We Shoot....Winter Wonderland!

We are heading over to the launch night of Winter Wonderland on Friday, 23rd November 2012, in Hyde Park to capture the thrills and spills of the fair!

MEETING POINT: HYDE PARK CORNER TUBE STATION (EXIT 1)


Don't forget to bring your prime lenses for some sharp low light shooting.

Of course we will stop off at one of the many onsite bars or cafes for hot toddies and/or food!

PLEASE ADHERE TO THE FOLLOWING RULES WHEN SHOOTING AT THIS VENUE

Please see below our rules for filming and photography on site:

  • Photography and filming on site is allowed for personal use only
  • Do not take cameras onto the ice rink
  • Do not take pictures or film the children
  • Do not block pathways with tripods otherwise security will ask you to move on

As many have RSVPd to this event, we will need to split into two-three smaller groups on arrival to prevent any issues with security who are more strict on their rules this year. WSP member Farlon Rahaman will be helping to co-host this event.

I will be given passes for the group members so security know we are a group of 'amateur' photographers. If you choose to break these rules then you run the risk of being stopped and possibly asked to leave the premises by security!

Attractions include:

  • Ice Rink
  • The Magical Ice Kingdom
  • Zippos Christmas Circus
  • Giant Observation Wheel
  • Thrill Seeking Rides
  • Christmas Market

    Little bit slow off the block as WW had not got their act together but that was not Linda's fault, but it gave us time to chat and form little groups before the off so that was a bonus. For those of us who want practice with like minded people at a great price rather than tuition and a hefty pricetag this group is ideal

    Linda,
    I can't make it this evening.
    Don't worry about the refund, but if anyone wants a place, there's a spare one now.

    November 23, 2012

    • Linda

      Hi Vanita, as mentioned by Farlon and myself in your previous comments you need to go and RSVP yourself if you see a spot available and just grab it.

      November 23, 2012

    • Linda

      Thank you Kieran for letting us know. Cheers.

      November 23, 2012

  • Vanita

    Hi

    Please let me know if a spot becomes available. I tried to RSVP a bit too late.

    November 22, 2012

    • Vanita

      Thanks for letting me know.

      I am prepared to pull out as I plan on going again next week. Also there is an exhibition I want to go to, so if anyone wants to take my place, feel free. I am not bothered about getting a refund.

    A monopod might be a good compromise as it won't get in people's way though, as I don't have one, I will be taking Linda's advice and adopting the hand held approach.

    1 · November 22, 2012

  • Selina

    Quick question... With the amount of people expected at the event itself.. Will people be bringing their tripods?? Is it worth even trying!? :-/

    November 22, 2012

    • Selina

      Okey dokey...

      November 22, 2012

    • Selina

      Though I don't have a prime lense, only zoom... Will make good use anyway..

      November 22, 2012

  • Andrea

    Anyone NOT going?
    As all spaces are gone :((

    1 · November 22, 2012

    • Linda

      Andrea, I would def keep an eye on the RSVP list as people may cancel between now and tomorrow. I had to cap the number of people attending because Winter Wonderland have only allocated me 33 permit passes for group photography.

      November 22, 2012

  • Usamm H.

    Looking forward meeting you tomorrow!
    A friend would like to come as well, but I see that the spots are all taken... will it be a problem?

    November 22, 2012

    • Linda

      I have already arranged with Winter Wonderland a limited number of group permit passes for people on the RSVP list only I'm afraid. I have sent out an email about photography rules which I will mail you with shortly since you only just signed up.

      November 22, 2012

  • Jennifer

    Hi Guys, I can't make out from above... are we meeting at Hyde Park Corner tube station or at Hyde Park Corner gate entrance..? thanks.

    November 20, 2012

    • Linda

      Hi Jennifer, it will be easier to group by Hyde Park Corner tube exit rather then the WW park gates themselves. I will try and get the tube exit number and put it up on the page :)

      November 20, 2012

    • Jennifer

      Cool, thanks Linda. :-) Looking forward to this & meeting everyone.

    Do we need a permit to shoot at the Winter Wonderland?

      Another question (sorry). Is there a latest time when we need to finish our photography at the event? I would hate for us to be asked to finish by 6 or 7pm, as it wouldn't give us much time.

      November 20, 2012

    • Linda

      I think we will be fine for a couple of hours at least. If we stick to their rules there shouldn't be any problems to continue thereafter as a visitor.

  • Vanita

    Hi

    I have two primes 50mm and 28mm both f1.8. Would these suffice. I don't really want to carry a tripod. Do you think that what I have will be good enough.

    November 17, 2012

    • Vanita

      I wouldn't know where to begin! I am quite new to all this. Any tips would be welcome.

      November 17, 2012

    • Farlon R.

      Vanita, they would definately suffice :)

      1 · November 20, 2012

  • Farlon R.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone on Friday :)
