Our monthly meetup this month will be a road trip to Hocking Hills on Saturday.
It's going to be chilly and breezy, so dress in layers. While the group will all 'start' around 10:00am, everyone shoots at different times and paces and in past years, everyone has spread out across the park in their own fashion.
Many of the routes require comfort with stairs and uneven terrain. It's also supposed to have rained the day before, so I'd expect some slick conditions in areas.
Everyone to meet at the Old Man's Cave (Hocking Hills State Park) Visitor Area / Gift shop. 10am
(10 am - sharp ... folks will head down into the park at 10 so think 'early'. Also, lots of people head down for sunrise shots over the local lakes ... something to keep in mind, 10 should give any early trippers enough time to do some advance shots.)
About halfway down to Hocking Hills from Columbus on the right hand side is a McDonalds near an old mill / grain elevator.
They're pretty quick even with long lines.
Gas is sparse when you get really close to the park, so bone up early. There's a WalMart an exit or two before the Hocking Hills exit, and a small 'mart' not far from the park that has snacks and batteries if you need them (I believe the gift shop has some too.)
Meet other local Digital Photographers and Photoshoppers to talk about the latest digital gear and techniques! We're an open group that typically meets monthly. Every other month our focus generally shifts from Photoshop (image editing) to Photography (image taking.) Don't be afraid if you're new to photography or photoshop, there are already people at all age levels in the group. On the flip side, if you seem to know everything there is to know about either....we want you too since there's always some hidden corner left to be introduced to. If you want outings, I strongly suggest looking at http://www.flickr.com/groups/columbus-meetu... Every month there are usually a few events around town to get out and go shoot with photographers at all skill levels. We have some fairly good overlap members-wise with that group as well.
