Procession of the Species

The Procession is a great photo op.  It starts on Legion Way at Jefferson and ends on Water Street by Capitol Lake.  You can get complete details here: including a route map. 

I'm not going to be able to attend this year.  If anyone would like to be the Event Organizer, let me know.  Otherwise, this is just informational and won't really be a "meetup".

There is also the Luminary Procession on April 25, at 9:30 pm

    I love the procession and generally take it in. I start at the beginning before the start and then work my way to the end, taking photos all the way. The end is really fun because people are just wandering around.

    It's also one of the only times you can photograph children playing.

    However, this year, I'll be at Glazer's in Seattle taking an all day, free class in studio lighting from an international photographer. Interested? Let me know and I'll send you the link.

    Since this will be a first I'm
    Guessing I'll shoot and experience the parade then wander around a bit. I could meet somewhere and get recommendations or see you at the meeting at the end of the month.

      Thank you Greg. I'm basically a sniper. 90% of my stuff is[masked]mm. In a crowd atmosphere I look for detail. Face in the crowd, small detail, etc. look forward to getting involved. Thanks for getting back to me.

      Sounds a lot like what I do. I like to take my Sigma[masked] "Bigma" -­

    I think due to the nature of Arts Walk, this should just be a free for all. Some go down early, then come back to the parade, others make it an all day affair. I find I just shoot the parade. If anyone wants to get together for a bite to eat after the parade, I would be up for that. We can plan something along those lines.

      That's pretty much what has happened in the past, some of us get together at the starting point and then everyone kind of wanders off and does their own thing. I go right into the street to get the best shots. If you stay on the curb, it's tough. I try to stay far enough away not to block people's view. The Procession ends by Capitol Lake, and those wanting to get together after can meet up there. Wish I could make it, I think this will be the first time I haven't gone since I've lived here.

    The Procession is a great, happy event to join and photograph. Join the spirit of the Procession; make a costume, grab your camera, and jump right into the parade. Here are my pics from '12 and '13; look at all the smiling faces.
