A SoCoPhoGro Fave -
We have once again been given permission to shoot the fair!
Please arrive around 630 in order to get your special "vendor/photographer" badge. You will need this badge to shoot at the fair. Ray will give some "how to shoot at night" tips before you venture in.
Our shoot time is 645-9pm.
Your badge does not include entrance fees into the fair - for that you are on your own.
You can bring guests but if they are not photographing, please do not count them in the RSVP as there is a limit to how many photographers can particpate.
Bring your tripod. Keep your gear with you at all times. Please be aware that they frown upon taking photos of children, unless you ask permission. Yes it is a public place, but in the past fairgoers (a few) have expressed concern of "people" taking their photos without consent". (not about our group, just in general) We know we can count on this group to be respectful and conscious of that, as we have in the past...
I am sorry to miss this year, my fellow photogs. I am involved in a work project and cannot get to Santa Rosa in enough time to participate. Therefore, if there is anyone who wants to help Ray organize this meetup, please let me know. You will need to arrive around 615pm to help organize the badges, and stay till 9pm to collect them once the group is done.
Capture some great stuff - KEEP SHOOTING!
