GPG January 2024 outing

January 20 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

$20

Our first outing for 2024. Mark you calendars:

Saturday, January 20th 9 am till noon.

The plan is to go to Thak Ironworks in Floradale, an authentic old-world forge, to see a demonstration of hot iron being pounded into something decorative, or maybe a sharp-edged pointed thingy. We will get a two hour demonstration (pictures allowed – see below), and then have about an hour to wander about at the forge, shooting whatever catches our eye.

Cost will be $20 per person which we’ll do in cash please. You can either pay me before or at the event. I’ll keep a list of those interested, so as to get an idea of numbers. Please respond by email. We will need a minimum of 10, but there is room for more, with tiered seating in the studio.

Do not wear your Sunday best, This is a working forge and it’s very messy, and can be noisy too.

Afterwards, there is a reservoir within walking distance  (image #3) that usually has a number of birds, as well as a coffee/pastry restaurant, all within a short walk or a 3 minute drive. See images below:

Weather does not matter as we will be indoors.

Gear: A short telephoto in the 24-70 or 70-200mm range and a tripod or monopod. The studio is fairly dark, so a faster lens would be ideal, you’ll be shooting at higher ISOs.

Please email me at the GPG address if you are interested.
Cheers and we hope to see you then.
