suggestion for a new kind of Meetup

I have an idea for a new format for a Meetup.  The idea would be to get 3-4 people, each of whom would like to make a brief (30 minute) presentation about something they enjoy and know about.  Someone could share a series of photos that they have been working on, perhaps soliciting comments.

I have a number of topics that I could share, as follows:

1) Video.  Not particularly on-topic for this group, but most of us have cameras that support video.  Some of the newer cameras will not only shoot regular video (many in one form or another of HD), but some now shoot both slow motion video and "fast motion" (stop motion) video.  There are free apps for the iPhone that allow you to create time lapse videos.  Some of you may want to learn what the options are, and how to play with this.

2) Macro.  I use cameras that can take amazing macro photos: perhaps we can share some of what we've done, or explain the techniques

3) Sports.  I've shot sports photos for years, and could share some of them, and tips for how I do it.

We have many talented people in this group.  I imagine we could have one of these sharing Meetups every other month for years.

Please get in touch with me if you have something you would like to share with the group.
