VISUAL RECAP

Many of you know I’m very active on GooglePlus (my profile)

I’ve added these pictures on my business profile as well so you can comment on them individually.

QUICK SELECT

I very quickly perused the thumbnails of 4000+ pictures and picked out about 50 pictures I thought would be nice to show off from the event, just to wet the curiosity of those wanting to see pictures of the event.

I organized a 3 day photowalk for many of the GooglePlus photographers and we went to this event for 2 days. I’ll write more about that event as well as post lots more pictures from the event.

For now… Enjoy the pictures: (See them here as well)

In the comments let me know which one I should talk more about and I’ll put it up on GooglePlus and Facebook

This was part of an early morning photowalk.

The same one mentioned in the previous post about photo things happening this week in Utah.

I had my handy dandy 14-24 lens out to get super duper close to the flowers. This was like a few inches from the flowers

We got there about an hour before sunrise… but this was a while later when the sun actually rose.

This moose came up pretty darn close to our group. If I weren’t in a group of about 20 people I probably would have scampered away like a scared little school girl. But I figured I was faster than at least a couple of people.

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.”

Photographer BBQ

Tuesday 6PM

Further information can be found at the event page on Facebook

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

Facebook event page

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.

Send Pictures
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 jarvie@jarviedigital.com
They must be in DNG format and not already edited. That’s about the only requirements.

JaG Conclusion

Facebook event page or official blog post describing in full, the event

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…

Assisting Opportunities

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

Respond on the Business page on facebook

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.

A chance to win super duper prizes

BACKGROUND (Yesterday)

I went on a photowalk yesterday.
I was around of a lot of awesome photographers, plenty of seasoned professionals.
But there were also a few photographers who were new to the game.
Some were brand new… having bought a new DSLR camera a week before and in one case the day before.

I have taught a lot of editing workshops recently.
Lightroom editing stuff: For beginners, intermediate and advanced.

But it’s been a while since I’ve taught actual photo skills and camera tech knowledge.
How to take better pictures stuff.
I did some yesterday and I remembered how fun it was.

You can ask Suzanne and Steph about it… we did an unorganized 2-3hr session back when I first met them.
I used to do it all the time for friends years ago when I wasn’t so busy.

I want to do it again. But I don’t want to charge and I want people to earn it.

THEREFORE >> Workshop

I think I want to do an all day kinda photo workshop thingy.
There are other winning options for those not needing or can’t make it to a workshop

If you would like to know more…
