Cool, new photo ideas and adventures. Looking forward meeting new photag people! Peace, Mark

Are you willing to be part of a group where we watch out for each other? Some people are tempted to go off on their own during a meetup. This is not acceptable because in the past we've wasted time searching for people. Photo of yourself required.

Pretty high when it comes to getting that capture!

Can you remain calm in a dark abandoned building? Are you fit enough to run with the group and walk along uneven surfaces if the terrain requires it? If not, you shouldn't join this group.

Interesting. Night shoots are even cool to me

Are you willing to sign a liability release waiver? Not that we do risky meetups but because the areas require alertness and caution. Yes or No.

A fair amount

We basically field shoot and share photos. To join you must upload 2-5 of your recent photos to current Members' Photo Album. A visual introduction. You have 8 days to do it or your membership is cancelled. See Discussions tab in menu for directions.

None that come immediately to mind.

A meetup consist of a field shoot and Show & Tell where we relax at an eatery to show a few of our recent photos. It is a chance to learn from each others efforts - hits and near misses - and get in the practice of talking "photography". Comment?

I would have no problem with this. Weekends are sometimes busy with my own photog adventures/trips.
