~ONE SPOT LEFT FOR PHOTOGRAPHER, BUT IT WILL BE 2 MEMBER GROUP.~ ~NEXT EVENT SCHEDULED ON 27TH Jul 2014 ~

* Few Spots left for MUA, HairStylists and Designers

Thanks to City Limit Harley Davidson Dealership in Paletine for collaborating with us on "Motorcycle and Model - Fashion/Glamour Photoshoot". The theme is MotorCycle and Model Fashion/Glamour Photoshoot. Its going to be another UNIQUE event with Hot, Super Sexy Models and New Harley Davidson Motorcycles! I will post some sample pictures soon. Its going to be a Super Sexy, Glamour Photoshoot with lot of fun! we will be providing rights to Harley Davidson to use the pictures for their Advertising and promotional purposes.

We are planning for 10 - 15 Models ,5+ Makeup artist & Hair Stylists ,5+ Designers for this shoot. The actual shoot will be from 3.30 pm - 7.30 pm and models will be rotated every 45 mins

Models - (No Spot left for models, I have few more models who is yet to join the group. I will add them soon) 

Its up to photographers to decide if you want to shoot alone or as group(2). If you shoot as group (2), you get opportunity to shoot 8  Models.If you prefer to shoot alone, then it limits to 4 models. So the decision is yours! 

When you Shoot alone - you will get 4 models with 45 mins each.

When you shoot as group (2) - you will get 4 pairs of models (8) with 45 mins each pair. You can coordinate with your partner to shoot both the models with in 45 mins. probably 22.5 mins each!

FINAL SHOOT SCHEDULE -

PHOTOGRAPHERS are allowed to join at 2.30 pm to do the preparation.

* Sorry No changes allowed - Done based on the shoot alone or group preference of each photographers.

 * Schedule will remain unchanged provided all Models are present and ready on time. 

 * Group Photographer - 2 Models are NOT guaranteed for photographers working as group for all slots.   May vary based on number of models availability. 1 is guaranteed. 2 is possible.

* Group Photographer -  Also when we have 2 models allocated, you can shoot separately with one model each for 22 mins and rotate with in your group. (You can shoot them together based on models preference, if they are not okay,please shoot them separately)

* Photographers prefer to shoot alone - You can work with other 'shoot alone' photographers with 22 mins slot if you prefer to shoot more models than doing 45 mins slot for each. But you have to work with other co-photographers. I wont be able to co-ordinate it.

* Its PHOTOGRAPHERS responsibility to adhere to the schedule, so that you get to shoot all models allocated to you. that's why we have 15 mins between each slot to go around and get the models that you have been allocated.  We can even group at one spot to do the rotation after each slot during 15 mins break.    * 5 Images: As mentioned in the shoot description, all photographers should provide minimum of 5 High Resolution Edited Images for the models allocated to you. I will be refunding $25 once the minimum criteria is met. 
* Please ensure to get some  beauty shots for MUAs of all models !

The release we have is common for all. It gives rights to Photographers, Models, MUA, Hairstylists, Designers, and ChicagoWFP. When we do the shoot at some location like College (last shoot) or dealership we extend the rights to them. I agree its not a TFP. But the cost that paid here just covers some direct and indirect cost associated with running the events. If you look at it from HD perspective, why would they take a risk of letting us use their Millions of $ worth of bikes and location if they are not benefited.

Photographers - Charge will be $50 for photographers and there is a $25 Deposit which will be refunded after Photographers upload 5+ edited pictures of each model they shot. The price($50) is guaranteed before Jun 7th. It may change after that! So dont wait!

Models - Leather vests,Chaps, Riding Jacket, Boots,accessories, t-shirts etc will be provided, But you have to bring your outfit that suits the event. Either bikini or short shorts, or any glamour wear. (NO SPOT LEFT)

      Hi Ganesh, I uploaded my photos to the second album. I was a bit late at getting around to this due to work and travel. In my haste to get the pictures up I never got a chance to brand my pics. Let me know if I need to brand and re-upload everything.

    I make an attempt to upload my high res photos all retouched and ready to print. I am not real familiar with google upload. I know I have to do it from Google Chrome. I am not sure the pics uploaded. They showed on my google drive but I don't know. I only did this once before and the person sent me a box to load the videos into. Also I could not find the name of one of the models. Her pics are ready to go as soon as I know her name. She appears in the first album as numbers 66, 282, 283, and 298. Her name was not included with these pics. Please help me here as I spent a lot of time retouching these photos.

    1 · July 7

    • Ganesh

      Hi Art, The model on 66 is Mona. I am sorry I saw your email and I am yet to respond as I was traveling last few days... You can upload in the second album using below link - http://www.meetup.com...­ .

    Photographers, Thanks to photographers who have shared the pictures in meetup!. I really appreciate your effort. But I havent seen any pictures or ONLY few pictures from some of the photographers even after 3 weeks, WHICH IS TOTALLY UNFAIR considering the effort from everyone to make it happen. Appreciate if you can upload the pictures in standard format ASAP. **** If i dont see minimum requirement for photos being met, I will be blocking them from our group going forward ****

    Please find below the link to the new album as the current one is reaching the limit of 500 - http://www.meetup.com/Chicagowfp/photos/22953312/

    Hi All, Please find the sample copyright format in the below picture.
    I used Font - Cosmic Sans MS regular 14pt with opacity 80%. (this font is preferred, but you would like to use different font, thats fine. But have the size as 14pt to be consistent) .

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Also i have created a google drive for our group. If you use google drive , please upload the pictures to google drive and give access to [masked]. Once I have all the pictures, I can give permission to everyone in the group. The size I have in there is 1 terabyte.

    1 · June 18

    • Samuel B.

      OK, please forgive as I'm not clear on how we should watermark our images. Would you like the final high-res files marked like above or all of the images we post? I've been running on auto pilot and want to post my images correctly. Thanks for your help!

      June 19

    • Ganesh

      Yes Sam. I understand we have to change the watermark each time to update all info. You can use your own watermark for now and can do one with all info at the end too after all your edit and you can upload in google drive if that's easier...

      June 19

  • Ganesh

    Hi All, Please find attached the release form. You have to logon to meetup group to download it.

      Team, Again please upload the pictures with the standard copyright format as all photographers have needed information. I have created Google drive to have a common storage for our group, so please upload to google drive with standard format and share it with [masked]. I can send link to everyone once i have pictures from all photographers.

      Thanks everyone. Please confirm me once the high resolution pictures with standard copyright information (Min 5 for each model that you shot) is uploaded, so that I can refund the deposit.

  • Benji

    Can someone sent me the link to upload photos? This is my first time doing this so not sure where to go.

    1 · June 18

    • Ganesh

      Benji, It has to be posted on the meetup (same page - here). Just click 'Upload' next to the pictures icon on the top and you can select multiple pictures and upload in batch

      June 18

    • Benji

      Thanks Ganesh. The "upload" icon is so small :-)

  • Carlisa T.

    Hey guy's just wanted to say that maybe to those on the outside looking in photography may seem like a simple task any body can take a picture and add a filter on ig but it takes talent to be a photographer and truly come out with a awesome piece of art. Which takes time and I appreciate every second you'll put into perfecting your craft! No I am not a photographer but I have been modeling long enough to know what it takes and to appreciate my fellow team members because at the end of it all we are all a team!

    8 · June 19

    • Mark S.

      Very well said!

      3 · June 19

    • Ganesh

      Thanks for understanding the effort Photographers are putting to get the piece of art! Photographers work doesn't end with that few hours of shoot!

    Very good location. They were very accommodating and moved the bikes wherever we wanted them. The shooting started late and we were off schedule from the very beginning but I still worked with four very good models who were willing to work to get good images.

      I HAD SO MUCH FUN WORKING WITH YOU THANK YOU SO MUCH ED <3

    This shoot was very well organized. No one got left out and the ratio setup kept all models and photographers occupied at all times which to me is superb

    June 18

  • DH

    Great gathering. Would like to hear from fellow photographers on what's working, what's not on the shoot.

    To me, the biggest challenge is to separate the models and the main motorcycle from the background. I saw Mark built his own set with clean backdrop. I resorted to[masked]mm 2.8 to give some blur, which has its limitations. Any other tips and ideas.

    1 · June 18

    • Ganesh

      I had the same challenge indoor. Out door is an option or using wall as backdrop is another option. In some cases, If its in a pattern (row), I incorporated those in the picture...

      June 18

    • Mark S.

      DH, my planned setup didn't go well as planned. I was really planning to go high key with two big umbrellas and white backdrop. It didn't work because we weren't given the time to setup the backdrops though we were told ahead that we can. So I had to do the setup while shooting with my first model! And the first setup that I thought of is the black background setup you've seen. To separate the model from the background, you'll need a backlight at least. Or you can turn the background into black either with a black backdrop or a beauty dish due to its sudden falloff. I used the black backdrop and beauty dish to instantly make the background black. And I added a backlight (though in some instances it isn't obvious). What didn't work is the schedule as well. Either we started late or we mismanaged the time.

      2 · June 18

  • Ganesh

    Any lighting tip for Motorcycle and Model shoot?

    June 13

    • Mark S.

      I don't remember responding any complicated or technically challenging setup. It was J-DuB who told about Joel Grimes. And I'm just telling Ganesh ahead what to expect if he follows Joel Grimes. I think the only technical terms I mentioned are "speedlites" and "strobes". The rest can be understood easily. "Lighting metallic objects and shiny surfaces are not easy to lit correctly" is not something technical. I'm just stating the fact that it is not easy to lit provided that there's limited time in these shoots. I don't really see where the "technical aspects" were stated from my post. And assuming I did, as photographers, you're expected to know some technical info about your equipment. After all, camera, lenses, and lighting modifiers fall under mechanical, electrical, computerized gadgets. But again, I don't know what's complicated and what's technical from my responses.

      June 18

      The shoot went well and I hope everyone enjoyed the shoot :) so I think we can forget about it!!!

    June 14

  • Candace

    Ganesh, thank you for sending the schedule. I have a question about the branding and HD's use of the photos. How will these calendars be distributed? Are they selling them commercially? Will the models be required to sign a release for the photographer? Will HD require a copyright release from the photographer (and model)? If yes, I assume that limited copyright permission for personal use business promotion would suffice.

    1 · June 13

    • Ganesh

      I understand. let me put it this way, If they like any pictures and ask for it, then we are obligated to provide it. But I wont do any commercial agreement.

      June 14

    • Ganesh

      For Min image reqt. - If the image is not good, - bad pose, blurry, or out of focus - I am not asking to upload those. But there were instances where photographers take card full of images (500+) and they dont upload any or only few. The shoot is for 4 hours ( which is almost half business day) and if some one claim that they just had 1 or 2 good image, I dont agree... thats what i meant.

      June 14

  • Ganesh

    Just to let everyone know - Nick will be doing video of the event and he will be giving the footage to the all.

  • David H.

    Hello All, I posted some photos in the FB group of City Limits Harley Davidson.

    Ganesh - I suggest that you request that the employees move their cars away from the building in the back, some photographers may wish to use the brick wall back there for a background.

    My general impression - pray for nice weather. Outside shooting may be better then inside due to limited space inside. It's a big enough building, but with the amount of bikes in there, it may be hard getting far enough away to get a nice shot with anything other then a wide-angle lens. Don't get me wrong, there are spots where you can do that, but not a whole lot of those spaces.

    Ganesh: Will there be music in the background...to brighten-up the atmosphere.....?

    1 · June 13

    • Mark S.

      I do prefer without any music as the music might not suit to everyone's style.

      June 13

    • Ganesh

      Not planning to have music as I am not sure if shop has facility to play music. some does. But not sure...
