    Hi Guys
    As many of us are aware that we had a mini mu-43.com forum member gathering and photo walk. It was just fun but finished quickly . Now the photo thread has many posts from other members who have shown interest. I am starting this thread for an other Melbourne photowalk in 3rd week of Nov. We have plenty of time to plan. So please register your interest here , give some ideas .We are open to anything and want to make it fun filled event . It will be mostly on a Saturday or Sunday . Thro in yourself and thro some fresh ideas. DownUnderDog is a seasoned and experienced photographer I would request him to mentor us and help us with more and more tip. DUD also proposed a theme based photowalk which I fully agree with. So please feel free to join .
    Cheers

    University marking period finishes on the third week of November so I'd like to register my interest!
    Other members mentioned coming in from interstate - if they are we could probably make it a bit of an event or road trip to make their trip worthwhile. Don't know if it's enough time to book tickets though :)

    Hi Jan
    I am open to any idea as long it works for majority of people. We can easily do 12 apostles in a day and come back by evening .
    Cheers

    I like the idea. I need come down from Sydney . We can do:

    1) photowalk on satursday


    2) some short trip on sunday for those who are inspire to do so.
    12 Apostles seem like a good idea especially for people from interstate.

    ( if 12 Apostles is too far. may be something closer by )

    We can share the cost of petrol etc.

    Sounds fun weekend.

    12 Apostles is quite a bit of a drive, around 4 hours there, and then 4 hours back. It's a start at 6am thing and get back at 10pm ^^

    (I've done this often taking family members there!)

    Another suggestion would be to go down the peninsula, as there are beautiful wineries there... and wine...

    Guys,

    On the 3rd week of November I will be quite busy and have to give it a miss. I may be able to join the week after (24th Nov 2012).

    Not sure if John is already back from his Europe trip and ready for a mentor role on this walk?

    Also, I would suggest you guys nominate some alternative dates and locations and see what number we could get.

    Cheers.

    Bhupinder,

    I'd love to join but I'll be having my annual leave in Msia.
    Have a fantastic time!

    Another Melbourne (or close-by) walk

    The weekend of Nov 24 or 25 looks OK for me. If we are having many newbies attending, perhaps another walk similar to the first, to show where and what we have done. Then look next year to expand out to the country.

    I'm happy to mentor, but I think just a discussion first on equipment/techniques would be important. Every photographer has a different idea of what constitutes a good image. I'm a bit old school, you know: more camera - less computer. Other will use mega-processing and effects. So mentoring is more just a leadership role.

    I'll be back about two weeks before so I'm happy to see a date set in my absence.
    Cheers

    I think we need to fix a date. So we can book plane tickets early to get
    discount and accomondation.

    the walk.

    David,

    If you want to be here for the weekend and don't mind to stay with 'stranger', I could offer you a place to stay for the weekend (Have a spare bedroom at my place). I am ca. 20km out of the cbd but there are bus/train/taxi all around :)

    Cheers,

    Guys . I am seriously looking at the cost of plane tickets.
    Are we looking at the satursday or sunday at this moment ?

    ( last time I had ot book 2 months in advance and the cost of tickets were
    $ 100 return which is ok. )

    If I can get plane tickets cheap enough I will come down.

    thelaxong: I will see how I go with accomondation at this moment.
    thanks for offer anyway.

    Can we just lock in Saturday then? That way people can organise flights, accommodation, etc. People generally have family commitments on Sunday ^^
