SXSW Photowalk

- SXSW Photowalk -

NEW MEETUP START TIME: 4:30 PM
NEW MEETING LOCATION:  Colorado and West 6th St.

Meet at northwest corner of Colorado St and West 6th St in open air plaza at 4:30 PM.   This will give us a bit more room to meet and socialize a while before the photowalk begins.  About 4:45 PM we will head east on 6th street down to Red River and 6th St.

First regroup point will be Red River and 6th St at 6:00 PM.

Second regroup point at Republic Park at 7:30 PM to shoot SXSW Eco Light Garden.  Look for us on the Southwest corner of Gaudalupe Street and West 5th Street at that time.  Should be just about sunset then.

Third regroup point at southwest corner of Congress and 6th Street about 8:30 PM for some after dark shots!

Join in anywhere anytime you can that day.  We have lots of photographers signed up for this one and it will be very crowded downtown so it will be hard to stay together as a group, hopefully the regrouping points will give you some flexibility in your schedule for that evening.


Basic photowalk around 6th Street area during SXSW music weekend. We will be shooting musicians, street performers and street scenes anywhere around SXSW. If you go to SXSW another night feel free to post your photos here.

    Lots of fun. It was entertaining people watching on 6th St! Regrouping points seemed to work well. Not sure how well the tweeting worked but I'll continue to try it out.

    Thanks to Allen for organizing another great MeetUp. Having several time/location spots was a great idea for a large crowd event...and I must say...using Twitter was a great way to communicate! I'm enjoying everyone's photos!

    Keep an eye on the weather and this meetup notice. I may move the start time and regroup points an hour later. Looking at The Weather Channel hourly forecast the rain chances drop by 6 PM. Check #PhotographersAdventureGroup on Twitter for updates.

    I made it to Republic park about 8:15. Didn't see anyone I recognized but made a lot of photos. Then, while editing this am, I noticed I had my ISO at 250. I wondered why everything was so blown out! Duh. So I really played with my very sophisticated program (iPhoto)and here you go - here are a few I saved from the trash.

    I'll be trying something new on Saturday. Since it's a large group in a massive crowd, I'll be tweeting locations and updates. I'm @darklightimages. Search for #PhotographersAdventureGroup

    Need to watch the weather closely; as of now, severe storms are forecasted throughout the day.

  • Jennifer

    This sounds like a lot of fun..and I need to practice shooting people. That doesn't sound right...but you get what I mean.

  • Cynthia

    I'd like to come but I don't get off work until 4. Do you think it would be possible to catch up with the group if I came down after work?

    March 6

    • Allen R.

      I think so. My plan is to start at the Driskill, walk down the north side of 6th street to Red River. Maybe down Red River a couple blocks. Walk back down south side of 6th street. At that time head over to Republic Park for the SXSW Eco Light Garden. I'm going to try to be there about sunset. Then back to 6th St.

  • Kirsten

    Will try to make it. I'll be doing a lot of this earlier in the week, hitting day shows W, Thu, Fri, and taking along my camera.

    I would like to be there to meet other photographers but... I can't handle this crowd, a few people yes but the crowd of people that are here are very difficult for me.
    Have fun!
