    Update! Brisbane (QLD) Photowalk

    I've noticed a few more people from the Brisbane area popping up on these forums. Is anyone interested in a photowalk sometime in early october?

    I am now working on saturdays, so sunday would suit me better. Previous photowalk was at southbank, so this time I'm thinking of somewhere in the city. For a tentative date, how does the 6th of October sound?

    Or there's been some previous discussion with RnR about shooting night scenes... there is the brisbane festival coming up.
     
  2. I'm finally back home next weekend so a date in October would likely work for me also. The last one was good fun; was that actually 8 months ago?!

    Sounds like a good idea to me. I'd go for a date before mid to late November at the latest in order to avoid the heat if we can and most of what's left of September and October are fine for me.

    Did you have any idea re location?

    I'll keep an eye on this thread and see what date you come up with. Would be good to catch up with everyone.

    I can probably do sunday 29th sept if that works for others? saturday 28th is riverfire, which will probably be a bit too hectic to organise a meeting. Friday nights might also be an option for me. For those interested in going, just shout out what dates/times are good for you, maybe we can put together some sort of poll....

    Just a couple of events that are coming up in Brisbane;

    Trey Ratcliff Google+ photowalk - this coming Thursday at 4pm starting at Queens Park.
    https://plus.google.com/events/ctdp5svlqlrci47f2a29mn4f1ak

    Scott Kelby's Worldwide Photowalk - 5th Oct - various locations

    New Farm Park - New Farm, QLD Australia (New Farm Park Gazebo) | Worldwide Photo Walk
    Mooloolaba - Mooloolaba, QLD Australia | Worldwide Photo Walk

    I went to the Mooloolaba last year with a mate. Pretty awesome leader and very casual crew that formed up. Very nice scenery as well. A flickr set from this walk, all manual focused and I think I was still learning about exposure as well - heh!

    I'm going to working saturdays in future :( .. otherwise the worldwide walk in new farm sounds like an option.

    So let's try and get a date happening? Sunday Sept 29th for a daytime event, meet at the square infront of the Treasury Casino?

    btw, I jumped the gun, and went down to the laser/light show at south bank tonight with the missus. I don't mind going back and reshooting it again... if there's demand.

    Here are a few from tonight:

    That can work for me.

    As for the location, you just want to shoot people with big balls:

    I probably can't make it down to Brisbane, but I have joined the Worldwide photo Walk in Mooloolaba on Oct 5, so if any other ยต4/3 shooters want to join it would be great to see you there.

    I've updated the thread title with date. Next decision is time. Morning or afternoon? If we go late in the afternoon maybe we could catch some of the light from the golden hour

    I could do either but if we're after the golden/blue hour then I'd much rather have afternoon than morning. I don't get moving that early any morning these days :)

    sorry guys, something came up on the 29th sept that I can't get out of. You can either go ahead without me, or maybe something the following sunday?

    Since you kicked it off, you can't get out of the photowalk either. There's an unwritten rule which says that if you're the one who decides to throw the party, your attendance is mandatory.

    That means we have no choice but to change the date in my view.
     
  20. Especially since the rest of us have already bought presents and new outfits for the occasion.
