Potential meet idea

I am getting ahead of myself ...

But I wanted to see if you guys wanted to turn a one of the future meet months in to a photo meet month??

I wanted to do some new photos with my new lighting set up and if you guys want we can make it a full out photo meet ...

Thoughts ???

Game. Can it be a Sunday? I think a good spot would be the sabine bridge since u can get the whole of downtown in the shot.

Seriously google it, it's a great spot.

Where ever man ... I would like to do it either Early in the morning (Sunrise)
Or early in the Evening (Sunset).

In the middle ... find a nice garage ... or beat up part of town (Urban look)

Maybe some more graffiti ...

Yeah, sunday would be good. Less people on the road and out and about.

ray, i think you should emphasize why it should be early or later in the day. my clients dont understand why i ask them to be at the shoot early or very late until i explain it to them ;)

The Sky ... Sky has the best exposure during those particular time of day.

When the Sun is Right above (noon obviously) you get hard shadows. Now with cars ... thats not particularly bad, but the sky will be, what photogs call BLOWN OUT.

Every body explains this a bit different. But yes, Darryl is right. An explanation is good for you guys.

And Dean ... the shoot will be with lights ... hopefully your camera can read along.

I have a light meter and all plus was thinking about pulling out some Pocket Wizards for the shoot ... maybe ... or pull out my recent try of the eBay triggers ...

Don't worry if this flies over your head ... I know Darryl knows what I am talking about.

Just know, we make you guys look good.

my brother knows this place over by kingwood it is right under a bridge on hwy 59 (maybe Chris knows it also) there is this river people go fishing and camping


those are some pics I took today with my cellphone and the bridge on the back its the old bridge

another place would be near the airport, they have this places you can park and watch the planes land, it is open only in the afternoon I think, and there is little roads around there that are kinda cool
