With the ranks of Pentax owners steadily growing in number, I thought it would be a good idea to catch-up with one another to share info, try out stuff and just to drink coffee.

I'd like to suggest either a Friday evening or a Saturday morning. If for a Friday evening (7.30pm onwards), we could meet somewhere central, talk/get to know one another, then adjourn for a nite shoot. For a Saturday morning (7.30 am onwards), we could meet someplace like the beach/Botanic Gardens/city; shoot people, nature, landscapes and adjourn for some brunch. I know we all lead busy schedules but I propose maybe something not exceeding 3.5 hours.

I thought we can plan for next Friday or Saturday (1 or 2 June). Post if you think you prefer Fri or Sat and suggest a location to meet. (must have nice food nearby :bsmilie: )

Err, its FRIDAY NIGHT as I think all of us got something or other on Saturday nites (dinners, parties, concerts, etc).

FRIDAY NIGHT
1) creampuff (Suggest somewhere near City Hall - easier access for those coming from work)
2) night86mare


SATURDAY MORNING

City Hall is good - perfect place for night shots anyways; most of the suitable places for night shots are rather out of the way, hrm, unless you like HDB sceneries.. =D

I'll be perpetually free these few weeks for Friday night. Ups for creampuff!

Don't worry bro, I fully understand the demands of time when one has young kids. I too have to get my wife to cover me.
If anyone needs to contact me for next week's meet-up, can call me (Denis - 96861414).

Can still stop by and meet up. After all, we can all learn a thing or two from you, especially your macro technique.

Sorry but Sat afternoons are kinda tight, at least for me, that's why I suggest either a Friday evening or Saturday morning. I'm ok with both time slots, obviously the range of what to shoot is better in the day hours but some have to work have classes on Sat.

Yes whether oldie or newbie, guy or gal, all are welcome. :)
knyghtfall81, unfortunately I've passed my K10D to my nephew on a somewhat long term loan, so I can't lend you an extra digital body to play around. But please bring your film camera along.
