You know what would be kind of cool is to hear people talk about their philosophies of photography. Not really about technicalities of the process but the whys. Why photography, why the subjects we choose, what motivated us to start, and continue. Avocation vs vocation. Recording the experience vs having the experience... stuff like that.

I don't know if: 1. the DPG meetings are conducive to that as they tend to be multiple noisy (kinda boyzone) conversations at once and 2. if anyone/enough people would really be interested in something like that.

Discuss?

I would be down for that Edge. I think we can make that happen as an open conversation for those that want to. Im sure everyone can keep quite for a short period of time! right?

I'm seriously planning on coming this time and it sounds like a great idea!
We have done that in another group I belong to...it is really fun, interesting, helps to create different bonds and opens great ideas for future shoots/outings...GREAT IDEA!!!

Oops, scheduled a workshop that night -- which also means there is no "pre-meeting" at the DPI, either.

Is the Feb meeting going to be set for the 23rd, cuz I will lock that date in for DPG at the DPI starting at 6:00.

Unless there is some reason not to the 23rd is the day next month. Already have the room reserved too.

Soooo, if there is actually enough interest in this what kind of format should it take? One person a month? presentation? Random ramblings? A slightly more structured interview with Q/A as well? Something else?

Speaking for myself, given some lead time I could actually do a presentation... but that may be because I've been thinking about this over the past year.

I'd have to see it to get it. I don't get very philosophical with my photography. I do it because if I don't, I literally feel off, unbalanced, etc...

Nope...I just sat in the front anticipating people to show up because there was already a group of ladies in the meeting room. I sat there for 25 minutes because I was a tad early. Ha!

er, it'd be rather too quick I think, I've a busy week next week. I could easilly do it next month though.

As to the replies about not being good with words... I bet you, you guys would excel in a casual interview format, which, frankly I'd love to do as well (interview willing people) . Some of the best art openings I've ever attended including something similar.

Lets talk about it next week and we can start doing this the mnth after, in whatever format/s we decide.

Hope you feel better Edge!

And fucking green mill has again double booked our room. We need to find a new place to have meetings. Come tonight with ideas. We will be at the big table outside of the party room
admin
I am not sure I can make it due to a Union meeting.

Agreed we need a new place to meet. I will be thinking of places.

Why not Beaners upstairs? That used to work pretty well if I remember correctly.

I know it might be sacrilege, but we could meet somewhere and... not cuss (omfg), the only reason I say this is it widens our options.

Yeah, my back is still kaput... next month!!!

I don't think BH takes reservations but it is worth asking for sure.

I think I learned more tonight at the DPG meeting than any meeting so far. We talked photographers, workshops, cameras and in the end Justin blew us all!!
