    Sydney Vivid - Saturday 24 May at 5:30 pm

    Well I cannot believe it is a full year since the last one.

    As a tentative starting time and location, how about we meet at the Sydney Overseas Shipping Terminal at 5:30 pm and we will take it from there.

    Let us know if you are coming and also advise if you are bringing partners, friends, children or small hairy creatures (well maybe not the small hairy creatures). Will post more details later.

    Cheers for now

    Peter

    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.

    Good to hear Nellie.

    Erin, don't see you often enough - not sure about Ness's stamina but the lights are on 'till midnight. If I can manage to come 400km for this, you should be able to make it from work.

    Cheers

    I am planning on going to Vivid this year, but was planning for a rainy night (like that ever happens in Sydney anymore) with a couple of other mates, but if that doesn't work out, would you guys mind if I tagged along with you ?

    You are welcome Ryan. Weather is always a lottery and I have no idea what it is going to be like in a few weeks time. You may get your wish. May have to throw some wet weather gear in the car.

    Thanks, I'll try to come along. My big concern is travelling in and out of the city by myself. Maybe I can convince Luke to meet me at work and we can go in together. Or a friend at work may want to join me and I'll just travel in with him. Definitely would love to meet up with you guys!!

    Just toying with the idea at this stage.

    Haven't been before so really have no idea of 'must have' lens etc. Ideally I'd like to do it with one lens, either of my Tamrons, the 24-70 or the 70-200. and my monopod.

    Appreciate some feedback from those that have been before.
    Cheers

    D600 : D7200 and too much stuff to list

    I'll try to make it along to this one, but as usual I'll have to check with the Leader of the Opposition to see if she has anything planned.

    Its good to see some new faces may join in.
    Cheers

    Kev, I think you will be fine with the 24 - 70. I am going to take my one and hopefully that is all I will need for the night, other than my tripod and remote trigger of course. I personally think you are very brave trying to get night time images with a monopod - you must be very steady, either that or you have a monopod with the legs.

    Thanks for the input Nellie.

    And no, I'm not very steady, but the VC in the Tamron makes up for it.

    The 24-70 should be fine. The 70mm end should be just about right to frame the Opera House from the Overseas Passenger Terminal. The 24mm end will get a lot of use too.

    I will post up more details of our meeting point in a couple of days. I may not be able to monitor this thread from Thursday onwards as I will be travelling and staying in unfamiliar surroundings and not sure if I will have anything other than my phone.
