- Thinking of planning a BBQ/Beam-Shooting/Light photo meet up or GTG some weekend this summer in the Southern Ontario, Canada, Area. ( probally near my small town just 40 minutes north of Toronto, in a darker area way from the city light pollution, better for the beam shots and photography of the Beam shots.
Right now i was thinking of getting a weekend/evening meet up with local Flashaholics & Light enthusiasts in the area to gather for maybe a BBQ / Beamshoot photography after dark, to see how it goes if there is interest.)
I had the idea of bringing my RV to a local recreational Parking area near a Conversation area where some great Beam-shoots could be set up done.
We could to a BBQ dinner, chat about our lights & collections,
then do a Flashlight/torch Beam shoot /photo shoot after the sun sets from the same area.
I would gladly plan the meet, and arrange permissions from the local Park to do the meet, supply the tripods, DSLR camera gear, BBQ supplies, etc. All interested people would have to do is attend and bring your Lights & steaks.
Anyone in this area have any thoughts on this ? Are there enough Flashaholics/Flashlight enthusiasts in the southern Ontario Ares would be interested in such a meet up ?

Updates: once we can get atleast 8 definite interests, i will set the plans in motion. Pass the word around to the Ontario locals !

I'm definitely interested. I wish I could offer more than just interest but my summer months are up in the air right now.
I think this is a great idea (even if Habs fans are in attendance :crackup:).

May be able to make it with some warning. Not sure what I can bring out special this time around. May have to whip something up.

It will be somthing like camping style, just not an over night thing. ( will be set up in a remote parking lot at a dark area just on the edge of Tottenham, near the water tower. :)

I am interested in what this "Special" is now. :D

Unfortunately I will not know it till I build it, but I would likely bring out a 1000 lumen, 98 CRI, 4000K light if I can package it again ... parts have since gone elsewhere. Sort of a spot/flood depending on the optic, but about the nicest light source I have seen.

I do have in mind something I have been thinking of building up. Not sure how it will turn out, but will at least have the "interesting" factor.

Depending on what I am working on at that time (and who has the SUV), I may be able to bring a spectrophotometer too if anyone is interested in the exact tint of their light.

Looking forward to seeing that. The spectrophotometer would be a cool unit to bring along. I have a fiew custom built lights, :whistle: including HID lights. (i will likely bring every light i have there.
