Virtual Meetup - Summer Vacation Time!

The duration of this meetup is from July 1 and up to and including Labour Day (September 2, 2013).

The theme of the meetup is VACATION and there are three categories:
• Day Trips
• Weekend Trips
• Longer Excursions (road trips, vacations that include plane rides, bicycle tours, etc)

This extended virtual meetup will allow every member sufficient time to plan for your photographs and to post pictures from your summer “vacations”.  Vacations can include being a tourist in your own town or out of town trips.

Rules:
1. Your SUBJECTS must be related to any “vacation type” outings in at least one (or all three) of the above categories
2. Location: ANYWHERE your "vacation" takes you (local or foreign places)
3. Post up to 5 pictures per category for a maximum of 15 photos.  If you choose, you can also pick only one or two categories and post any combination of pictures. But the maximum amount of photos per member is 15 pictures.
4. With each picture, include in the caption where the picture was taken, so us fellow travel bugs/photogs can plan our own next trip!

The purpose of the meetup is to learn and practice the techniques of photography, as well experience new and interesting places through another person’s eyes (as well as get ideas for our own travels)

Happy snapping and have fun!

"Please be a traveler, not a tourist.  Try new things, meet new people and look beyond what's right in front of you.  Those are the keys to understanding this amazing world we live in." - Andrew Zimmern

    Hi everyone... I just want to encourage you to post your photos.. my own vacation has been postponed, perhaps cancelled.. thanks to an unruly bull mastiff that attacked and nearly killed my chihuahua.. but that's another story.... but I hope to be posting a few more weekend or day trip adventures. Happy snapping...

    If any one of us would like a challenge as exchange assignment
    Placing an egg on a plate and photoing it with a full shadow of the egg on the plate. Great way to learn about lighting. Just an idea as many of us not able to meet at the same time

    Hi everyone.. I am looking forward to seeing all your pictures. As I am away for most of Monday, I've created a folder under the PHOTOS section, ready to go for the start of the meetup.

    Cheers - have a great weekend!

    How many photos are we limited to uploading?

    June 26, 2013

    • Christine B.

      A maximum of 15 pictures or 5 pictures in each of the three categories.. but if you only want to submit to two categories then you can split between the two categories.. but the key is 15 pictures in total. I hope that makes sense.
