    Sydney ap meet photo rally idea

    It's been awhile since I have posted anything on the Sydney AP Calendar but it's time to get back to our regular meets.
    One idea I have and would like some feedback on is a "Photography Car Rally". There are a couple of ways we could run it but not sure which option would be best and this is where I want your feedback.

    Option 1: We designate a location for members to meet at, but on the way they have to take photos of items listed on a prepared document which will be downloadable from AP. Once everybody has reached the location and has had their items checked off we can have a lunch/dinner and possibly a sunset shoot together depending on the time of the day.

    Option 2: Alternately, a couple of members does some scouting prior to the meet and takes close up photos of items at the meeting point. I could get these printed off at school to hand out to members. Everyone then has to go and find the items, take photos of the items and then have them checked off on completion of the task. Again, we could finish off with lunch/dinner/together shoot.

    I think this could be a lot of fun and a great social event as well as doing what we all love to do - take some pics.

    If this goes ahead we should schedule this event in October/November before it becomes too hot.

    Please let me know your thoughts on the idea or if you have any other ideas for options to run the event.
    CAMERA: Nikon D800, Nikon D7000
    LENSES: AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8, Tamron SP AF 90mm F/2.8 Macro, Sigma 10 - 20mm F/4 - 5.6, Sigma 150 - 500mm F/5 - 6.3 APO DG OS, Nikkor 18 - 200mm F/3.5 - 5.6 VRII,
    Sigma 70 - 200mm f/2.8 APO EX DG OS, Tamron SP 24 - 70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD, Sigma 85mm F/1.4 EX DG, Nikkor AF-S 16-35mm F/4 ED VR, Nikkor AF-S 200-500 f/5..6E ED VR

    I would probably prefer option 2 but that would mean someone misses out on the fun on the day (i.e. it would be cheating if they also took part).

    As for dates, I am pretty open but have been trying to organise a model for an AP studio meet on behalf of Paul (Raccoon) for Saturday 29 October so that weekend should best be avoided.

    Mentioning November in your post makes it seem the year has passed us by - is almost getting to the stage were we need to be thinking of an AP Christmas meet.
    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.

    I think either the 8th or 15th October would be good dates. Sculptures by the Sea is coming up in November if we want to do a Sunrise/Sculptures shoot. I don't care which option - I would be happy to miss out if the location is close enough to home for me to get the pre rally pics.

    I am away from 28 Sept to 10 October so the second of those dates is the better.

    Sculptures - yeah - I would think a sunrise is better for that for two reasons. The evening there are too many people around and parking is difficult. Also, the year before last, it was so hot that I expired by the time I got to the other end.

    Sculptures is from Thursday 3 November to Sunday 20 November and I always favour the beginning of the period in case of bad weather.

    With the car rally either idea is good, but preference to idea one, so that everone is involved on the day
    The first date in october suits me better.

    I agree with Peter on Sculptures times

    Avoid shooting with a 12 gauge shotgun. Use a Canon instead.

    Canon 5D, Canon 7D, 50mm 1.4, 18-55mm, Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 VC, Sigma 70-200mm f2.8, 580EX Speedlight. Facebook

    Not enough interest for this meet at the moment so we might defer it and incorporate it in our Christmas meet unlees of course there is a sudden rush of "yes I can attend".

    We will probably have the "Sculptures by the Sea" meet in November Ktoopi - it's usually a dawn meet at Bondi. Hopefully you can join us on that one.
