Medium Format Shoot

Price: $10.00 per photographer.

 

 

Lets dust off our medium format equipment and photograph some models!

Whether you shoot with a Holga, Diana, Mamiya, or Hasselblad, all medium format shooters are welcome to join in on this shoot!

There is a $10 per photographer charge to cover the makeup kit expenses for the MUA (Make Up Artist).

I will be providing portable strobe lighting in the form of Norman 200B units and all day battery power. Also umbrellas, grids and light stands.

I will also provide PT-04 radio triggers for photographers to use during this shoot. Please note that these are cheap but reliable radio units, if you want to bring your own triggers, feel free to! Or if anyone has optical slaves, please bring them!

In order to use the provided lighting, cameras must be equipped with either a “PC” sync socket or a “hot-shoe”

You are also welcome to bring your own personal lighting systems as well, provided it is portable and battery powered as there will be no electricity available on location.

Now a few guidelines for this shoot and about working with the models...

The models and MUA will be working for trade (TFI - Time For Images) meaning they must receive some photographs from this shoot for their own personal portfolios. We all know film takes time with processing, but please respect the Models and MUA and ensure that they receive some photos within a timely manner.

Modeling/Posing is very hard work and can be quite tiresome. Please allow the models to occasionally take a break as needed.

Please respect the models personal barriers or “safety-zone”. Do not touch the models to pose them without their express permission. This is akin to groping and creeps the models out quite readily. If there is a wardrobe problem please ask the model to fix it, do not take it upon yourself to start pulling at the models clothes without their permission.

Do not force or badger the models into posing in a manner that they feel uncomfortable with. If the model is apprehensive about certain themes or styles, drop it and do not assert “peer-pressure” just to get what you want.

Please do not monopolize the models, remember that there will be other photographers wanting to shoot, please be kind and respectful of each other and if necessary take turns to ensure that everybody gets a chance to shoot!

I know some of these guidelines may seem obvious, but I just want to be certain that everyone understands.

If we all work hard together, we can ensure a fun shoot for everyone!

    Great people! Shoot went well!
    Watching Bart shoot his C330 and Sheri her RZ67 was great!

    Difficult to get back into the habit if you haven't shot MF in a while :)

    So sorry, something came up. I hope to meetup with the group soon.

    No particular theme, every photographer is different in their approach vision, as such each will interpret the location and models differently in their photographs.

    In my experience, having a theme is useless, because everyone will just do their own thing regardless...

    Models will be providing their own wardrobe. Will vary from formal/dressy to casual.

      Ok. Lets move on.

      I have hosted workshops as they understood ahead of time what was going to happen.

    Have we got a theme for this one? What can we expect in terms of models and wardrobe. I am sure there won't be nudes at city hall, so that is a given, but will there be formal wear, wedding attire, historical outfits?

    Sorry all, have to reschedule this meetup to next week.

    All 4 confirmed models have cancelled on us, apparently wanting to spend the labor day weekend with their friends/family instead.

    I have tried my best to get others to commit but cannot get a 100% yes from them.

    August 30, 2013

    • Chris

      Thats ok, it's going to be hot and I figured with the long weekend, something like this was going to happen.

      August 30, 2013

  • KGPhoto

    Any more info on the types of photography planned, wardrobe, models, etc.?

    August 28, 2013

  • KGPhoto

    What is the fee for? Do the models pay too? Is there a permit involved?

    August 28, 2013

    • KGPhoto

      I just saw that the $ is for the MUA's kit. Does that mean they don't want/get any images too?

      August 28, 2013

  • Ethan

    Would like to get a few opinions or suggestions from the members as to what locations we might shoot at.

      Pasadena City Hall seems like a great place to shoot models.

      August 27, 2013

    • Ethan

      Pasadena City Hall it is...

  • KGPhoto

    While I won't be able to attend, I wonder what is the nature of the shoot? Who are the models? Will there be a bit of pre planning to insure common goal or just a seat of the pants thing? I like to plan so that the right model, make up, wardrobe and location come together.

    1 · August 16, 2013

    • Ethan

      There will be quite a bit of pre-planning. I am currently getting the models to commit, as soon as I get 100% from them, I will post their headshots here. How many models I get will depend on How many Photographers RSVP. I want to get a good ratio. Meetups are difficult with too few models and too many photgraphers! ;)

      August 19, 2013

    • KGPhoto

      The "best" ratio will kind of depend on the types of photography you are doing. Some types we shoot fast, others, it is a waiting game.
