    Good to see everyone having fun and getting some shots. Always great to be able to put faces to the names we see online.

    Some of my photos

    This is what you want to do on a photo shoot...





    This is what happens...



    Tripods!

    Or worse still, tripods and photographers!!





    My Olympus E-P1 and 20mm lens were clearly outgunned by some of the bigger lenses...



    Cheers

    It was a great meet and as can be seen from the threads above. We had a good number of Photogs turn up.

    I thoroughly enjoyed meeting the rest of the gang and we had a good time sharing tips and jokes. Oh we also took some photos.

    Following are a couple of my interpretations of the morning.

    It is always good to see AP members out and about enjoying the scenery and socialising, the images from the day look great.

    Of course, not knowing Sydney or the surrounds very well I had no idea about the meet up point and it wasn't till this morning that a news item caught my attention featuring Bare Island that I found out the reason behind it's name.

    I am sure there weren't any AP members involved ---- or were there?

    never a good mix, nudists and a pack of photographers and the police, surprised there are not any "action" shots to show . Great shots by the way, love the rock formations and texture of the bridge, looks like a great site. Worth a revisit perhaps for a sunset series. Well done people.

    No most of us were too busy to see whether the blonde girl doing the modelling shoot was going to get her gear off...

    To be truthful, those photos were far too over-exposed to publish but we have printed them out and keep them in a drawer for future reference.

    Having been born and raised in Sydney I was well aware of the adjoining beach, people can be easily seen on the beach from Bare Island with a 300mm lens but not with the "naked" eye.

    Sorry; that was all my fault. I insisted on getting out my 300mm Can(n)on, but the police told me to put it away.

    The site is very accessable and I will be returning once I get some wider glass. A great spot for both dawn and sunset.
