George Washington Masonic Temple and Old Town Alexandria

  • Feb 12, 2011 · 5:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Lets do some images of the George Washington Masonic Temple and then move on to Old Town Alexandria. We can all meet at the King Street Amtrak Station. There will be a lot to photograph right there: the station, trains (if you didn't get enough at the last meetup), Metro trains, the Masonic Temple, some of the newer parts of Alexandria. If that is not enough to keep you happily clicking away we can move on to Old Town Alexandria. There is a Metro in the same vicinity and I can provide a shuttle service from the Metro to the train station side of the tracks.

    This was great meetup, very challenging for me to shot a tall building without it falling backwards or forewards. As always the photographers in attendance were fun to be with. Got a bit to cold for me to go to Old Town, will have to make this excursion some other time.

    The only thing that was negative, was the cold weather! I'm afraid that I did not dress appropriately! Otherwise, it was a great idea and a nice event with a lot of nice people!

    A special thanks to everyone who helped me with tips and suggestions (I was sans a tripod). You made my first meetup a very positive experience. The group inspires you to create beautiful photos.

    What a great place to take pictures. It was a large group and fun time. Everyone was helpful and I learned a lot. Take a look at my pictures here.

    this is the first meet up I'll be attending w/ this group...does anyone know if there is a Starbucks nearby? I know I should be focusing about shooting but I have to stay warm as well =0)

    I am bringing my Nikon D80, borrowed 17-55mm 2.8, my 50mm 1.8, and my fav (although not for low light necessarily) 105mm 2.8 and my own tripod, had little probs with the borrowed older one. Oh and my remote too. Excited about Alexandria.

  • Robert A.

    I'm new to low-light. I need to know what equipment I should bring. I have a Sony a700, a 24-70mm f/2.8, a 11-18mm f/[masked], 50mm f/1.7, and a Zeiss 85mm f/1.4. Besides the camera body and a tripod, I'd like advice on which lens(es) would be worth the weight of carrying.

    It's hard to believe It has taken me this long to meet such a group of people that are all so very helpful and inspiring. My camera sat in my bag for over a year but since last weekend I've had my camera with me everywhere I go. Nothing is complicated when a group of people are there, to be there for each other. I wish I had gone/knew about the airport. I'll be there tonight.

    Hi Terri, yeah I missed being at the airport, but not in the cold, I went to my granddaguther's 2nd b-day party at Chucky
    Cheese and took pictures in the warm indoors. See you tomorrow this time cold or not.

    Hi Paula, I will be there tomorrow evening so I would be happy to help you. I use Nikons and I should be able to answer any of your questions. See you tomorrow, Vincent

  • Terri C.

    Hey Rose, glad to see you are coming. Missed you at the airport. Paula, this is a great bunch of people and everyone is really helpful, don't be nervous, your camera will shake, LOL, just have fun.

    February 11, 2011

  • Rose M. V.

    Hi Paula, I will be there, however I can not answer any question, but there will be plenty of photographers that can and will, this is a really nice group of photographers.

    February 11, 2011

  • Paula W.

    I'm a newbie photographer and I'm as excited as I am nervous. What does one bring to the photo shoot and will anyone be there to answer questions like what settings to use with a Nikon?
