Saturday Night, Downtown Photo Walk

Let's cruise Tejon and do some street photography, capturing the people of Colorado Springs as they head to dinner, the dance clubs, art galleries, etc. Not a class, just a fun outing. No set end time; people can just peel off whenever they need to leave. Will update Meetup with starting location once determined - probably one of the coffeeshops or something.

If you RSVP, but later find you can't make it, please be sure to change your RSVP so I have an accurate idea of how many people to expect.

      Thanks, Chris! I definitely plan to schedule more of these, as it was a good time. I like the "celebrity chase" idea that some were talking about last night, too.

      I just want to run around in giant sunglasses while watching Amy curb stomp someone just so she can get the best angle... I see nothing weird with that...

      No Stick with Nikon..... :) Your 800 is a great camera

      I'm still going to hold interrogations over the matter. Either a Nikon user is happy to have a spare or the canon users are happy to have a trophy. Either way :)

    I haven't been home all day AND I got home pretty late last night. BUT I had a blast. Thanks Ryan for organizing this meetup. And thanks David Soldano & Don Savage for letting me tag along and pick your brains:)

      Thanks, David! It was good to finally meet you, too (King of the Alphas ;-) ). Lost you guys kinda early - did you just head straight for the Bijou overpass? How'd that go?

      January 20, 2013

    • David S.

      We didn't get the light trails we were hoping for at the overpass. So we went looking for some nearby hills to do cityscapes.

    Had a great time!! Ryan did a great job organizing both the meet up and dinner prior. It was a lot of fun and we came up with ideas for future meet ups!

    For a location, maybe we could all meet at Nosh? They have underground parking for patrons... and it is a neat place to eat.
    We could maybe meet there about 6pm, then go on our shoot?

      Looking at the weather.. Saturday looks like it will be about 52 for a high--but evenings (when we lose that sun) --tad chilly.. but should not be too bad.

      Not making it to Nosh... See you at 7:30

    A non-Nosh question... are people taking their tripods? I'm worried it'll be crowded and gets kinda crazy. I'm thinking less is more might be better but wanted to know what everyone else is thinking.

    January 19, 2013

    • A former member

      If you want to bring it, bring it. I imagine small groups will break off from the initial mass anyway, so I don't think crowding will be an issue. That said, I'm throwing caution to the wind and going sans tripod. :)

      It is is after sun-set.. definitely bring it!! Does not take up that much space.. have a great shoot everyone!

    Ryan, yes I plan to be at Nosh.

    Since some of us will be meeting to dine at Nosh beforehand anyway, I decided our meeting/starting point will be in front of the Pioneer Museum, which is right next door. Meet in front, on the Tejon side.

      No worries, Tina. I know how it is - just getting over a cold myself. I got lucky this time; only lasted a couple of days.

    Hi Ryan, Maybe to make it more challenging set a time limit per shot and how many shots of the same set up and only by hand, not try and shoot what you see some one else going for, and use a 50 mm fixed lens or wider, no zooms.

    January 17, 2013

    • A former member
      A former member

      Good ideas, but this is more of a social thing, so I'll let everyone set their own limitations. I'm hoping we end up breaking into smaller groups, too, so we do get more varied shots being shared afterward. Personally, I think I'm just going to be bringing my 50mm and/or 24mm primes along, working within the confines of those (and probably just handheld, too).

    Is everyone planning on bringing tripods?

    January 17, 2013

    • A former member
      A former member

      I'd say that's a personal choice, depending on what you want to shoot. I don't know if I'm going to, as I think I'm going to focus more on "street" photography, just capturing people and such. If you wanted to do some longer exposure, landscape-y type stuff, though, I'd bring it. I think Cori mentioned maybe heading over to the Bijou I-25 overpass and doing some shooting there - the tripod would be ideal for that.

      Of course, now that I just said, I realized we are meeting in front of the Pioneer Museum, and setting up the tripod and getting some nice shots of that at night would be nice. I might bring the 'pod after all...

    Hi, I'm Shooting a Gymnastics even during the day for some friends. If I'm home in time I'd like to maybe meet up with you guys downtown. It shows that the RSVP is full let me know it would be cool to catch up with you all. Thanks

      Hey Rob - I just re-opened the RSVPs, so you can RSVP now if you like. I had closed it because it was getting pretty big, but a few people have since dropped out.
