    Beach, Portrait, Picnic, Sunset, Light Painting, Something Different - Sat 31 March - Little Bay

    Greetings all, the Sydney AP photo meets have been a bit scarce lately so let's go over the top.

    The meet is for Saturday 31 March at Little Bay.

    I will be putting up more detail later but the idea is to have a late afternoon/twilight/night meet at Little Bay. Little Bay is a quiet beach in the Eastern Suburbs. The location is a little gem but please don't tell anyone about it as we don't want it to be inundated by people - lol.

    OK, the plan is for a meet with elements that will satisfy just about everyone and a focus on having fun and experimenting.

    The title says much of it - you can shoot the beach & rocks etc including the ones Christo and Jeanne-Claude wrapped up in the 1960s. Let's make this a bit surreal, let your imagination run wild.

    If possible, bring along a model, bring along some props, bring along some portable lighting gear, gels, light sticks, whatever.

    The meet will start in the afternoon, we will have a picnic on the beach - you will need to bring your own food and drink as there are no shops nearby, and go into the evening. The beach is not lit at night so you will need a minimum of a torch that has a few hours of battery life. If anyone has more powerful, portable general lighting such as spot lamps etc, they may come in handy too.

    If you intend coming, please post your details in this thread. Families welcome.
    Cheers

    Avoid shooting with a 12 gauge shotgun. Use a Canon instead.

    Canon 5D, Canon 7D, 50mm 1.4, 18-55mm, Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 VC, Sigma 70-200mm f2.8, 580EX Speedlight. Facebook

    too late

    this location is awesome, for a place which is very readily accessible there is heaps of positions for a whole plethora of photography, I have only ever been there for sunrise and each time came away with something quite different and having the feeling of definitely wanting to revisit.

    I know this is a afternoon affair with a models but remember there is heaps of lovely rocks to work with so scope those positions out first!

    eg.



    I may be available that weekend pending work commitments.

    I have a few ideas for our model shoot and the light painting:

    I am thinking with the model that I will bring along my old wedding dress and veil. We could have her standing on some rocks wearing the dress, no shoes and with a bit of a breeze up it should make the train and the veil flow in the wind for a rather dramatic look.

    For the Light Painting it would be good to have a collection of lighting implements such as an old bicycle wheel wrapped with some fairy lights that run on batteries. (Unfortunately I don't own either of these so if someone has some lying around that would be great). We can spin the wheel and hopefully come up with some interesting patterns. Another thing I would like to try is some burning steel wool on the end of a rope which can be spun in a few different directions. I can grab these on my next trip to Bunnings. We can also use LED torches with gels, laser lights or luminous light sticks if anybody has any.

    As Peter said, it will be a night for experimenting so if you have any ideas please don't hesitate to bring them along for a fun filled night.

    Count me in for this one. I'll be spending the afternoon scouting for pretty rocks to shoot at sunset I'll try to help by organizing a model too.

    I made one of these up early last year, needs some refinement but the concept is sound and can provide interesting results, if I do come I will bring the one I made up.

    Would be great to meet you too Karen. You can always bring the kids along if they are not too young - Ness (Sunset) often brings her daughter along and she has even modelled for us.
