    NYC Large Format Photography Shoot

    Hey Guys,

    A few of us are planning a large format group shoot in Central Park on February 3. Anyone can show up with any camera, but non Large Format photographers should keep in mind that the LF folks cover a lot less ground in a lot less time.

    At this point we're just beginning the conversation about how this will work. Thus far it has been suggested that we meet up at the boathouse (warm, has coffee) and then go out and shoot.

    It would be fun if a few people are willing to let others try out their camera, since renting various cameras can be expensive and there's nobody in the field to show you how they work. Just an idea. If people are interested in that I'm thinking it would be helpful to know ahead of time. If there was a model I was particularly keen to try I'd rent some film holders in that format and load them up before I went. I for one would be willing to let people have a go with my 11x14 Wisner. I only have five film holders for the day, so if you actually wanted to shoot some film with it you'd need to dig up a holder. (on second thought, if someone has a large changing tent that might do as well...)

    Anyway, if you're interested feel free to respond to this post or sign up for the Northeast LF Event Mailing List I started by going here:

    Your email should be secure, and I don't sell addresses!

    Cheers!

    I might be available. In addition to my 8x10 cameras, I have an 8x20 Korona, but only one holder. Might be kind of limiting.

    I responded over on the LF forum, but I'll probably come with my 11x14", since you don't often get to compare 11x14" field cameras and filmholders.

    I MIGHT be in the city that weekend. If so, I'll join y'all with my 5x7. Do you have a proposed time of day for this get-together?

    Count me in. I will bring my 4X5 and 35mm.

    Wait, is that day the superbowl going to be aired?

    Great! I'm excited about the response thus far. Terence, I'd love to see an 8x20, though I'd understand if it's too much to lug over for two photos... (back to that large changing tent idea....) Should be a lot of fun. We have not yet set up a time. If the list of planned attendees gets big I may setup two meeting times so that the people that travel have some leeway.

    I'm also waiting to hear back from the Central Park Conservancy on their tripod/photography rules & regs. If a permit is required I'll take care of that.

    Cheers!

    It's good to call, since we would be a group, but usually there is no problem with tripods in the park. I shoot there often. There are always birders with tripods, film students, and commercial wedding shooters. I think they're lenient even with the commercial shooters. Commercial film crews usually get city permits, I'd assume, since they have lights, vehicles, cranes, and such.
