Drinks, plans, chat for 2014

Happy New Year to everybody!

Hope you are keeping well and you had a great Xmas, perhaps you got some new photo gear.
For the beginning of this year, I would like us to gather for a drink or two and chat, meet new members and talk about future plans, photo walks, workshops.

    Hi ya'll. Anyone going into manchester sunday morning for chinese new year.

      There will be a few there for food but I will not be watching the parade, what time you getting there?

      February 2, 2014

    • Rich

      I was thinking about 12:30 because that's when it starts but I might only be there for an hour or two. I'll mostly play it by ear. I'll be hoovering around the town hall area first and then probably find some food.

    An idea that came up yesterday, is to try finding some old photographs of Manchester and then tracking down the location and trying to recreate the angle. I'd also like to do a "portrait swap." i.e. I'd like to work on shooting people, using light, finding the angles and expressions to create a solid portrait.

    I herd about new equipment by talking to others & idea's on practicing photography that i may not have had access to otherwise. While talking be talked about photography films so here are two stunning films about two amazing photographers http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2354205/ & http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1621444/ (this a film we talked about)

    At KRO bar I 've booked place for the MEETUP near the corner looking at the City Tower. But it s an open bar, so as I wrote below, there is no obligation even if you RVSP. Not this time ;) as they should have enough space.

    January 11, 2014

    • MayFLi

      I will be there for about 2:30 see you then!
