The First Strobist Informal Meet-up...

On Saturday, 04-18-09, after paddling for three hours and forty minutes, then biking for 1 hour and thirty-five minutes, I attended the 1st Strobist Informal meet-up.

Several of us met in downtown Minneapolis. There were six models scheduled, all but one cancelled at the last minute. Thanks for Casey Millard who showed otherwise we would have had to shoot one another or go home. Several of us stayed to shoot Casey. We took turns.

I came across a group who were on the prom. They were from St. Michael. All the girls were falling in line to get their photo taken. The girls were dressed in very colorful dresses.

After the informal meet-up Sara wanted to go get pizza so four of us headed over to Pizza Luce. A while later Andy and KC showed up after we had finished our pizza. The pizza was excellent.

Sunday, 04-19-09, I paddled for three hours and fifty minutes. I was thinking about going on another photo walk but it was moved inside since it had been sprinkling on and on all day.

It was just as well that I didn’t go. I went downstairs to do some laundry and I saw that my water heater had a leak. I went to Lowe’s and bought a new water heater and I installed it later in the evening.

Monday, 04-20-09, I decided to take the day off from paddling. I went to the health club and worked my legs then did an hour on the LifeFitness cross trainer.

In the evening I attended my first Night Photography class. The instructor is C-J Christopherson. We got out early from class, but the next four scheduled class days are on Sunday evening that will run around four hours.
