Upcoming events (5+)
Urban Arts, the group that sponsored A Night of Art & Burlesque has invited our group to participate in their upcoming event A Night of Art & Music. Music is the theme and instead of burlesque dancers and live models we will be shooting live musicians. The event will be Sat, Dec 18th from 7 pm to 1 am in Urban Arts warehouse at 558 Vandalia St in St Paul. Again there will be an art exhibit and 4 bands: Brasamba, Glo Pesci, The Abstract Pack and Sunny Era. The setting will be a bit more light challenging since it is in a warehouse. But, they will have spots up around the artwork and plan filter lights in the band area. Also, they will have the infamous Miles Mendenhall as the Guest Artist from the hit Bravo show Work of Art. His work and installation/performance piece may also make for some great shots. Tickets are $10 in advance at www.VitalCulture.com or $15 at the door and include music, appetizers and refreshments. After the buzz of their first event, you won?t want to miss this one.
We are supporting members of the Minnesota Zoo. The zoo routinely has one Monday a month when there are no large groups so that members have a quieter zoo. One of those days might be ideal for a meetup. However, this time of year, the zoo hours are 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and of course, this is a working day for many people.
If might be fun to learn some tips and tricks for nature and wildlife photography outdoors during the winter. How do we protect our equipment? How does snow fool your auto-exposure? Hand warmers on your lens? What else? I don't know. Anyone out there have some experience in tracking down winter beasts without ruining your gear or dying of hypothermia?
