Albion Basin photowalk
Ann torrence is leading us up to a beautiful spot early early in the morning.
This promises to be an awesome trip for only those tough enough to get up that early and hike.
I don’t have any trouble waking up and I love mornings, so I plan on being there.
Small groups like this make for a great way to get to know each other… hikes are specially great.
No one should be able to use the excuse that they have a wedding going on at that time of the day, you don’t come it’s because you’re not tough enough. haha J/K
Bring your best toys but I’m assuming we should pack light for the hike.
I’m still deciding what to bring. One camera and a couple lenses.
14-24 for the great panoramic views. 70-200 in case some critter needs to be shot and the 24-70 because I’m buying it today.
And maybe even the 50 1.4 because it’s so light anyway.
I’ll also get to try out my super lightweight carbon fiber tripod.
So i guess I’ll be trudging along with all that stuff… but oh well… I’ll probably convince someone to shoot with the 70-200 for part of the hike.
Ann Torrence says:
“Nautical twilight is when we need to be working out compositions, to be ready for things to start to color up by civil twilight.”
“Then after sunrise, as the sun races across the valley, you can track with it to do flower portraits, or trundle up toward Secret Lake (about a 1 mile hike). Possibility to see moose, perhaps closer than you’d like.”

Jeremy hall is the great organizer.
He plans in advance and always has a great turnout… if he can’t do it really well, he doesn’t do it at all.
He is the master organizer of Utah’s highly successful PhotoCampUtah (P.s. sign up to be notified about PhotoCamp 2010, we’re gonna plan an even bigger better one this next year)
It’ll be at his house, bing some food and mingle without the pressure and need to take pics.
Of course there will most certainly be a lot of us being geeky and talking techy.
Photo Editing SHOWDOWN
This wednesday at 6pm the gloves come off when up to 10 local photographers compete at the Draper Pictureline
177 w 12300 Draper Utah
They will be editing the same batch of photos and then the audience (which is guaranteed to be standing room only – so come and expect to stand)
We will all vote on our favorites and in the end crown this month’s champion.
There is still time to sign up to compete as most people just want to watch.
It will be a great learning experience and I will be presenting the pictures at the end and using it as a teaching moment. Showing what the photogs did to achieve their results.
We will be accepting pictures for use in competition. If you’d like to see your picture edited in about 10 different ways send them to me firstname.lastname@example.org
They must be in DNG format and not already edited. That’s about the only requirements.
The Jarvie Game is a competition, primarily to win a workshop, and it will be concluding early next week and the winners will be announced.
The competition is in the form of a game that ends Tuesday at Abt Midnight
There are over 50 people competing for several options of prizes, foremost among them is an all day long photography workshop.
The person with the highest point total in this game is awarded an automatic spot.
Then up to 8 other spots will be given, some at random, some to those who’ve competed well.
There is still time to enter, winning the most points will most likely not happen now, but at least get yourself in this drawing.
Even if you don’t need a photo workshop. Other prizes include a 1 on 1 in lightroom training or a 20×30 print etc…
As a note primarily for JaG competitors
There has been lots of response to past assisting opportunities on weddings and other related jobs.
In this next week there are several more available.
Those with high points in the Jarvie Game will be given more consideration
I will be accepting people to assist in the following
Tonight(Friday) bridals – 6:30pm
Tuesday – wedding – 3pm- 7
Thursday = Bridals - 6:30
Friday = wedding – most of day
Saturday = Wedding – most of day

Need more persuasion the Utah photographic community is among the best in the world??
We just had a Strobist group meetup at the great Salt Lake where a lot of people showed up.
A couple weeks ago with the World Wide photowalk there were over 5 photowalks in the Northern Utah area, with full capacity on a couple of them
There are a couple consistent groups who meet on a weekly basis.
There are great stores like pictureline and pixels who serve the community well.
Lots of photographers who share quite a lot.
The first PhotoCamp here was way way sold out and over 300 people came. When 200 were expected.
Probably great percentage of photographers in Utah than any where else.
And I’m here… so take that.
