Indicated, although I will have too youngsters two tend to, so it may not be feasible.

Two or three lights, any lens on a light-tight box are sufficient for the realisation of the most convincing image. Man Ray 1935.

The youngsters are always welcome. It's their parents that present the problem. :)

I must give credit where it is due, she did a excellent job helping me do a complete seal replacement - i think the promise of a baby-cino (or more importantly the choc sprinkles one top had something to do with it.

Damn Gary - no good since I've arranged with Matt to go to Mt Tomah that weekend since the flowers will be at their peak - In fact I just came on here to put it up as a forum outing and you beat me to the punch.

C'est la Vie I guess.

Now that sounds an interesting and doable meet. Why not put it up anyway. You may well get a few of us Westites coming along

And there's no reason why you can't do both: Sunrise with Gerry somewhere on the coast; morning tea at Chez Stark, then off to Mt Tomah afterwards.

Wrap it up with Sunday in Canberra for Floriade. :)

I've just posted up the details for the Mt Tomah Macro Meet HERE - it's a 9:30 am start to beat the crowds so no way to do both. Hopefully the snow last wekend didn't ruin the flowers.

Fy'allsI ...

I currently have a D800e, 650D, a Sony ActionCam and a Lytro for review, and these should all be available for play.

Any more takers?

So who actually is coming tomorrow?

Patrick and family?

Gerry perhaps?

Is that it?

Doesn't bother me too much - more food for those of us who are there.

Thanks Gary and Dee, great food and nibbly's as always, company was excellent and also the tryout of the D800e was ...well depressing since it is damn nice.

Animation education was also good, but i have been now instructed that we need to own that 7 dwarfs and Snow White video, i don't think my story book is gonna cut it anymore :)
