    Hello guys! I'm also new in the group and this will be my first meet up, I already live in Abu Dhabi so is there away to contact you when I get there at 3pm?

    January 4, 2012

  • Ghazi

    @Dalia - welcome to the group! :) you are correct - We are meeting in IBN batuta cinema parking at 2:00 and would drive up to auh. We should then have enough time to get there and scout the mosque for sunset photo shoot.

    January 4, 2012

  • dalia t.

    Hi guys. This would be my first meet up with this group. Just trying to get more information - looks like we are all meeting in Dubai then heading to AD to take photos around sunset time of the mosque - correct? Thanks :)

    January 4, 2012

  • Ahmad Al H.

    Lloyd are you going to attend with us or no ?

    January 4, 2012

  • adnan

    I may already be in Abu Dhabi so I could meet up directly from there.

    January 4, 2012

  • Amreen K.

    I agree!

    January 4, 2012

  • Ghazi

    How about meeting at IBN at 2:00 then..? Outside the cinema parking? Roughly an hour to get there and some time to scout...

    January 4, 2012

  • Amreen K.

    I was thinking v shld get to d mosque by 4 at least. I've heard there is good light around 4:30 out there. Don't wanna miss tht. So can v meet at Ibn earlier

    January 4, 2012

  • Ghazi

    Would recommend IBN batuta - always plenty if spaces and easy access... Those coming via metro would find it convenient as well...

    I would think meet at 3 in Dxb and then drive together to the Mosque. Where to park this time? JBR parking may be full, or the Walk could be jammed with cars.

    January 4, 2012

  • Ghazi

    are we meeting at the mosque at 3 or meeting in dubai at 3 (and driving in a convoy)..

    January 4, 2012

  • Ahmed

    Hi Lloyd....you're right. shooting people over there is alot more interesting and fun. Looking forward to meet you guys over there.

    Hi Ahmed... I agree, it's hard to take a shot that no one else has taken a 1000 times already. I think this is a job for a seasoned professional, but it's still fun. I'm not doing it for the competition, but for the fun. I think the opportunities lie in photographing the people in the environment, rather than the architecture, since that has been done to death already.

    Hello, I went this afternoon to scout some locations. It doesn't look like its going to be easy to get a new perspective. Seems like 4pm is the time to be around for landscape shots (from the eastern side). There's also a macro photography group for the contest, but i just don't understand how on earth can you take macro shots in the mosque !

    December 29, 2011

  • Sameh B.

    Hey guys..
    please check this site it may help. http://szgmc.ae/en/tours


    as far as I know even if the mosque is closed, still you can do shooting. but to go inside is what you will miss. I recommend to do this on 8.00pm so you can attend the tour with a tour guy.

    Hi all - We would like to do an afternoon session - went past the Mosque today at about 3.30 -4pm and the light was amazing.

    December 16, 2011

  • Amreen K.

    I don thts a wise thing to do. Don wanna take tht risk. :D

  • Peanut B.

    the mosque is closed to visitors on friday... but what about for muslims that want to pray? you said you're open to anything.. so you're muslim, i'm muslim.. we can hide our cameras in some burkhas?! :D

    December 14, 2011

  • Amreen K.

    Sure peanut, ur welcome to ride along. V can only go to d mosque between 9am-10pm. So feel free to come up with a plan. I'm game for anythg and everything.

    December 13, 2011

  • Peanut B.

    Hey Amreen.. soooo, i get that you wanted to do morning, but the timings up there says afternoon... so Im assuming this is the afternoon shoot. Also, I'm coming from the marina as well, so I'd love to hitch a ride with you if thats ok.
    Also, since the mosque is closed in the morning on Fridays.. I'm just wondering if we can squeeze in morning shoot on the Saturday as well... hang out all day Sat in AD (maybe check out open Art/photo Galleries??), and then come back for the evening.

    December 13, 2011

  • Amreen K.

    If anybody from marina side wants a ride along. Plz by all means contact me. [masked]

    December 12, 2011

  • Amreen K.

    December 12, 2011

  • Amreen K.

    Ok, let's confirm that it's open those hours and if it is we'll do a morning shoot and change the time. How about we shoot at a location in Abu Dhabi city afterwards and meet some of the members from there?

    December 12, 2011

  • Amreen K.

    I m missing the morning shoot on the 23rd. So I'd like to do the morning one. But if others feel they wanna do a late afternoon or evening, feel free to change the timings.

    December 12, 2011

  • Amreen K.

    It's a mosque Lloyd. How can it not b open for the early morning prayers? However, we can check to be sure.

    December 12, 2011
