P

Don't forget to come back to the group threads on friday to get on the RSVP list for this shoot. I will start a separate thread for us to signup.

@Jayesunn- @Placebo #4 has friends that are in a band that may model for us. Still in the works, we just need to be careful that the photos we take don't end up for commercial use.
I think either date works for me. I've got a bass and a Celtic bouzouki!

I can make the 10th, but not the 17th and would love to come if it ends up on the 10th.
metakephoto PRO Posted 9 years ago. Edited by metakephoto (admin) 9 years ago
either day works for me and how about we get 2 models and 2 bands for the shoot...And I could probably hookup the band portion of the shoot.

This sounds great! I'm good for either day.

Haven't been to a strobist shoot for a while, so I'm attending this one which ever day it ends up being. Unfortunately, I don't have any instruments but might be able to borrow some from friends.
Tom.Lechner PRO 9 years ago
Sign me up, I can do either day. I have a few keyboards, but only my tiny 30 key one is conveniently transportable. Plus a studio mic stand with a basic shock absorbing holder for a mic, plus mic and xlr cords.

Chris - the owner is letting us have the space for free, so maybe we can think of some thank you. I know he's nutty about the Red Sox.
ShutterCraze (NUEL) Posted 9 years ago. Edited by ShutterCraze (NUEL) (admin) 9 years ago
@Placebo #4- Maybe another way to show our appreciation is for all of us to stay over and have a social hour with drinks and food after the shoot. And present some kind of gift. I don't think Field of Dreams sports memorabilia is in Washington Square but they still operate here
ʎɥdɐɹbodıd 9 years ago
Let's pay him back with staged shot of him wearing his Boston cap that just finished pounding on a yankee fan :) Bird's eye view of Chris the owner, holding a bat, hat backwards showing red sox logo looking down at his beaten rival wearing a yankee cap. That'd be a good talking piece to hang up at his bar :P

I'm down for drinks & grub afterwards. :)

Even if you guys don't need me to model, I'd stll like to come to the after-party :-) Mmmm, booooze.

@Shuttercraze: I think you confused people by this posting, cause it looks just like the RSVP postings :)
ShutterCraze (NUEL) Posted 9 years ago. Edited by ShutterCraze (NUEL) (admin) 9 years ago
@metakephoto - Yah, for sure. I didn't know a better way to send out an idea and tell them this is not for sign up. I tried to word it at the beginning but people have just read right over it. My goal was to give people who don't check us out to have a chance to see an opportunity and sign up. Or else I would get the same 16 people signup, but not that there is anything wrong with that. I just wanted to try and get the other 711 members a chance. Bummer that I now can't use this thread as a signup because there are people that read my intent correctly and are waiting for friday's thread to signup. What a mess...

I'm waiting for Friday's sign-up.

@shuttercraze: it's not a mess at it'll just be good ol'e fashioned fair competition to get on the RSVP list :)
it'll be fun to see how quick it fills up...

@metakephoto- I'm hoping this bizzo sells out faster than a Backstreet Boys 2009 concert! :)

I'll add that they have a very reasonable happy hour which will be going on when we get done so keep that in mind. All we have to do is just order some food and keep hanging out downstairs. Minimal effort-good.

Great topic. Can't do thursdays this month.
Is it Friday yet?
charming alarm [deleted] 9 years ago

The 10th and 17th of December are indeed Thursdays but this meetup is future planning for January. Making those dates fall on Sundays.

I spoke to Chris (the owner of Blue Monk) today. He will have a bartender for us -and have the kitchen ready for after dinner meals and drinks. I elaborated on the "kicking some Yankee ass shot" Pip suggested to him. I suggested he could be spanking one of the models wearing the Yankee Jersey; he liked that idea a lot. Or we can just shoot a model in a Sox jersey for him. Either would make him very happy.
Does anyone have a Yankee jersey that doesn't mind it being desecrated?
dependent circle [deleted] 9 years ago
Did I hear spanking?
Sarah.Lynch 9 years ago
Sorry Kaytee, we already assigned it to another model. You didn't respond fast enough. Obviously you're not serious about your commitment here.....

b-b-b-but, I.... please?
