A Day in the Park

 

We are going to take advantage of the beautiful weather we have been having and have our first Meetup for the year outdoors! I would like for all photographers, models, and MUA's to come so that we can have a chance to network and talk about upcoming shoots, workshops, and classes in the coming year before we start shooting. If there are particular themes you have in mind....please be sure to suggest them for upcoming Meetups.

The location I have chosen is Pundt Park (4129 Spring Creek Dr, Spring, TX 77373). I have scouted the location and think it will work well for this Meetup as well as the next. There is plenty of good parking, restrooms, and 380 acres to shoot on. Make sure that you have good walking shoes, sunscreen, bug spray, perhaps a folding chair, and you might want to bring bottled water to carry with you. We will have two 5gal drink containers there with tea and water as well as glasses if needed. I will also have a table and chairs for doing makeup and such. The trails are walking trails and parking is only allowed in the parking lot. If you plan on bringing a lot of gear or a cooler with you the I would suggest also bringing a wagon to haul it around with you. I will get there early to try to snag a pavilion for us but if not I will have an easy up.

Photographers: This is a chance for you to do some nature photography, work with models outdoors in a natural setting (there are woods and water at the park), work with mottled lighting situations, and scout locations to shoot at the next Meetup! (Fairy Fantasy) 

Models: This will be an opportunity to get some great outdoor shots! Come dressed for the occasion! There are restrooms there to change in if you would like to bring several outfits. Get with the MUA's coming to see what you might be able to create. Bring extra powder.

MUA's: Want to get "Wild and Wooly" with some makeup? This would be a good chance to go all out on some makeup! Check with some of the models going and perhaps you can pair up to create some great looks. If you have a model that you like working with then bring them.(Check out some of Lindsey Sterling's videos on Youtube for some ideas.)

We have a fantastic group of artists here! I am excited at the possibilities this presents for creating some great  images. I look forward to seeing everyone there.

    Being that this is my first meetup with you what all should I bring?

    March 14, 2013

    • Steven

      It is supposed to be warm and sunny tomorrow so I would bring your camera gear of course, perhaps sunscreen, and since it is a park you can bring an ice chest with your lunch and some bottled water too. I will have a couple of large drink containers there with tea and water also.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
