December 20th photoshoot
« on: November 28, 2007, 02:57:26 AM »
Aaron and I are going to go down to Colorado Springs on the 20th to the Garden of the Gods for a photo shoot weather permitting.

I was thinking we would meet at the carpool lot at Castle Pines Pkwy right outside of Castle Rock about noon-ish, pick up lunch, head down to the Springs, and start shooting!

The more the merrier!

I was afraid of that, but was hoping some people might have the day off since it was close to X-mas.

I forgot to mention I will have a set of professional strobes over X-mas break as well, so if there is a place anyone knows of down there with outlets, I can bring those with me.

Awesome, I was hoping you could come.
And one of the guys had the idea of using a large power inverter to power the strobes. Hopefully it will work.

Quick update: Just took a peak at the 10-day and it looks like it's going to be around 45 degrees and no chance of precipitation. So it's still on.

Here is the list of who is coming.

I hope to make this still.  I have the car in a few pieces, new suspension going in, too cold to work on it now, and the dash is out of the car for a re-do...so it may not be "photo worthy".

Also, if the start is that late, I won't be able to hang for very long, family dinner night with the parents and sister/brother in law at 530p up in Denver...so I will be pushed for time...

That being said, change me from a fo-sho, to a maybe.

I might actually be able to make this now.  probably wont be able to do the drive to the springs, and the photo shoot, but likely can join you all for some lunch in C-rock.  I'll know more when we get closer.  but if lunch is still on I'll try to get there.

I have an appointment at Autobahn for service at 930am that morning.  If I make it home in time, and the MINI suspension is dialed in, I will at least meet you all for lunch...but think the push to GOG will be a bit tight for timing with family night that night.

Any idea where and when the Springs people are meeting at? I might be able to make this, and if I do, I'll try to bring my lights and a Vagabond for power.

We are meeting at the Chipotle at the Chipotle off of Garden of the Gods and Centennial. I probably won't be bringing my strobes with me because the PC connector I got didn't work and I am going to have to order another.

Is there a time set? I'm not sure if I'll make it, but I'm gonna try.
