    Please come to the North side so I can come down and join in! I'm getting bored in my retirement already!!! I would have joined you at Wilberforce but I couldn't manage it on the relatively short notice. (If you can't manage it, that's ok. I just thought I'd stick my oar in anyway. )

    If you do it really quickly, that's next week's Members Challenge covered off.

    Come along for heaps of coffee and chocolate stalls and lots of interesting photography.

    I'll be there with a few friends. You are all welcome to join us, drop me a PM and I'll send you the details.

    I am in for anything provided the date works. I haven't been doing much photography of late.
    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.

    Not too many ideas coming forth. I have to say I have been a bit slack as well - I have been planning my trip to Scotland so haven't really had the time to think about a meet.

    So far we have suggestions for:
    Waterfalls, The Aroma Festival and a sunrise shoot at one of the northern beaches.

    Personally, I would love to put some of my studio lighting equipment to good use before it starts to be covered in cobwebs.

    There have been 37 members view this thread but only 3 suggestions. Come on guys , I have run out of ideas - surely somebody could come up with some new ideas.

    We would need a model - do you know anyone Karen? The alternative is that we use each other as models. If someone can provide a big enough room or alternately find a suitable outdoor location I would certainly be up for it.


    When I say studio lighting I mean wireless triggered flashes with soft box, beauty dish, reflector, snoot, etc.

    I'd even drive to Cronulla for a model shoot, Narelle! I also have some (minimal) studio kit wasting away waiting for me to get a round tuit.

    I don't know anyone off the top of my head but i'll put my thinking cap on again! I've had no experience with flashes triggers or anything else of that nature so I'm up for anything. How big a room do we need? I may be able to wangle the boardroom at hubby's work in Crows Nest but it is not a big room...the size of an average lounge room with a big round table in it that we could possibly move out.

    Alternatively at one of my local community centres you can hire rooms for really cheap. We could all chuck in $5 or so for hire costs....the rooms are much bigger! Then maybe we could make a day of it and do a variety of shoots.....the waterfalls are very close to the centre and there's the beach or Pittwater etc for for those with with landscape yearnings.....just a thought......biggest catch is everything I've suggested is close to me!!

    What about a dance studio somewhere? Those are seldom in use during the day, aren't they? How much would it cost us as a group to hire model from Model Mayhem?

    Between $45 and $70 an hour depending on experience and usually a minimum 2 hours plus travel costs. I used MM a couple of times including "free" in exchange for photos but I have found both free and paid models unreliable from MM.

    Thanks, Peter. That's a bit more expensive than I expected. I wonder if it varies with location? A pity about the unreliability issue. I had heard that before as well.

    @Narelle - at this rate I'll probably be in Queensland on holiday before the meet is organised, so don't count my requirements too highly in your planning.

    Folks,

    I'll put it out there.

    I have spoken to someone who is willing to be our victim/model.

    They would like some details of when/where.

    They would be able to do Friday night, Sat/night, Sun.

    The other nights would not be good for them because of the next day.

    Anyway, if the date/time could be posted I can relay the details and then let you all know.
