Evening Photo Outing: Pike Place Market

**I changed the time to 4:30 so we can shoot the sunset!!**   Let's meet by the golden pig (on Pike St. just west of 1st Ave in front of famous fish market). We can capture the sunset and then walk around. Feel free to keep coordinating with others to carpool as well as meeting before the scheduled time. 

Nighttime photography! Let's get out the tripods and shoot Downtown Seattle as sun is setting (given the sun is actually out) and the buildings are glimmering. I'm thinking we should meet at the entrance on Pike, just west of 1st ave. We can always walk around, head to the water and shoot by the ferris wheel.

If you guys have some other ideas as to where you would like to go around that area, please share!

    Sunset photoshoot was very exciting. Got beautiful pictures of the sunset, ferris wheel, downtown and met people with good photographic experiences. Looking forward to similar events in future.

    Wasn't able to find anyone until the event was almost over

    I lost almost everyone within 15 minutes. We should exchange phone numbers with at least a few people so we can text to find out where others are. I see that some comments were posted on Facebook but I didn't think to check my e-mail.

    This was the first meet up for me. We were at the Pike Place on a busy Saturday, just before sunset. It was a bit difficult to meet everyone given the venue. But I had fun and am looking forward to the next Meetup!

    • Rachel L.

      We're still around that grassy area north of pine St. Text me at[masked] and I'll give you our exact location once we move.

    running a bit late...if someone could post updated location for 445 or so that would be great

    January 25, 2014

  • Robert B.

    If anyone else wants to go early we could pick a meeting spot away from the market and take one car down make parking easier and cheaper. If you are interested let me know.

      J Gal,

      Give me a ring and we can figure out the details. Robert[masked]

  • Don B.

    I'd planned to attend but an emergency has come up and I won't be able to after all. Have fun everyone :-)

    I have to cancel. I have class tomorrow and a ton of homework from the 2 classes during the week. :(

  • Anita E.

    Wish I could go, but I have a volunteer dinner at the Mountaineers. It would have been great seeing you again, Jeremy!

    I'm coming probably a little before 5. Can we as a group agree to meet at the pig at 5?

      Pig is a good meeting place!

      January 23, 2014

    • Rachel L.

      Agreed! We'll meet at the pig at 4:30. I'm going to update the time when I get home today. After we're done shooting the sunset, we'll meet back at the pig for those who couldn't join as early.

      January 24, 2014

  • Rachel L.

    Just to clarify: if you head west on pike, past 1st ave, I think a centralized meeting spot should be in front of that golden pig statue (next to the famous pike place fish throwing market). Look for cameras & tripods! Ohhh also, according weather.com, the sun WILL be out. I might head over there around 4/430 to capture the sunset! If anyone is interested, post a comment on here. Looking forward to meeting new members!

    • Ann S.

      I will be there early.

      January 23, 2014

    • J G.

      Would love to meet early. Just tell me when and where. I also suggest we shoot the wheel in Seahawk colors after dark. In addition I plan on finding a good location to shoot the building with the 12 on it as well.

    I plan on being at the pig around 4:30.

      I'll also be at the pig around 430p unless I can't find parking in which case it'll be closer to 5pm.

      January 23, 2014

  • Robert B.

    I was thinking about heading down around 3:30 to get some market/people shots and then scope out a spot for sunset which is about 4:45-5:00.

      I pretty much drive everywhere. So Rachel if u want, I just live down in Leschi on the lake which is likely not more than a 5 minute drive from u. I can pick u up if u'd like. If not, I can pick someone else up as long as it's on the way. I have a 2-seater so I can only bring 1 extra person along. The only drawback is that I do have other plans Saturday night so I will likely leave right after the sun sets. Please let me know who's interested in a ride.

      January 23, 2014

    • Rachel L.

      Hey Carla- Thanks for offering! I think I'm good with the ride. I'm going to stay a little longer. Also, I'll have someone else with me so that probably wouldn't work. I MIGHT also be coming from somewhere else with my car so I'm not sure if I'll drive there yet also....

      January 23, 2014

  • BST

    Hi, I guess I will be there early as well. ~4.30 PM.
