Very last minute planning or lack of for a scheduled mini-DSLR Meetup in San Francisco this Friday. Rod Guajardo of www.foursandyfeet.com is in town working on a Music Video shoot and decided to connect with a few people in the Bay Area while he's in town. Along with Michelle of MoshBrown.com, they've mapped out the meeting spot to be the Irish Bank located at 10 Mark Lane #415.788.7152

Using the word mini-DSLR meetup, it should just be a casual meet and greet, food and drink, with no real techincal road map on actual shooting. But hey, If everyone is up for some shooting afterwards, San Francisco is one of the hottest photo spots in the world - Should be interesting. If you want to know more they are also available via Twitter, and I suggest you follow them both.

Yo! Big ups to Waylon from Vimeo for cutting this video!! The 7th annual San Francisco Crawfish boil was fun and the Crawfish was off the hook. The weather was sunny and in the 90's at the Marina Green (lucky day).

While there, I got to meet up with the well known San Francisco Photographer JJ Casas. He was there taking out his lady for her birthday ( Happy B-Day Cher !). More coverage of the 7th Annual San Francisco Crawfish festival can be found on JJ's blog here: https://jcasasphotography.blogspot.com/2010/06/7th-annual-sf-crawfish-boil-and-my.html

We ran around picking up some footage for the guys who put this together every year using a Canon 5D Mark II + 24-105mm IS, Canon 7D + 24mm F/1.4, Zoom H4n, & Rode Video Mic. Each of the cameras rocked the Fader ND Filters to get our shutter speeds to a manageable level while allowing us to shoot with Depth of Field. I'm not the greatest video editor, so Waylon cut up a quick one for us with his FCP skills. There will be a full cut for the event owners later.

Fader ND Filters. Gotta Get these!

This furry critter was used on the Rode VideoMic to block Wind. There wasn't much wind that day. HOT!
