    Anyone up for another light painting Meet on 19th January?

    As our light painting meets are enjoyed so much by us all, I was wondering if anyone was interested in having another one while the weather is nice and warm. I was thinking the w/end of 19th/20th January would be a good time ( just before school resumes and I go back to work).

    I finally received my 3 ELC wires and I also have some red and multi-coloured LED christmas light (the same type as Karen's). I also want to look around for a hoola-hoop which I believe can make some interesting patterns.

    I am not sure of a location yet but am happy to have any suggestions put forward.

    Please post in this thread if you would like to come - we will probably run the meet along the same time frame as our last meet at Chowder Bay.

    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.

    Ok, it's official. The location will be at at Middle Harbour. You can find out more information about the area here: http://www.sydney.com/destinations/s...rk-middle-head

    The intention is to meet around 3pm. You will need to bring your own food, chairs and drink for an evening meal.
    Photo opportunities will include the fortifications and panoramic views.

    Parking is outside the boom gate in the car parks and regretfully paid parking (thanks to the Sydney Harbour Forshore Authority).

    Technically the park is sunrise to sunset so I guess there is a chance we may be asked to leave.

    Any chance of making it an evening meet starting about 6:30 or 7pm? Sunset will be after 8pm.

    Just a reminder here. With the current fire conditions, if your State/Area has a total fire ban on the day of the meet you cannot use steel wool, etc. Anything that uses a naked flame will be out. Just something to consider during the planning so you have plenty of alternatives in need.

    Yes I had also thought about the fact that NSW is on Total fire ban at the moment so steel wool definitetly out but plenty of opportunity for light painting with torches etc. I want to prcactise my orb technique and attempt some domes!!
    I can also bring a fire extinguisher......same one I brought to first light painting meet at Little Bay! He He

    I had also thought of it but we have enough lights/torches/flashes to have some fun. It will be a good opportunity to get really creative. I am going to try and make some light stencils and I will also bring along some props, e.g a guitar

    Only smoke, it was thick (like fog) for about 5 days, its only cleared and allowed the blue sky to get through in the last couple of days. Otherwise I am good. Just did my shopping at Coles (today in Tassie all profits from Coles stores goes to the bushfire appeal)

    I managed to buy a hoola-hoop and a light saber at a $2 shop today. I will have the hoola-hoop ready to go with the lights attached to save time.
    Karen - can you have your orb lights all taped up ready to go as I will do with the multi coloured ones. I think I remember how you did it.
    Paul - if there is no fire ban on Saturday (which I doubt there will be) can you have your steel wool twirly thing ready also.

    LETS MAKE IT THAT WE MEET IN THE CAR PARK AT 6:30PM AND NO LATER (just in case we get moved on and have to find another location)

    Don't forget to charge up your battereies if you are using them for your lighting implements. Looking forward to seeing you then. Anyone else that wants to join us please post in this thread by 2pm Sat.19th January so we know to expect you.
