Afternoon all, I was thinking it might be fun to organise a meet in central London to do some low light photography in the next couple of weeks. If anyone is interested just reply below and then we can organise a date that fit's in with everyone.

Im up for it - I will try not to go to the pub first this time. (Didnt make the last london evening meet because we had a pre meet pint)

Mid week (Tues/Wed/Thurs) would be best for me

I'm definitely interested - but can only make it on Tues 28th March, as I only work in London one day a month!

If you happen to plump for that date, I'll be there! If not, no worries.

Sorry I didn't post yesterday I was out of the office without internet access.

Ok well first of all I was thinking about along the Thames we could either start at the House's of Parliament and work upto St Pauls or start the other way round and see were we get to. Has anyone else got any ideas of what they would like to photograph.

Would this Thursday be to soon for people if so then we could do the 21st or the 23rd.

Anything but cliched london tourist sites like the houses of parliament and St pauls, and red buses.
I guess the challenge could be to came away with a fresh looking shot. Personally I would like to do somethng a bit more gritty.

Martin, what sort of things are you thinking of? As this would really decide the area of town we goto. What sort of thing is everyone else looking to photograph.

I'm going to be doing this as a more regular thing around different areas of London myself so if we don't get what people want this time, your more than welcome to join me in the future.

Martin, don't worry I don't see it as that. It's better to try and fit in with what everyone wants to do.

I would recommend against Brixton, I live down the road from it and it's not the most advisable place to walk around with a camera. Not because of the threat of being mugged, but more to do with the fact that so many people walk around with a serious attitude problem.

I like the idea of Soho or the city, why don't we put it to the vote.

So the choices are around the river, soho or the city. Let us know what you would prefer.

Personally I just think Martin is looking for an excuse to cover his hobby of hanging round Soho doorways.

Any would be good for me Smile

I've heard from a friend that it can be quite an exspensive hobby.
