What we're about

I just want this to be about just going out, taking pictures and socializing. What I want to do is schedule informal shoots about every three weeks and then after the shoot meet up somewhere like a bar and talk and get to know each other. I will try to typically schedule shoots that are located about 25 miles from central Austin so it is somewhat convenient for most people in the area. I do plan on scheduling most events on Sunday afternoon. I also keep my events somewhat small and typically keep the attendance under 40. When events get to big they become impersonal.

I forgot to add my style of photography is shooting mostly landscapes, historical sites, black and white, old dilapidated stuff and lots of other stuff. I shoot digital (hey who doesn't) and shoot both medium format and 35mm film. I have been doing still photography for about thirteen years.

I also will say I do this site for fun and it does cost me money to organize this. I am just simply doing this because I enjoy photography and want to meet others who enjoy doing the same thing. There isn't a cost, but donations are always gladly accepted.

Another thing I will add is that I do like it when people actually post a pictures of themselves which helps me identify who you are and this makes other members know who you are. When you post a pic of your car, flower, pet or other random shit; I haven't a clue who you are.

I also am always looking for event organizers and if you are interested in doing this let me know. I am pretty open about what people can schedule.

Light Painting in the Park.

Bull Creek District Park

• What we'll do It’s time for the annual light painting shoot (weather permitting). The start time is set before it gets dark to allow us some time to talk through the possibilities and plan the shoot. Bull Creek Park offers a variety of spaces and it's free. Those of you who are adventurous might want to try light painting over the water to get reflections or among the rocks and trees. This particular portion of the park is on Lakewood Drive (https://austinparks.org/bull-creek/). There is decent parking just north of where the creek crosses the road. If you don't see the restrooms from the parking lot you're in the wrong place. We can meet under one of the large shade trees. I will bring a selection of lights, LED sticks and maybe some sparklers. If you have light emitting devices please bring them. Off camera flashes can be interesting too. This is a collaborative event. You will be expected to spend some time in front of the camera working the lights as well. You will need a tripod and maybe a remote release. Long exposures eat batteries so make sure you have spares or are at least fully charged. Most important of all is bring an active imagination and be willing to participate. Bring a flashlight and watch where you’re putting your feet. There will be unattended cameras on tripods so in the interest of safety, no children and no animals. Obviously, no fire and no fireworks. When we're done we can go to Waterloo Ice House at 360 and 2222 for a cold (or warm) beverage. Kevin Shore[masked] Flawlessexposure.com • What to bring • Important to know
