Group meet for cruise/photo day to Great Ocean Road

Hi Guys,

After speaking with GLOBe in PM about photography we decided that it would be a good idea if we could go on a group cruise down Great Ocean Road and also as a photo day to practice landscape/seascape photography techniques and other stuff to do with photography!

My only issue is since we are currently in Winter it may be difficult if it rains all of a sudden.

Date is not yet confirmed as I just want to know who's interested and when will be the easiest time for everyone.

I hope we get a few people going as I think it would be a great way to share experiences and for those more knowledgable in the subject to teach us NEWWWWBZ =P

If it is a good success then hopefully we will be able to organise more photography days to other places of interest or subject matters.

Let me know!

There's a fat maybe, that I might be able to go down.

Yup count me in!

I often go to a spot past Lorne, probably a couple of time a month. Just a cool spot to hang out and watch the ocean and cliffs. So a photography trip added to the mix is a bonus!

Just an idea, but how about we pick a good scene and everyone takes a picture of the same thing, then we return to our homes and post up the picture and see the different results. I dont know how we'd do it, but I was thinking if we could get the edges of the picture EXACTLY the same for each camera - if thats possible, taking turns one at a time - maybe a tripod set up? to compare the same picture.

Anywayz, count me in for a photography day trip :)

You'd need the same field of view for each lens on each camera too to do that :P lol

yeah that seems like a good idea globe!!

or even once a scene/subject is chosen everyone takes shots of how they want it and then not only can we compare photography technique(s) used but also creativity!

kinda like the photo challenges going on here at the moment on everyone will be in the same location.

Doesn't seem to be much interest :(

Maybe this post should be in community events?

Either way if only 1 person is keen, I'm still wanting to go for a great Ocean RD photography cruise :)

I reckon we set a date - I'll nominate Saturday the 30th of August, that gives peeps a month to plan in advance. Either way if you want to come, and the date doesn't suit, post up another date and we'll play it by ear.

I'll ask around.

My brother and I are looking for an excuse to get out on the bikes again. A trip down the GOC with the purpose of photography would be a great excuse.

Bikes?

Excellent!

You can set up camp, start a fire and have dinner ready by the time the rest of us get there :P

lol

yeah i'm going to ask a few people from nissansilvia.com who hang around the photography section. but seems to be only 2 people here (3 including myself)

no matter, its easier to organise if its a smaller group!

30th of august sounds great! its still just over 3 weeks away.

can i post this in community events as well without getting hit the the cross posting stick?

Run it past a mod first - I don't see it being a problem.
