    LF Gathering: Alabama Hills, CA May 6-7, 2016

    Last year was such a success, that we thought we would do it again!

    WHO: Large format photographers

    WHAT: Photography gathering: making pictures, telling lies, drinking wine, beer, and/or other fine elixirs.

    WHERE: Alabama Hills, CA. Campsite coordinates: 36.620895, -118.116395

    WHEN: May 6-7, 2016

    OTHER: Bring your own cameras, film, tripods, etc. Make your own food, travel, and sleeping arrangements.

    Camping is free, but sites are primitive, no restrooms, showers, etc. Plan accordingly. Other accommodations can be made in the town of Lone Pine.

    This year we will camp in Alabama Hills proper, rather than in a nearby campsite. This will eliminate the caravan trips back and forth to our shooting locations. This change means we're back to primitive camping. So bring the appropriate gear. Folding Tables and chairs might come in handy if you can bring them.

    A few years ago a group of us So Cal LF photographers set up camp near a cool vista point. We made photographs until it was dark, and later while we were sitting around the camp light sipping wine and/or beer, one of the photographers, Matt Blais, brought up in conversation the Kickstarter project known as, the Wanderlust Camera... Well, except for the fact that he misnamed it as the "Wildebeest Camera." Slightly buzzed, we all agreed that had the kickstarter project been named as such we all would have invested! Realizing that such a name change would never be occur, we settled on naming our campsite... An so Camp Wildebeest was born!


    Overview

    Here is a link to a Google Earth file showing the campsite location

    We plan on hanging around the Alabama Hills area for the entire weekend, but obviously participants are free to make their own schedules.

    Hope to see some new and old faces!

    A 4x10 image (negative on a light table and photographed w/ digital camera then fooled with in PS) taken from my Alabama Hills camp last month. So far I have found four people out there amongst the rocks.

    But it is more than a day's drive from home, so home I will stay! Enjoy!

    jjames100 here. Long ago I used to meet up at different places with Per Volquartz and the guys. I hope this is the same group with new faces as we used to have a lot of fun and made great images. I will try to make this trip and hope to meet some old faces and new. Here's to Per..........I know he's still with us somewhere.

    12 day count down bump.

    As last year, forecast shows we might have some "dramatic" clouds.
