Yes, literally, the Roanoke Rescue Mission has asked for 2 or 4 teams of photographers from Exposure Roanoke who have the cameras and the talents to capture their remarkable 7th annual public service called BACK 2 School BLAST on August 12.
Can you deal with large groups of children? Can you handle difficult technical lighting situations? Can you add variety to photo compositions? Can you work in teams of two, a photographer and an assistant, then alternate to deliver the processed images by a short time deadline on a DVD or USB drive? Then be one of the first 8 to sign up for this meetup!
So, the first 8 people who sign up for this meetup will be offered the slots to document this 7th year of giving to the community on August 12 from 4:30 to 7:30 PM:
We will hold a meetup for organizing and planning and practicing Event Photography on August 5 from 7pm to 9pm at the Mill Mountain Star picnic pavilion between the overlooks:
This will be an optional planning meetup on the 5th for anyone and everyone interested in Event Photography in general. It will be a mandatory meeting for those planning on taking part in the Back2School BLAST on the 12th. It is necessary because it is for assignments of areas of responsibility, it is to form teams that will have practice shooting and posing, it is set up cameras and flashes to so the flashes work on wireless optical remotes and on radio triggered remotes, and it is a meeting to set up the teams that will work as a unit to avoid confusion when the action starts. So, as you can see attendance at the planning, practice, discussion, preliminary meeting on the 5th is necessary to be an effective member of the team on the 12th. Any one of us may not need practice but the reason we each need to be there on the 5th is not so much because we need the practice, but it's because other people need to be able to do a full practice.
So, please sign up for the Back2School BLAST on the 12th and also for the practice meetup on the 5th.
