People Watching (Street Photography)

Street photography - the oldest form of photography (the earliest extant photo, 1829, is a view of a street). We're going to meet  at the Edwards Jones Dome (which used to be the TWA dome - remember TWA?) and wander the streets. Here's some links to street photography sites - lots of ideas to be mined there!

Enjoy!

    The meetup saturday May 5th was both fun and energizing. It was a pleasure to meet and shoot with all of you. Hope to see you all again at another meetup.

    Mathew and Leslie, I added to the suggest section for a photowalk for those two areas. I know Ed will have to confirm with everyone.

    just an fyi for you guys. There's actually a 1st annual march that's going on down here this day. It's call the Million Minor March. I'm shooting the event and will be set up at Kiener Plaza where the march ends. According to what I've been told the "minors" are suppose to start their march at noon at soldiers and end at 12:30 at Kiener. Parking will probably be in issue around here, but I think you all will get some good shots.

    Do you know approximately how long you will be there? I will be in STL that day and finishing up around 11 a.m. and would love to join. I'm rarely about to do so.

    OoO, I knind of want to do this. Although I've never done street photography with a group before though. This would be a new experience for me since I'm normally out by myself. I do have business downtown this Saturday too. hmm...

    I forgot my husband committed us to having a cinco de mayo party at our house for his work people! I am going to have to miss this one.

    I would have Ed place the CWE or Loop on the following month. I know Ed would love for all us to park at his place one saturday morning and walk to loop. I would like to have another walk after this one and your choice is good, where else could we go. Maybe this could turn into a series or something

    Washington street will allow you to move about freely, abundant stores and people. It will help with confidence in shooting street photos and will give you some breathing room to learn more about manual settings. There is a lot of texture, shade and movement in the area,plus it much larger street wise, you want to disappear sometimes. CWE and the Loop is very tight and short in distance and would require a very confident person, where as doing this first would help with confidence for people.

    April 10, 2012

  • Matthew

    Is something going on at the dome that would qualify this location for people watching/street photography? Seems like the loop or CWE would be ideal for this event.

    Just my $.02

    Have to cancel with the date change. Bummed!

  • Dave C.

    So glad it was NOT April 18! Today it is raining with hail and flashlights would be useful! So what happens if it rains? Perhaps a standard policy on rain cancellations or alternate plans would be useful!
