Free Walk and Wonder, October 16th

Friday, October 14th, 2016

Geoff has proposed a leaderless walk; the plan is to meet at 10am on Sunday (Oct16) at the Starbucks on the NW corner of King & Yonge. Those who are there will decide on the route and stops. “We can organize ourselves based on numbers, weather and photo interests. There’s lots of local knowledge and photo experience to be shared.”
If you’re joining the walk after they start, Geoff’s phone number is 416-571-1809.

Portraits & Pot Luck, August 21st

Wednesday, August 10th, 2016

Thanks to Andrew for hosting this!

Time for a “walk” in the shade …

Andrew’s address: 40 Harriet St, Toronto …. 1 block north of Leslie & Gerrard

The plan: Gather at my house/backyard at 11am and for a couple of hours we will take portraits of each other – Yes! —- YOU get to be the models as well as the photographers.
I will have a few set ups in and around my house, plus there are some locations on my street that we can use.
I have light boxes, umbrellas, a few strobes, universal trigger … some stuff.
Bring your off camera flashes, any props or other gear you think appropriate

At 1pm-ish we will sit down for a pot luck lunch.
My backyard is quite large with lots of seating and is 95% shaded – by the trees, by the permanent tarp and the temporary parachute.

After lunch we will sit in the shade and talk a lot …..
