    AP Adelaide Meet

    Hey Guys,

    I'm new here so I apologise if I'm breaking any rules but I am trying to gauge the interest among the south Australian AP'ers in a meet up. preferably somewhere central (Adelaide city or somewhere like that) but obviously open to any place where good images are to be had. Comment here if you're interested.

    Cheers

    Just saw this post. I would love to meet too. Tried organising a shoot down at Pt Willunga and Sellicks a little while ago but sadly no takers. However I am not detered. Surely we can arrange something.

    Just saw on the Canon Collective there is a workshop up on the River Murray on the 2nd and 3rd April. Anyone interested? We could carpool.

    Ok...So, I'm not in SA (I live just down the road...(in Aussie 'outback' miles ))...but really keen to check out your zoo, and, perhaps your botanical gardens as well sometime.
    "And, while I'm there, maybe participate in that sunrise/sunset deal as well?...."

    'Weather wise' (time of year), I'll have to leave that up to ewe's you guys
    I'm sure there's the possibility of getting a group together by then? ..................... "Am I Toooo optimistic?"

    Hi SA'ers

    I'd be keen to join the shoots. Particularly the sunrise/sunset and forests.

    Cheers

    Hi Jeanette,
    Went shooting today at Mt Lofty Botanic Gardens as it is in full autumn colour, though I was jostling for position as nearly the entire population of Adelaide was there. Those who are obsessed with selfies were out in force. Every good spot was taken up by a guy with camera photographing his girlfriend in numerous poses in and around the autumn foliage Too bad for those of us who actually wanted to photograph the autumn foliage. Anyway will have to arrange a meet up soon though not sure when and where. The botanic gardens maybe a good spot with it being Autumn and if there is a few of us we could stay in the city until dark to do some shots of Elder Park and the bridge to Adelaide oval. Always wanted to do that but I am not going alone. Prefer the safety of numbers. Would anyone (Elly, Gazza & Chebby) be interested in this??

    Hi HelenClaire ... definitely interested .. I've been caught in the city by myself and camera before (mummbles something about wasting my money on a night course with a stupid instructor who departed without notice and left quite a few of us alone) .. nearly lost my camera that night .. anyhow .. night time is something I'd love to practice and get tips from those who know a lot more than I do ... so yes, safety in numbers and a city meet at night would be great.

    How does a Saturday afternoon/evening sound? Probably the only time for me. Still waiting on the long range forecast for next Saturday (23rd). The Fri looks a bit dismal (cloudy 20C) so not sure if the Sat will be worse or better. I'm busy the following weekend so wouldn't be free again until May 7 which may be too late for autumn foliage at the Botanic Gardens, if of course you want to go there before doing a night shoot. Or do people just want to do a night shoot in which case it doesn't matter so much as to when.

    I wasn't so lucky. They were there in force by the time I got there. Though I went back today as the beautiful weather was too enticing to miss the opportunity to shoot the autumn foliage again. I went to the upper car park this time and it was actually only 1/4 full. A lot quieter. I think most people park in the lower car park as you don't have to walk very far to get to the lake.

    To everyone who posted in this thread would you like to throw around some dates so we can progress to securing a definite shoot? Two venues seem popular. The city including Botanic gardens and city lights and beach or forest for a dawn or sunset shoot. Would be nice to actually get a time and date decided on.

    I'm never a fan of getting away on the long weekend .. too many people on the roads who can't drive or don't care whilst driving ... anyhow, if people are free next weekend at any point, I am .. otherwise the following weekend I'm out of town and then after that ... no plans.

    Hi Elly,

    Ok. Lets do it! What would you like to shoot? Botanic Gardens/city lights? Or a beach sunset? As we live on opposite ends of town may be easier to meet in the middle and do a shoot in and around the city. Please let me know what you think and once we have something definite I can PM the others at the start of this thread who showed interest.

    We do live at opposite ends of the state ... lucky it is a small one

    I'm open to any really ... city lights is an interest .. mostly because I suck at it and practice would be fun .. never done a sunset and the colours in the sky at the moment are nothing short of stunning, so if the weather was nice ... interesting, let me check the weather ... 22C, sun, no rain at this point .. fingers crossed that it remains so .. anyhow .. honestly, all options are appealing to me, it will be nice to meet with another/others who have a clue to what they're doing and learn a thing or two and in the very least, just be out taking photos .. so I am happy with majority rules or your preference

    I get the feeling that a nice sunset is what you are leaning towards which really can only be best appreciated at the beach. Is Glenelg ok? Thinking somewhere central so you don't have too much traveling.We could get there for the sunset and then try out some night shoots as there will be plenty of lighted features around being a busy seaside precinct. I have done many sunsets but as for night lights etc I have never done anything really before so that part would be new to me too. Hopefully we can get the others to join in. Does Glenelg appeal? I am happy to go there.
