      cool stuff - nice shots and great treatment

      Thaks Mike. I find it's easier to stylize the photos in this case since you don't have to make sure that the people look good. You have more leeway to get funky with the colours.

    Excellent photo ops everywhere, with great costumes and very accomodating zombies. However, there was too many photographers making it hard to get original shots-ask someone to pose and a hoard of photogs run up and takes the exact same photo you want to take!

    Weather ended up being great for today's Zombie Walk! I saw tons of photographers out there amongst all the zombies. Sorry we didn't really get to all meetup but hopefully everyone had a great time.

    Weather for Sunday looks good (only 30% chance of rain), but it'll be cloudy and cold at 6 degrees so dress accordingly.

    The different workshops and pre-events are starting around 12:30 but I'm not planning on getting there until 1:00 or 1:30.

    Oh, and please bring a non-perishable food item for the Ottawa Food Bank.

    See you all there.

      Is there an actual meetup for this at a certain spot at the park, with someone marking down who actually shows up? Or is it just a free for all-see you in the park thing?

      1 · October 26, 2013

    • Chris M

      I would really like to have a meetup of photographers before everything gets underway; say 1:30 near the make-up area? That will at least give us an opportunity to say 'hi' to each other; maybe talk about how best to go about photographing the zombie walk, etc... I think beyond that it'll be very hard to keep so many photographers together without getting in the way of what's actually happening so we'll need to split up.

    I had enough fun with the distortion my 10-20mm ultra-wide provides that I'll be taking it again this year and looking for some more bent zombies :-)

  • Caitlin Cat H.

    I will be there. Still not sure if I should be snow white (again) or corpse bride. Will definitely provide the evil looks for sure!
