    I'm keen for a meet provided I am well enough by then!(have been struck down with the worst flu I have ever had. Am over it mostly but have a burst eardrum giving me grief and I seem to be able to only cope with half a days activity before I then need to sleep for rest of the day at the moment) I'll put on my thinking cap for ideas.... I have a brand new tripod and 9 stop neutral density filter that I'm desperate to try out!!
    Canon 5diii; Canon 7D; Canon 3.5 15-85mm IS USM; Canon 4-5.6 70-300mm IS USM; Canon 1.4 50mm , Canon Macro 100mm 2.8 L IS USM, Canon 35mm 1.4 L USM, Canon 24-105mm L IS USM, CPL and UV filters, manfrotto tripod and Lowepro backpack plus dreams for so much more!!

    Livio - if we have a meet this time we will make sure you are with us and not leave you behind.

    Paul - Thanks for the suggestion. Maybe we can do that one later on in the year. I wouldn't be able to do the 18th and 25th as I am shooting my first wedding in Palm Cove,QLD as well as having a week's holiday. I could probably do the 18th at a pinch but I need the weekend before the wedding to make sure I am well prepared for the event - I don't want to stuff anything up.

    Karen
    - Hope you get better soon. I had pneumonia earlier in the year and it took me ages to recover from it. I knew you would be interested in a meet.

    Sounds good, I would be interested in something like this.

    As for suggestions, maybe a 'walking tour' of The Rocks. Or keep a theme of some sort like using 1/8 shutter speed only for a certain area only or something similar.

    Cockatoo Island Biennale may be interesting. If the art is too arty f@rty, then there are still the buidings and stuff.
    Cheers

    My photo-mojo has gone

    Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Metabones Speed Booster and Nikon 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 - almost as insanely wicked as sin itself... but then again, the Voigtlander 10.5mm f/0.95 is kinda fun.

    When we have a few more suggestions posted I will put up a poll then we can vote to see which would be the most popular. So far I like the idea of Biennale at Cockatoo Island.

    I've shot Biennale once already, it's absolutely fantastic but you need a full day to shoot it all, and you will need to get their first thing to capture some of the larger installations without fighting crowds (and some installations you have to get in a queue for). Just something to consider.

    I'd be up for a dawn shoot somewhere - there's a low tide on the 11th so something like Long Reef or Turrimetta (which has lots of green moss growing on the rocks at the moment) might be fun.
    Alternatively somewhere on the harbour ? Or Homebush ?

    Hi everyone
    the 11th is out for me, we have a 40th party at night and the boys have their last soccer game on in the morning, so I couldn't do morning either. Have fun !!

    Looks like it will be a dawn shoot as most of us are happy to go along with Glenn's suggestion......so I won't bother with the poll. I have never done Long Reef so I would opt for that location but if the majority want to go to Turrimetta I'm fine with that as well. It makes sense to do another dawn shoot now as the sun is only going to keep on rising earlier as the year progresses.

    Please post your preference for either Long Reef or Turrimetta by next Wednesday, 8th August then I can post up a meeting place and time.

    Actually, I don't really mind either! Both locations are beaches I have not been to so either will be good for me!!

    I haven't done either for a while. I have yet to do a shoot that I really like from Turrimetta so that would be my preference to give it another go.
