The Group!

Brisbane Strobists, Brookfield, Brisbane, Qld, Australia.

There were a few more, but some had to leave early. That rear flash had not fired on any of the previous shots, so we didn't expect it to go off this time either, but it did, somewhat annoyingly.

Strobist info: Vivitar 285HV camera left at 1/4 (?), pale gold gel, Canon 430EX in shoot through umbrella, camera right, Canon 430EX? rear of group, purple gel, unknown flash accidentally fired at rear.

    That's 'cause we're all wholesome home-grown lads :-P

    No car! Aw, oh well. I wish I hadn't had to leave so early! Very action shot, I like the height. I saw some photos other people took and wishing that I'd had to the thought to bring a ladder with me on the day, not they day after...

    Alas, by the time we got our act together for the group shot, there weren't many people offering ideas and we were starting to lose participants (the call of dinner, etc I presume). So James and I just got everyone up near the stage and shot them with my ultrawide lens. The lighting is less than ideal, and the dynamism is a bit lacking, but given the short notice I don't think we did too bad.

    I almost packed a ladder and a fan, but it was raining when I left home so I didn't want to muck about in the wet.

    Howdy Stranger :) It was a good meet, that's for sure. Kara enjoyed herself, even if it was difficult to get her and her ego back in the car afterwards ;-)

    That's so funny about the rear flash. Wow, wouldn't expect so many people in Brisbane.
  • David de Groot said:

    Ah well it could have been better, but well, we were all tired and lacking in vision by that time of the night.

    Well there's about a million people in the south east of Queensland, so a bit over 20 strobists isn't too unbelievable :)

    Shame I had to leave early :(
  • David de Groot said:
    Indeed, but you did have a bit further to go then the rest of us.

    great shot. i like how a couple of the models seem to be blocking each other. kara is blocking her own light there.
  • David de Groot said:
    I'll put that down to inexperience on Kara's part ;-)

    Indeed they were. Looking forward to the next meet :)
