Melbourne Japanese Summer Festival 2013

The Japanese Summer Festival will be held at 10 Feb 2013 at New Quay Piazza, Docklands. I've been there last year and really enjoyed the Bon Ordori group dancing. Many things and people with traditional kimono to photograph.

Melway: 2E D4
Trams: City Circle Tram 35 – Stop Harbour Esp.
Tram 70 / 86 to Waterfront City Docklands – Last Stop

I've also included the information about the festival in the URL.

    Just discovered I had to be at the draw to win the raffle :-( I probably wasn't drawn anyway. Perhaps I should have read the ticket before I left, hey?

    I'm coming by train too but fro Sandringham. The easiest way is to just get off at Flinders Street and catch a Flinders St tram to docklands. Or you could make your way to platform 10 and catch a train to Southern Cross and walk. I'm taking the tram. Parking could be a problem with space.

      Don't worry Peter. I've looked at the website and have the timetable. I'll be fine and should be able to find some of the group.

    Better we meet around 12.45' because the 1st performance held at 1.05 PM. To get good pictures we need freely position In front Of Stage but If we late Only can standing behind Of the Crowded people .

      I don't see why not. If you are too far away from the crowd, nothing stopping you from using it.

      I won't be there by 12.45 simply because my train doesn't get in till 12.47. And I can't come in any earlier, morning commitment. But I will be there and will look for groups of togs if you're not at the buffet and bar still.

    Just having a quick look at the map for where it is. Is anyone else travelling by train there? It seems the Belgrave train isn't going through the loop so I can only get off at Flinders Street. Trying to work out if I should come in by car but how much parking would there be with something like this on?

    February 9, 2013

    • windu k.

      You can parking at Harbour town shopping center for $6 /day

    Hello people, as a new member to Meetup and a new to photography life I need to ask about a good camera to start with. I am so into taking photos for people in out-door locations and I need your advice about what is a good camera for this purpose as I will buy one soon to start this new hobby...
    Cheers

    1 · January 24, 2013

    • Kylie K.

      Hi Eman do you mean you are just looking for a good point and shoot or do you like the quality and depth of field larger cameras Dslrs have (out of focus Backgrounds)? There are many different cameras on the market that would be great for a beginner even second hand ones :) Also whats you budget?

      1 · January 25, 2013

  • BenG

    I've updated the meeting place, let's meet at New Quay Buffet and Bar. May need to split up to about 11+ groups of 4 photographers, that if everyone turns up.

    1 · January 11, 2013

    • windu k.

      Good idea Ben

      January 23, 2013

    • Fariz

      That's better, maybe 5-6 people, so we can get something afterwards. We should make it more tasty.. :-)

      January 24, 2013

  • Alex B.

    Looking forward to this. Will be any time for pre shoot refreshment?

    January 12, 2013

    • BenG

      Alex, not sure. We'll see. I'm sure some will just have a drink or two before. It's quite a large group.
