Industrial Photo Shoot/PHOTO COMPETITION

 

My pal Dave, Brewmaster at Half Pints Brewery, is opening the doors to give us a private tour and chance to take some industrial photos inside his brewery!  http://www.halfpintsbrewing.com/

 

The tour takes about 45 minutes, and we'll learn about this local brewery and their history, what's in the brews, and how it goes from four simple ingredients to the beer we love.  Afterwards, Dave will give us some time to take photos inside the brewery.  Nuts, bolts, pipes, vats, etc!

 

Afterwards, we'll head upstairs for some snackies and refreshments, and hold our first ever PHOTO COMPETITION (and hey, Rachael...PRIZES!).  We ask that you please bring a snack to share with the group...I will be taking care of the beverages!

The photo competition isn't mandatory to take part in, however, why not give it a shot?  We'll show all the photos in each category and let your peers vote on the ones they like the best.  Highest vote getters in each category will win a prize.  There will also be a prize for the photo that gets the highest total amount of votes overall.  And don't think that your photography isn't "up to snuff" compared to anyone else's...if you are proud of it, submit it!  (NOTE:  You must be present to win.  If you submit photos but aren't able to attend, your photos won't be voted on).  The categories are as follows:

NATURE AND LANDSCAPES: These pictures include landscapes, outdoor scenics, nature images, sunsets, urban landscapes, seascapes, cityscapes, and farms - to name a few.  These images showcase outdoor beauty. Note: if you enter a photo into this category, please include the place name in the title or description of your photo.

ANIMALS: These contest entries are images of all kinds of animals. They can be pictures of pets - dogs and puppies, cats and kittens, birds, reptiles, amphibians - as well as photos of wildlife, zoo life, farm / domesticated animals, and even insects.

PEOPLE: These are pictures of people in all walks of life - parenting and family, children, cute baby pics, couples and relationships, models / fashion, people engaged in fun outdoor activities, etc.

FLOWERS: They can be shot outdoors, photographed in the studio, or in an arrangement on your kitchen table... and at any angle of view.

MACRO: Getting in close is the name of the game for this category...insects, coins, clocks, stamps, ice crystals, etc.

ELEMENTS OF DESIGN: These artistic images make good use of graphic elements of design. Looking for photos that showcase They can consist of any subject matter.line, shape, pattern, form, texture, perspective, etc.

WINNIPEG LANDMARKS: Winnipeg is a great city full of beautiful, unique, and interesting landmarks.  Capture their awesomeness!

SNAP HAPPY EVENT: Any photo taken at a Snap Happy event

If you plan on attending the event, please email me your photos for the categories you are entering at [masked] before WEDNESDAY, MAY 29 (please note the categories you are entering along with each photo).  Enter one, enter all...it's up to you!

 

As the brewery is in a less-than-ideal area for buses, etc, please leave a note in the comments section if you need a ride...perhaps there is someone in your area that can give you a lift if need be.

 

**If you are not 100% sure that you can make it, please don't RSVP until you're certain you can.  This meetup is limited to 25 people and we don't want people RSVPing just to hold a spot.  We get that plans sometime change, but if you're holding a spot until you know your work schedule, etc, that's not fair to others who know they can come!  Thanks for understanding!**  If there is a waiting list and you want to come, please add your name to it...as mentioned, people's plans do have to change from time to time and place may open up for you.

      I can NOT even begin to tell you my dismay over finding out that ALL my photos from 2001 to 2012 have disappeared. I'm currently working at finding some (but am at the mercy of someone else to help) and looking at work. Eeek!

    Holly, are we to bring photos for the competition on USB drive/CD or in printed form? And is there a limit on the number of photos one can submit? Twenty five attendees bringing one image for each category amounts to two hundred so the number could quickly climb.

    April 6, 2013

    • Andrea

      Oh, I thought we were submitting pictures taken at the meetup! Are we supposed to submit images beforehand?

      April 6, 2013

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.
