    Hi everyone.
    I really have a great time at the shoots and it's a pleasure to see people I've seen before and meet new ones.
    I post my images in a new category that Ganesh named, Behind the scene pictures.
    If you click photos you should see the category.
    Hope you enjoy them.

    Models please be patient as I slowly post-processed your photos. I don't really want to rush them (though I am really trying). I have barely scratched my first camera (my second camera is still untouched). I admit in this photoshoot I'm indeed slow with releasing the photos.

    1 · February 12, 2014

    • Gerard

      Mark, your pics are great. They really stand out. You have great style.

    I enjoyed yesterday's shoot like I always do but so far,in my opinion it wasn't the best. Me and my partner had to wait around a lot because all the photographers were busy with other models and couldn't move from where they had setup even though there was two of them. I had told one of the photographers beforehand that I wanted a few shots with him but we didn't even get to shoot because he couldn't move from where he was positioned due to the lighting and there was always someone up there or ahead of us. I am pretty sure we still were able to capture some great shots with the photographers we did shoot but not a variety of them like I was hoping for like in the past.

    • Ganesh

      But I really appreciate everyone' s effort in making it happen and I am happy to see the pictures. Thank you all

      Actually I and David did split the models.

    Thanks a lot everyone for attending the shoot. It was nice meeting everyone!!!. Looking forward to see the pictures soon... Awesome work, models, MUAs and hair stylists... Thank you all again....

  • Mark S.

    It's a good meetup! It was tiring but fun. We have more models now than photographers. I do feel though we need to keep watch who is who. I don't think it's right to call me a freako for using a ColorChecker. I'm trying to control myself during the shoot. But if any of you have problems with me, be man enough to say it in front of me. I'm a nice guy but I don't tolerate unwanted remarks.

      Can we (photographers) setup before 1:30pm or you want us to setup at 1:30pm?

      February 8, 2014

    • Ganesh

      Mark, photographers can do the setup from 1.30 - 2.00 and shoot starts at 2.00. We will be using whole space for makeup ,so photographers are NOT allowed before that.

    Ganesh, what's the final pairing list and models for this upcoming shoot?

    • Ganesh

      I will be sending it today

    I'm an amateur and don't
    have any type of lighting.
    Is this meet-up suitable
    for me?

    January 29, 2014

    • Ganesh

      Thank you Mark!. Jescelia, please feel free to contact me at [masked] for any questions.

      January 30, 2014

    • David S.

      Mark... I rsvp'd. We can work together!!

      1 · January 30, 2014

  • Sylvester Harvey J.

    Are we required to bring our own lights to the shoot or are they provided?

    1 · January 26, 2014

    • Mark S.

      I advise you bring your own if you can. Although you will be partnered with someone whom you can share your lights, it's always best to have a backup. Last time I was sharing my lights but half way down the shoot, I totally forgot to share my lights again. In this scenario, if you have your own, at least you can still work as needed.

      1 · January 26, 2014

    • Ganesh

      Thank you Mark. I will be forming teams based on trigger & lighting equipment. So Please coordinate with your team members and bring lighting equipment based on that. We will be setting up 5 teams (3 members each) to manage the space efficiently.

  • Samuel B.

    Hi Mark,

    Thanks for the update. Is anyone interested in going outside to shoot?

    January 26, 2014

    • Ganesh

      Sam, there is first floor where there is white wall where we setup backdrop and the lower level rathskeller where there is kitchen setup and brick wall. Please see the pictures from last VS shoot to get an idea.
