Lititz Junkyard Event

  • July 13, 2013 · 7:30 PM
  • Gerhart Machinery Company

A Lancaster Photo Meetup favorite.  We're going back to the Lititz heavy machinery junkyard!

Details for the Meetup:

We'll be meeting at The Gerhart Machinery Company (910 Brunnerville Rd, Lititz, PA 17543 for those of you needing GPS directions) at 7:30 PM and staying around until all the light has gone away (or 9 PM). When you arrive at the location, look for the soccer fields and park on the north side (second entrance- see image below).

Things to bring: This is a "light rain" or shine event and all the machines are in the dirt/ mud. Bring a pair of shoes that you don't mind getting dirty. A tripod will be essential for longer exposures or for when the light is getting low. There are innumerable textures to shoot, so I'd also bring a macro lens if you have one.

You'll be seeing mostly cranes but they also have construction equipment and general large machines. Shoot me (Joel) an email if you have any questions before arriving. See you there!

    By my own mistake, didn't talk with anyone. Neat place to shoot though.

      My apologies but the intent behind my comment was pretty unclear (also, the Meetup app didn't notify me about these comments!). I've been to a couple monthly meetings, a workshop, and this photo walk. Everyone has been very friendly and welcoming, and I'm always warmly greeted by someone. I don't think it's really a shortcoming of the group so much as a shortcoming of my own! I feel very welcome, I just tend to be painfully shy, which is made worse by the fact that, as a beginner, my photography skills and knowledge are severely lacking. Thanks for reaching out, though. Every event I've been to has been fascinating, fun, and incredibly valuable! So, thank you!

      Are you coming to the Mentoring session tomorrow? If you are not, you should consider it, it is a great way to learn ;)

    There are several of us that Mentor starter-outers. So never have a question go unanswered. Benoit, Lynn, Joel, Brian B and Brian Evans, as well as Mark and John Flinchbaugh are mentors. None of us mind answering questions at almost any time. Of course, many of the regular club members can help as well. There are no stupid questions, only unasked ones.

    I'd love to be on the waiting list. Not 100% sure if I can go but I'd love to. Especially since it's like 5 min from my house.

    I just wanted to let everyone know that I opened up the waiting list for this event. If you don't have a spot right now, sign up and then watch your email or check back here Saturday morning/ midday to see if a spot opened up.
