Mexican Cabaret Wrestling: Lucha Britannia are back!

"Imagine Cirque Du Soleil meets Monty Python with Muscles, Lycra, Fighting & Zombies!" - it's back!

Lucha Britannia have announced the date for their next event, so let's not miss out on this one!

For photos of the last one, please check out http://www.meetup.com/Simple-Street-Photo-Meet/photos/20248242/

The tickets are available from www.wegottickets.com and will sell out on Wednesday or Thursday at the latest, so please ensure you've booked your tickets by then. 

We'll meet at a pub beforehand in Bethnal Green.

Please don't even think of bringing a tripod; you'll be best off with a 50mm prime lens and zoom lens, if you have either. Lighting will be fairly low.

    Hello everyone! It takes ages to upload the photos here so I've decided to put them on my Flickr account Al Rikaby. I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

      I have difficulty uploading photos to Meetup using Safari so I upload with Firefox instead.

    I'm at the pub already - I came straight from my last meeting. I've grabbed two wee tables at the back. It's noisy in here :(

      Guess what, signal failure at Brighton so trains snarled up again <sigh>. On train now so still hope to be 8-ish. (Fingers and toes crossed!)

      We'll save you and the Leica a spot! There'll be three 5Ds batting their eyelids at it (and you) tonight ;)

    How long you'll be in the pub before moving to the wrestling place? Because I won't be able to join before 19:40.

    Thanks for the post. The colours are great. I wonder how bright the lighting is there. What settings on the camera?

    February 26, 2014

    • Chantal G.

      Absolutely right, Kin - for example dance requires a shutter speed of at least 1/160, if not higher, to avoid motion blur. Which I loathe.

      March 19, 2014

    • Farnz

      Not wishing to start an argument but I did mean motion blur (owing to slight subject movement) not camera shake. I shoot with a full-frame rangefinder camera so I can reliably shoot shake-free down to 1/15th with a 50 mm lens because there's no mirror slap. I agree about with the point about using faster shutter speeds for moving subjects but I was shooting *generally* static subjects., which helped to keep ISO down. :)

    And here's a trailer from the last time - how much of it do you recognise from our photos? :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n9w_gKHM_Lk

    Hi - this will be my first visit to the group. Hope for a fun evening. Photos from the last event look great.

    I've updated the details with the ticket booking link, as tickets will sell out in the next few days. An Ides of March theme - very interesting!

    March 17, 2014

  • Farnz

    Tickets bought, lens polished, face scrubbed, shoes shined (yeah, right), hair combed (okay obviously another lie). Now, should I invest in a Lucha mask from the stall in Brick Lane I wonder … ? :0)

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.
