A day in the barn

Please add my phone number to your cell NOW:[masked]-0481. You will need to cal me if you are late. And please read this all before you sign up :)


A day in the barn is a time for one on one time, photo friends and photographic opportunities. And it is picnic style, so bring your lunch and drink too!

Our host Meggan, is opening her barn for us to gather and take pictures and I will help you with your settings, answer questions and help you to figure out your cameras and some exposure issues.

There are 3 horses, 1 poney, 1 cat, 2 dogs and 2 goats, as far as I know :)

The barn is pretty cool and we can be inside and outside to take pictures.

If I am lucky, Meggan can ride the horse for us to take some pictures - hint, Meggan!

This is to be a fun and informal talk about photography, low light, buttons and exposure, composition, etc. The target is to help the people who are still struggling with their cameras and get some fun taking pictures.

Instead of putting her address here publicly, I am opting for preserving her privacy and we will all meet at Starbucks by Lexington and Woodmen, in the same shopping center where King Soopers and McDonalds are. It is next door to McDonalds, in case you get lost in the shopping center.

We will meet at 7 AM at Starbucks and leave at 7:30 am to Meggan's home, which is in Elbert, CO, about 25 minutes driving EAST.

The 30 minutes  between 7 am and 7:30 am is your tolerance time so we all go together. That will give us time to grab a cup of coffee and make some introductions for the new faces :)

The idea is to be at her house at 8 AM. There is a 25 minute drive from the coffee shop.

If you don't show up by the time we leave, call me. I am not putting her address here.

If you are late, please call me:[masked]


What to bring:

• your own lunch and drinks

• layers: it can be cool in the morning in a barn

• your camera

• your manual

• maybe a flash, if you have one

• a tripod if you wish

• Good mood for sure!

• Kindness with your hostess.

Call me if you have any questions:[masked]

    Meggan and Simone, Thank you for hosting this Meetup! The opportunity to photograph the little girl with the pony that she loves so much was priceless. I liked the open spacious layout of the barn. You fit a lot of people in there today. I was disappointed that I had to leave early. Thanks again.

    Mone...I am so sorry, but Lorin and I have to back out. I woke up sick and super nauseated. Definitely don't want to get anyone else sick or make you suffer through a migraine...not sure yet which one it is. I am very disappointed. Sorry!

    I was signed up for this, then Charlie kicked me out of the group when I was late this afternoon to a class. He said I could rejoin. I'm still planning to attend if that's alright.

    The weather channel hourly forcast shows rain again at 7am and all morning on Sunday. Is it also muddy? Can this be rescheduled?

    If the pass is open there will be no problem. The weather is still questionable for Sunday according to noaa.gov. Of curse, the rain could be fun☺ Keep us posted.

    This sounds like a blast and a half. I would love, love, love it. I'm in the Springs this Sat and next Sat, doing two-three meets each day, but the 15th is my mom's birthday. Then afterwards I'm doing a Senior picture shoot for twins (a boy and a girl). I could use this info prior to the shoot, too, but can't just ask my mom to reschedule her birthday or anything of that nature. I'm so sorry to have to miss it.

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.
