    I was talking to some of the people that attended this Meetup about an event I shot previously that involved shooting. Here're the shots I got then. It's the Cowboy Mounted Shooting Association. They don't have any events in Jacksonville this year, but, I'll keep watching.

    It wasn't a very exciting way to shoot horses, but, it gave a lot of people the opportunity to shoot something different, and to talk about photography.

    Since none of us was sure what the horses were going to be doing, it wasn't an exciting Meetup, but, it was something very different to shoot.

    So...please don't judge me, but I'm brand new to photography and haven't yet decided on the camera I'd like to purchase. So can I come with my cell phone camera until I purchase one?

    I went to this last year. Beautiful horses. Lighting was a pain, but worth it. I will be there long as I am functioning after surgery.

      Got any photos to share from last year? Got any tips to share with the group for this event?

      High ISO, monopod minimum, tripod if possible. Tripod can be a problem if it's getting in the way of other people. Sit as low as possible around the middle of the arena. Here is one I shot of a couple different events: http://www.flickr.com...­ : http://www.flickr.com...­

    Sounds interesting. Has anybody heard anything about the Budweiser Clydesdales coming to the Busch Brewery?

    1 · January 6, 2014

    • Catherine L.

      I have a few friends that work there and they do have them a few times a year out on display. If you call the Brewery they may have a schedule or date idea... Maybe!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
