    Yesterday after work, both Jo and I met up at the Smithsonian Metro Station for an evening shoot. Jo armed with his Canon PhotoShot S2 IS and me, armed with my Nikon D200 and a Nikkor 17-55 f/2.8 lens, we both shifted our cameras into manual mode and hit the mall. I won’t bore you all with the 350+ shots I took last night, just the highlights.

    P.S. Jon, no “din din” was involved”. :lol: Sorry about the image sizes but, I wanted to give you the full experience.

    I shot a few Pan Blurs while I was waiting for Jo to arrive...

    dude, you should have let me go first with the posting...there is no way I can compete now!! Good job, and it seems that all went well in the end even there was that little SNAFU.

    I had a great time, and we should all be getting together in 2 weeks...I think a friend from work will be coming on the 22nd as well.

    Anyway, I hope to have mine up no later than the weekend...

    Excellent job Scott, you really need to teach me the panning shots...

    Jon,

    I pre-ordered mine from Penn Camera on 18th Street in DC a week before christmas. I paid in full which put me to the top of the pre-order list and it came in the first week of the new year. The D200 is SWEET! When I bought my D70 two years ago, I knew Nikon would release something on it's pro-like of cameras that was somewhat affordable unlike the Nikon D2X which is out of my league on price so I shot with my D70 knowing some day soon now that D200 would come out and BAMM! There it was. I also pre-ordered the Nikkor 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 G ED-IF AF-S VR DX lens at the same time. Penn Camera told me that the lens would be a while and I would have the camera way before the lens would come in but I was smart. I did not order the kit, I ordered them seperatly and two days after I pre-ordered both, the lens arrived. Even the store was shocked. They told me I had the first one in D.C. LOL Anyways, it feels good once in a while to cut to the front of the line. If you are interested, call Marcus at the 18th Street Penn Cam. He's the man and wil hook you up. His number there is: (202) 785-7366

    Jo,

    It's not a competition so don't sweat it. It's all good. Post away and lets see em, not to mention you did take some cool shots that I was very sad to miss out on due to a little battery power problem I had last night. Post some of those spot light pics. I'm sure they will impress.

    Will there be anything left for ME to photograph when I come to the meet-up? I will be too shy to try and photograph ANYTHING in DC any more since all has already been photographed by some true experts! Nothing's left for some poor travellers from Germany who come all the way for THE photo in the end. THE photo, you understand? ;)

    jo cose, im sure, will be more than happy to jump the white house fence for you. that'll give you something new to shoot. :)

    you sell yourself way too short in the field of photography. as a matter of fact, YOUR photography was discussed during our last meet-up. ;)

    We're just warming up the stage for you guys :) I'm looking forward to it. Any chance of making this thread a sticky for a month or so. I think JoCose will be posting some shots as well.

    Yeah, one of my favorites shots to take and I think I have some great technique. I should have mentioned earlier on this that I did no post processing on any of these shots posted other then the frame and reduction of size. These came straight from RAW to JPG..

    erm...sure, for LaFoto, absolutely! It also depends if GW is in or not...if he isn't then we should get some good pics of me getting up the lawn before getting tackled. If he is, we should get some good shots of me getting tackled before I hit the ground :) Anything for our art though...anything :lmao:
