Mystery Photo Walk & Scavenger Hunt

This will be the third Photo Walk and Scavenger Hunt. We will be exploring another of Madison's unique neighborhoods. You will be provided with a list of words and will be asked to shoot images defining the list of words. (If you attend the June 23 Photo Walk & Scavenger Hunt, you may submit two words that could be used for this Meet-up).

More details will be posted at the end of the month. I wanted to get this out there so you can plan. This event will be a THURSDAY evening.

    This was my first outing with the group. I have really enjoyed seeing the various interpretations of each word. There are many really interesting photos

    I am impressed with the photos you all have posted so far.

    I had a lot of fun taking pictures with the list. Meeting several people who enjoy photography as much as I do was great. I look forward to more events and meetings. I think I'll try the portrait event on Saturday.

    Can you give me instructions for posting last nights pictures?

    July 19, 2013

    • Bill

      Sure Marla, just above you should see a group of photos, with upload just below them. click on upload and you will then be able to add photos. For this page, lower resolution pictures work best. I use a free program called fotosizer. I usually resize mine to 50%. My original .jpg images are usually between 6 & 14 MB.

    My pics are up (and will be on Flickr shortly). All composition was 'in camera' (yes, even the black and white) - only reduced the file size and added the border/labels. Excited to see everyone else's finds!

    These are so much fun! Great group last night. You can never stop doing these now Steven.

    It was a fun challenge, although my photos are all sort of ho-hum. I enjoyed meeting some new people

    The words were relatively easier compared to the last walk I think. It was a nice meetup.

    Sorry- this looks awesome but I've been out all day and can't take the heat and humidity. Really looks like a good time- sorry to miss it.

    July 18, 2013

    • Steven B.

      Pam , we shall miss you, feel better soon

  • Terry M.

    Im going to have to bow out on this. I really want to do this but Im exhausted.

    July 18, 2013

    • Steven B.

      Understand Terry, hope you can get some rest this evening, and we shall see you soon at another one.

      July 18, 2013

  • Candy

    is a standard lens sufficient, or would it be better to bring something bigger?

    July 18, 2013

    • Steven B.

      Candy - bring whatever lens you are comfortable with and if you want to bring something else to experiment with, this is a great chance to do so.

      July 18, 2013

    • Steven B.

      I am bringing my DSLR with standard lens as well as a telephoto and my iPhone

    Sorry, it is just too plain hot for me today. Pls. continue to have these, as it's an awesome idea and I will show up for one soon! And have fun.

    Ugh!!! I have a Board meeting this evening! Happens every third Thursday so I should have realized that when I signed up for this outing... Anyway, reluctantly, I cannot make it this evening, unless I can convince the Board to adjourn early... Or I just leave... neither of which are likely... This outing sounds like so much fun and I very much hope to make the next one to begin meeting people who love photography and take some interesting photos!! Sorry!!!

      We shall miss you, there are more coming!!

    Sorry, will not make this meet up. I got a photo shoot.

  • Marla F.

    Thanks Bill for letting me know where you are at with Lightroom. See you tomorrow.

    July 17, 2013

  • Marla F.

    I was wondering if anyone uses Lightroom editing software. I am thinking of buying it, I am looking for some help learning how to download and begin editing. So far I have only used Picasa.

    July 17, 2013

    • Bill

      Marla, I have it. I am still learning what it can do. I bought Scott Kelby's book for Lightroom 4. I haven't had the time to go through it all, but it is an excellent resource. When thishttp://www.amazon.com...­ is available in e-book format I will purchase it and hopefully sit down and follow step-by-step.

    • Kenny Y.

      Marla, these are also a great place to start. This is where I learned the bulk of Lightroom from!

    Never been to a meet up or anything like this before. If anyone wants to chat it up I'd love to get to know someone before I get out and about with the group

    July 13, 2013

    • Steven B.

      Richard - glad you have joined the group and have signed up for a couple of our meet-ups. We are a friendly group of photographers with a wide variety of knowledge and experience. Looking forward to meeting you on Thursday evening this week for the Mystery Photo Walk on Monroe Street.

  • Karen S.

    OK to bring my friend? Long-time Madisonian, now living in Seattle, so would rather not join Madison meet-up group to RSVP.

    July 14, 2013

    • Steven B.

      No problem Karen - guests are always welcomed. Please update your RSVP that you are bringing a guest.

    Could I bring my five year old daughter with me?

    July 12, 2013

    • Steven B.

      Sure, that is not a problem

      July 12, 2013

  • Marla F.

    Tell me more about these walks.

    July 4, 2013

    • Marla F.

      Thank you Steve for replying to my question. This will be my first time taking advantage of a meet up activity. I'm glad I found it. Are you a professional photographer or is it your hobby? Has there ever been photography trips? I am looking for one.

      July 4, 2013

    • Steven B.

      I am a hobbyist photographer. Our meet ups have "day" trip events, we have not had photography trips that I know about.

      July 4, 2013

  • Adam C.

    During the week? I think I can finally make it to one of these. Looking forward to it.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
